Not being able to drift off and waking up in the 3am worry zone, poor sleep is the bane of many women's lives (especially when you throw in a hot flush or two). Lorraine and Trish talk to sleep psychologist Kathryn Pinkham about what we need to do to break the cycle and get a good night's rest every night.
To celebrate World Menopause Day, Lorraine and Trish meet women's health expert Dame Lesley Regan, Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Imperial College, who has been reforming and influencing policy for 40 years on the NHS frontline. From humble beginnings, Dame Lesley, a mum of twins, was one of the first women to rise to the top of her profession and has survived three breast cancer diagnoses along the way. Now as Chair of Wellbeing of Women she's helping transform the workplace for menopausal women.
One of the UK’s most respected beauty journalists and authors, Alice Hart-Davis, gives Lorraine and Trish her verdict on the best treatments and skincare ingredients for ageing better, having spent two decades testing every cosmetic procedure, from Botox, filler and lasers to micro-needling and vampire facials.
This week, Lorraine and Trish are joined by Dr Zoe Williams, an NHS GP, TV broadcaster, and former TV Gladiator (no less!). She shares her personal story of growing up in a single parent family and supporting her mum through alcohol addiction, freezing her eggs then finally becoming a mum for the first time at 41. She also has some really useful advice on staying fit and healthy in your midlife years and beyond as well as how to get the best service from your GP.
