If you’ve found your way here, it’s likely that you've been researching menopause online. So you’ll know how hard it is to find really credible advice. Pretty tough, isn’t it?
It’s hard to know what you can trust, and harder still to piece together a big picture that reflects your experience and gives you the inspiration and ideas you really need to understand and manage what’s happening.
Tougher still to find practical ways to manage your symptoms that are actually worth trying.
Should you trust magnets? The expensive supplements? Go see your GP? Splash out on a menopause specialist through the private sector? Trust in alternative therapies? If you don’t have limitless budget and time to spare, it can feel like a real minefield…
You’re likely to be feeling less-than-brilliant, and you just want answers – and practical help – to feel better. And that’s where we come in.
We get the challenge. And – in a nutshell – we’re here to help. We're your ‘one stop meno shop’ with really credible advice from qualified experts, plus quality products we know really make a difference.
What’s so different about Health & Her?
Help for body mind and lifestyle: the biopsychosocial model
The research we’ve done with women has helped us understand just how complex menopause experiences and symptoms can be. We think the biopsychosocial model approach – looking at the biological (body), psychological (mind) and social (lifestyle) – is a helpful way to discuss what’s changing, the help and expertise that’s available, and the products some women find useful.
Menopause can have an impact on so many levels. By empowering women to consider body, mind and lifestyle –and giving them the tools to improve their experience – we hope to really change lives for the better.
Did you know? The biopsychosocial approach is being extensively and successfully applied in fields including pain, adolescent health and diabetes.
Menopause Symptom Tool & Tracker
Every woman’s experience of the menopause is unique to them. So we have designed an easy-to-use symptom tool which allows women to generate tailored advice and products to suit their needs. It’s a really handy shortcut to a personalised shortlist of relevant expertise and practical products.

Founded by women, for women
Health & Her was founded by a blue-chip FMCG marketer and entrepreneur, Kate Bache, and fellow entrepreneur and former Healthcare Nutricentre Head Buyer, Gervase Fay. Kate explains what inspired our mission:
“Over the years, we’ve seen friends, family and colleagues really struggle with menopausal symptoms. We were really shocked to discover how few resources are out there for women at this life stage, and it inspired us to see what we could do to make a difference. Given our backgrounds in buying and marketing, we spotted an opportunity to take our talents and put our money where our mouth is to help!”
They are supported by a wider team who are – at the time of publishing – 90% female. So you can be sure that we understand your body language!
