Presenters Bio:

Breeda Bermingham is a social entrepreneur, founder of the MidlifeWomen Rock Project and Cafes (2019). She is on a mission to disruptthe way menopause has been constructed for decades and spotlightthe opportunities, second chances, access to deep creativity, personalgrowth, self-actualization, courage, and confidence that are allavailable to women, once supported at Midlife.Having worked with women for years as a midwife and public health nurse, Breeda returned to fulltime education completing a psychology degree in 2018 followed by a sociology masters in 2020.Herresearch interest is Midlife Women, Menopause and Leadership.

Perplexed by the massive lack ofeducation and information she set up the Midlife Women Rock cafes in 2019 in Ireland to gatherwomen in safe spaces to discuss menopause and share stories.
