Basic InfoOne year ago on World Menopause Day October 18th 2017, was launched.Hot Flush founders Ann Stephens and Jo Mcewan stumbled into the ‘menopause club’, ill-prepared for the forecast of doom and gloom. This didn’t resonate with us, so we decided to set up our own website and blogs, underpinned with a spirit of positivity. Our aim is to help time-poor women find their way through the menopause ‘fog’, so that they can come out on the other side, being the best that they can be, post-menopause and beyond.We’ve created a lively colourful, and positive website. Our blogs offer credible advice by expert contributors as a gateway to the latest research; all shared in a user-friendly and timely way. Treating menopause as an opportunity to ‘reset’ a healthier wellbeing and lifestyle button. We look at diet, exercise, supplements and natural therapies. We review medical advice including HRT, holistic approaches and self-help DIY. We also feature beauty, fitness, fashion and recipes for managing the menopause maelstrom. Everything we recommend can only help, not harm.We’ve had an exciting year, twice appearing on the BBCR4 Woman’s Hour, firstly in January 2018, on their menopause special along with BBC Radio Sheffield. And again in October 2018 on their World Menopause Day feature. We're also proud to say that our Instagram feed was picked up by MP Rachel Maclean and in the House of Commons general debate on World Menopause day 2018 she recommended Hot Flush as credible menopause resource for women. We link our blogs and vlogs with health specialists and have held two Women’s Health Events ‘Talking Menopause with the Experts’ which have been huge successes with more planned next year.

Every man, woman, partner, business or work colleague will know of someone going through it.

Every woman's menopause is unique, yet many have similar situations, symptoms and experiences and our blogs help them to feel part of a community where they can get practical advice.
