Thrive through menopauseIn this first video, Deborah asks Yvonne about some of the greatest challenges facing women going through menopause.

“Yes it’s another whole phase of life, in fact, there are many more freedoms especially if you want to go out and have sex,” said Yvonne.

“A man doesn’t walk around thinking, oh she’s gone through menopause. It’s about how we value ourselves,” said Yvonne.
