For women, by women
The Health and Her story began in 2019, when its founders, Kate Bache and Gervase Fay, decided it was time to cut through the confusion when it comes to female health and build an offering that empowers women to own their journey through menopause.
So, they set about creating what we call next generation menopause care. That’s smart, data-driven ways to use technology, science and evidence-backed natural approaches and access medical advice to better support women and help you discover yourself again. Why are we different? Simply because we are here for women from day one – we’re a brand that focuses on perimenopause and we are passionate about this as we know that women who take action early in their journey will have better outcomes. Just like the women we support we are continuing to evolve, sharing insight and menopause knowledge to deliver the most innovative care in the market whatever a woman’s menopause stage, symptoms, severity, budget or personal preferences.
We have a fantastic opportunity to help women improve their quality of life, which may in turn have the potential to help improve their health, their relationships, and their work life. Listening to what women tell me they are going through has had a profound effect on me – we have the ideas, tools and impetus to change things, and it’s about time someone did! For me, solving problems is a passion. To know that we’re genuinely helping women improve their symptoms is a huge motivation to provide the best products, app and website

We talk to hundreds of women about their symptoms and how much these impact their daily life. Symptoms are causing them to question their relationships, their self-worth and their ability to do their job. It hit me hard. We created Health & Her because we wanted something better for all women, and to ensure that we put the power back in their hands, if we make just one woman’s experience better, through our products and services, then we’re doing a good job.

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.
