At the age of 41, Rachel Lankester decided to take menopause by the ovaries and do it HER way. When trying for another child, Rachel found out she was actually mid-menopause and after spending time in deep soul searching, decided she was going to turn mid-life on its head and make it cool again!
In this episode, TTJ(es) have so much fun talking with Rachel about what menopause CAN look like: it doesn't have to signal the end, but can be a kick-ass start to a whole new you! Rachel shares her own experience and excitement about the possibilities that come with moving away from nurturing everyone else when your estrogen nosedives, and the creativity that is possible when we allow ourselves to take on the role of a Leader instead of a Breeder.
Helpful advice about lubricant, vibrators and self-pleasuring are just some of the recommendations Rachel brings with her wealth of knowledge on this episode of We Should Talk About That!
