BOMA-TT hosted an insightful discussion online on the topic of perimenopause on September 10. Many women are not fully aware of what this phase in life is or when it comes about, yet this period of a woman’s life can have multiple effects on her life.
The ‘Woman Talk: What is Perimenopause?’ online session began with videos from the Archdiocesan Family Life Commission (AFLC) on the Rite of Christian Relationship in the domestic Church. BOMA-TT Coordinator Pauline Phelps then honoured the Trinidad and Tobago Psychologists’ Association’s call for lighting a candle at 8 p.m. in commemoration of World Suicide Prevention Day. She provided an overview of what perimenopause is and concluded with a feature guest.
We were very fortunate to have had a live discussion with Dr Monique Ruberu, Obstetrician/Gynaecologist from the USA, who willingly addressed this topic and the questions that came after her talk.
