Dr. Peta Wright is a gynaecologist, fertility specialist, and the founder of the Vera Women’s Wellness Centre. Peta is a champion of women’s health, and has a special interest in the ways in which nutrition, stress and lifestyle can affect our hormonal balances.

Peta’s mission is to help women understand the power and beauty in their bodies, and to equip them with the tools and knowledge needed to live happy, healthy and empowered lives at any age.

When it comes to aging well, our hormones play a pretty major role. Peta is passionate about helping us understand what’s happening in our bodies during perimenopause and menopause, and how we can make this transition one to be celebrated rather than feared.

Join Shelley for episode #9 of The Aging Project Podcast, as she chats to Peta about:

  •  The signs of perimenopause
  •  The difference between perimenopause and menopause
  •  How she’s helping women reframe their thinking about perimenopause and menopause, and how it can be a time of powerful transition
  •  Why she wants women to understand and celebrate their bodies
  •  How our periods can be signposts for underlying health issues
  •  What happens in our bodies as we progress through perimenopause to menopause
  •  How the contraceptive pill can impact our experience of perimenopause
  •  What happens to desire and sex drive during perimenopause and menopause
  •  What she wants all women in their forties to start doing
  •  Why perimenopause can be the ‘tap on the shoulder’ that we all need
  •  Why post-menopausal weight gain can be a good thing
  •  Lifestyle changes that can give you a smoother ride through perimenopause
  •  The role of hormone testing in managing symptoms of perimenopause
  •  Her thoughts on hormone replacement therapy (HRT)

The Aging Project is on a mission to discover and share the secrets to aging well, and to empower you to make great choices for your health and wellbeing in your forties and beyond. Hosted by Shelley Craft, The Aging Project Podcast will introduce you to the leading minds in the field of aging fabulously.
