Part of: THIS WEEKEND: Storyhouse Women

In this part talk, part workshop hear from midwife Samantha Bull as she presents her knowledge about how, since the rise of HRT, Western society has perceived menopause as a condition or disease that requires treatment.

Sam will give the audience an opportunity to discuss their experience and also learn how Eastern society views women at this stage in their life.

There will also be the opportunity to take part in a guided massage, relaxation and meditation using affirmations.

Sam has a passion to delve into the power and wisdom of being a woman, the menstrual cycle, honouring and listening to the body and womb healing and fertility massage.

With her business With Woman Therapies (, she provides a safe space for women to discuss their private battles with menstrual disease, infertility, miscarriage and baby loss, anxiety and depression, and much more.

Please note you will not be required to lie down or remove clothing in order to take part in the workshop.


Sam will also be offering Womb Healing & Fertility Massage Taster Sessions after this workshop. Find out more here.
