We aim to offer informational, social and emotional support during the perimenopause and menopause transition.

This experience that affects half the population is the least taught & discussed of all the major life transitions, and yet when experiencing it, it can affect almost every part of our lives. The Nest wants to offer support to as many people as possible, from pre-perimenopausal to post menopause and fill in the gaps in education.

What if there was a positive side to the menopause? What if it could be a time of rich personal growth and inner transformation! We are exploring what inspires women who experience a positive menopause and to share ways to increase mental and emotional well-being.

Follow us on social media to join in the conversation.

Our mission is to share more about the perimenopause and menopause; to normalise this stage in a woman’s life by providing holistic access to quality information. Check out our resource section below for a list of useful websites and a reading list.

Stay in touch for upcoming workshops by subscribing to our newsletter.

We will be starting a regular Menopause group to share support, information and stories. This monthly group could help us to share beliefs, myths, experiences and meet other people interested in talking about menopause. Exeter based.
