‘… Menopause Cafe. Genius! In a world that is full of disconnection this was a perfect tonic. Loving the conversations and the sense of community’

Sam Bunch, attendee 

The menopause cafe idea was started by a group of women in Perth, Scotland who wanted to meet together to drink coffee, eat cake and discuss the menopause. Their aim was to create a safe, relaxed space for women and men of all ages to discuss the issues surrounding the menopause - no sales, no profit, just a community of people having relevant discussions. 

Two Ducks has been given the go ahead to start a menopause cafe event in our shop in Woking, Surrey, and we are really excited about hosting it. 

We will be hosting a cafe once a month, the first one will be an evening event, the second a lunchtime and so on, to enable as many people to attend as would like to.

The event is totally free, we would just appreciate if could support us with the purchase of a tea, coffee and/or cake! ☕️🧁

In addition to the menopause cafe , we aim to have a wonderful guest speaker at each event. Our first guest speaker is a real gem - Katie Philips - Founder, The School of self love.

If you listen to your body when it whispers, it won’t need to scream’ — Heather Sophia Gordon Athié, Caluna Wellness.

We are delighted to announce that for March’s menopause event, we have guest speaker Rebekah Brown, Founder of artisan supplement company MPowder. 

MPowder is the world’s first plant-based supplement powder range crafted to target the three distinct biochemical stages of the menopause.

Their recipes use only plant based nutrients, botanical extracts and vitamin sources to give our bodies what they need through the three stages of menopause. 

Rebekah will lead us in a ‘Hormone House Party’ which will provide a whistle stop tour through the menopause lifestage; demystifying the symptoms through an exploration of the biochemistry and pausing to discuss individual concerns, experiences and share the evidence of what works. How fab is that?

As if that wasn’t exciting enough, we also have Rhian and Lou from Essence Garden Studio in St.Johns. Rhian and Lou are an expert team teaching yoga and pilates from their studio down the road. They will be leading us in 20 minutes of yoga Nidra (yoga sleep), to relax us at the end of the menopause cafe session, ready for a fabulous nights sleep.
