EPISODE 29: MIND with Shirley Weir
Shirley is the Menopause Chick! Shirley’s perimenopause journey began a little over 12 years ago. Sore boobs, sleep deprivation, depression and brain fog initially led Shirley to her doctor’s office, the book store and “Dr. Google,” but she was left feeling confused, overwhelmed and alone.
At 46, she created MenopauseChicks.com, a mission-based platform that empowers women to talk openly about perimenopause and menopause, navigate midlife health information and connect to professionals who can support their journey.
Shirley was a featured TEDxGastown Women speaker in 2016. Menopause Chicks has been featured by ShareCare (a Dr. Oz site), OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) and Healthline Magazine. In April 2016, Shirley hosted the first-ever online menopause party celebrating her own menopause milestone. She and rock star Bif Naked discussed learning to love menopause, while women tuned in to share their own stories in a private online community, that now has 35,000 members!
