Story

Mums In Need is excited to partner with Jacky Wood, a Licensed Menopause Champion with Menopause Experts Group, who is generously hosting a menopause workshop to raise funds for MIN.

About the event:

The event will be held online via a Zoom meeting room on Tuesday 30th April at 7.30pm. If you are unable to make the session at the above time, don't worry! We plan to record the session, making this fully accessible to anyone who wishes to take part.

During this event, you will gain valuable insights into the following:

*The role of hormones: We’ll look at the three hormones that fluctuate and decrease during menopause, giving rise to symptoms and changes.

*Symptoms: We’ll talk about the different types, i.e., cognitive, physical, and emotional, and how they can affect us.

*What we can do to help: We’ll discuss ways to support ourselves through changes, taking into account our current lifestyle choices, and learning how we can improve our wellbeing now, and into the future.

Jacky will be available at any time during the session, for you to ask questions.

To attend, tickets are priced at £20, with all proceeds generously donated to Mums In Need.

How to purchase your tickets:

Secure your ticket by donating £20 on this Just Giving account. Once you have donated, you will receive an email with a receipt that includes the Zoom meeting link.

**We intend to record this session for the following purposes:

1) To provide access to paying ticket holders who are unable to attend on the day.

2) To include this session in our Mins' (mums) support package.

By purchasing a ticket and donating, you are giving us permission to record the session. You are welcome to turn off your camera if you prefer not to be recorded.

About the charity

Mums In Need

Verified by JustGiving

RCN 1177170
Mums In Need (MIN) is a unique support service for mothers suffering ongoing coercive control after separation from an abusive partner. We are working to move away from stereotypes and misconceptions around what a victim looks like and raise awareness about coercive control's multifaceted reality. Domestic abuse is always underpinned by intimate terrorism, the emotional and psychological elements of coercive control which shatter lives. Violence is just one piece of the jigsaw that makes up a complex pattern of abuse; it is the iceberg's visible tip. Mums In Need recognises that what happens beyond physical violence is largely unseen by other services, with many victims falling through the cracks. Many organisations help support escape from domestic abuse, but escape is not the end of the story. An escalation in relentless emotional and psychological abuse is common post-separation and is often sustained through shared care with children. Many mothers are left struggling to find the understanding and resources to cope with ongoing, often invisible abuse. This can be a lonely and desperate situation that impacts work-life, other relationships, motherhood and physical/mental health. We are here for these women.
