Alexandra Stockwell, MD, is joined by Tricia Brouk for an honest conversation about the often misunderstood topic of menopause. The conversation is inspired by and centered around their journey co-authoring “The Invitation: Vital Conversations About Menopause,” their new book published on September 13, 2023.

Ultimately, this episode is an invitation to reshape the narrative around menopause, fostering understanding, empowerment, and connection for women and their partners.

About “The Invitation: Vital Conversations About Menopause”:
Whether you’re a woman in the midst of menopause, anticipating it, or close to someone who is, you are invited to join a candid, provocative conversation in a safe space where all experiences are honored.
“The Invitation” is an expansive, meaningful dialogue between two friends that unfolds organically as the authors discuss the nuances of their individual experiences, challenge widely held social constructs, and give rise to empowering new perspectives on the menopause paradigm.
Chapters explore physical manifestations of menopause, sex and intimacy, marriage through the lens of menopause, and how it impacts women at work—a topic for which an expert joins the conversation to enlighten readers about both challenges and solutions for female employees going through menopause.
There are also important contributions from three women with diverse backgrounds who share their heartbreaking and poignant personal journeys of feeling abandoned by the medical system and betrayed by their own bodies.
“The Invitation” is not about medical treatments or behavioral solutions. It’s about creating a collective sisterhood; engaging in open, honest dialogue; and validating and empowering one another to embody a different and more inspiring relationship with menopause.
