The Myths of Menopause 
with the Female GP: Dr Samantha Newman

Dr Samantha Newman (MBChB BSc (hons) DipOMG) is a GP with a special interest in Menopause. 

Understand the hormonal changes in women that can begin in your 30s. Find out who to ask and what to ask, be part of your village. 

​Women have health conditions related to all stages of life. These are significantly affected by hormones which also change throughout life. Dr Samantha Newman applies a western medical approach looking at women as a whole.​

We are not static. Things change in our bodies, minds and situations month to month, and year to year. Health is influenced by physical health and mental health. She brings these two concepts together to help you move forward. She empowers women to decide what is best for them, by giving informed choices in both oral and written forms, and time. Time to listen, time to ask questions and time for all of us to put things together and make an individualised plan.

Content includes:

  • An overview of the hormonal changes in women that can begin in your 30s

  • Finding out what medical and non-medical options are available to you – and who to contact for help

  • Becoming part of your village - you are not alone!
