This is a first step into a larger project that we are developing with partners – provisionally titled ‘Female Hormone Project’ We want to research what is lacking in current resources for women going through hormonal changes, and look at what kind of information and support would help fill those gaps.
This project is being developed with Bridget Hargreaves, who has recently joined Kettle Partnership as a director.
Hormones affect women in three particular stages: Puberty, childbirth, menopause – and throughout each woman’s lifetime there is the constant of the menstrual cycle. Although hormones are affecting women on a daily basis; it can be difficult to find relevant information about their impact and many women are still not aware of the different medical checks and support services that they can access.
We are developing a project that will disseminate information and create debate on issues related to female hormones using creative engagement ideas to connect and help support women in London.
Ultimately, we aim to develop an digital platform for women of all ages to use, to help women – and girls – to diarise their hormonal fluctuations and corresponding physical and emotional changes.
If you are interested in finding out more about Female Hormones, join in on the #hormonehour this Friday and you can ask Dr Michael Craig (Head of the Female Hormone Clinic) and Mike Marsh, consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist at King’s College Hospital, London.
Please do get in touch at any time if you are interested in talking to us about this project.
