Couldn’t recommend this event enough. I attended last year and came away with so much more than I’d expected. Learned so much from the experts on the day and got to connect with an amazing group of people in the audience and share in their stories. Came away feeling empowered!

The Menopause Summit was an extraordinary event that seamlessly blended expert insights, and empowering discussions. From cutting-edge medical theory to practical tips, to some comic relief, every session was a wealth of knowledge, leaving attendees equipped with a newfound understanding of menopause and making it ok to talk about it! The event's organization was impeccable, fostering a warm atmosphere where women could share experiences and embark on a transformative journey together. Huge credit to BestinFest for orchestrating a summit that not only demystified menopause but also celebrated the strength and resilience of women.

I went to the summit in Cork in October 2023. The content was fantastic and the speakers were so engaging and interesting. I particularly enjoyed the work related and employment law elements as I work in HR so this was particularly relevant for me. It was a really inspiring and invigorating day and to be surrounded by such inspiring women, all experts in their fields, was a hugely enjoyable and satisfying experience. There should be more events highlighting womens health issues taking place. We owe to the young women coming up behind us.

What a wonderful inspirational day. I have learned so much and more importantly I no longer feel alone. I finally understand what is happening to me during my perimenopause and now have the information and tools on how to manage it . I highly recommend attending this event . I feel it is essential for my knowledge and wellbeing.Thank you so much to the organisers for bringing together such amazing experts and opening the discussion on menopause. I can’t wait to find out more in April at the next menopause summit .

This summit is life challenging! Having struggled through the menopause and being fearful of HRT this summit provided an accessible and informative format to enable me to access all the necessary information from the experts in the field. Also listening to real women telling their stories was both Challenging but ultimately empowering. This summit has literally changed my life and that's not an understatement, I feel like I have gotten my life back and my hope is that no woman suffers as I did, unesscessarily so! Being educated by experts in this summit and being supported and surrounded by real women was a unique aspect of this summit and one I am forever grateful forever 🙏 If anyone is struggling with Menopause or perimenopause, please please attend this summit, educate and empower yourself with the people who know! It's worth it, you are worth it!

I was lucky enough to attend the Dublin Menopause summit. Excited about potential discussions and prepared to learn as much as I possibly could regarding my menopause. To say it was a great day is an understatement! All of the speakers covered everything and more than I could have imagined. The atmosphere in the auditorium was electric and the energy amongst all of us (the audience) was warm and supportive. A glass of Prosecco after the event was a lovely touch, many chats with new friends and speakers was a lovely end to a wonderful day! Thank you.

The summit was an amazing, well organised, fun, well informed day. It had a bit of everything & the hosts were amazing, well done to them for getting such fantastic guests. Ireland needs more of these summits to inform not only women but men too.

The Versatile Flat Shoe Style That’s Probably Missing From Your Wardrobe

The only parenting book I read before my almost-four-year-old son Leo was born was Pamela Druckerman’s 2012 Bringing up Bébé. As an American transplant raising kids in France, Druckerman observed that the French child is not the sun in the familial solar system. I prepared myself to nurture and prune a bien-élevé (well-mannered) toddler—the kind that wears smocked Liberty print dresses, sits and colors, and eats braised endives while her parents hold forth about a new podcast. The book’s thesis and the key to a civilized French household: the parents are in charge, not the children. “C’est moi qui décide,” is the French mother’s last word to her obstreperous child.

I thought of Druckerman’s credo several years ago when I accompanied a friend and her two-and-half-year-old to get ice cream. “He only likes strawberry,” my friend told the teenager behind the counter. “And it cannot contain seeds.” This part, my friend repeated in the sort of non-negotiable tone that a pop star’s tour manager might demand the absence of carnations from a dressing room flower arrangement. Obviously ill-versed in the toddler mood-swing, the teenager informed us there was no more seedless strawberry ice cream to be had. Gamely, if naively, she suggested strawberry frozen yogurt that would be made on the spot with actual strawberries —!!!—and their seeds. Reluctantly, my friend agreed, and then proceeded to meticulously de-seed every spoonful as her son suspiciously appraised her efforts. As I watched, I thought of all of those French children surely quietly, gratefully, tucking into bowlfuls of seed-ed cassis sorbet, and I smugly told myself—with the superiority of the childless—that I would never be one of those mothers who tend slavishly to the demands of their offspring.

Day saying great fish unto first set which very.

Then I had Leo. And I have been his butler (I mean mother) for almost 4 years. To my relief, he is all for a seeded ice cream, which is not to say that he does not have other, let’s call them, eccentricities. It occurred to me that things might be taking a problematic turn when Leo was about two, and I found myself carrying a breakfast tray upstairs so that he might enjoy a morning bed picnic. He sat in my bed in his pajamas, reclining against more pillows than you’d find in a guest bedroom in a Nancy Meyers movie. I had long nurtured a Downton Abbey fantasy, but here I was, cast in the wrong role.

Master Leo just needs a little bell!

But he already has one: at about 18 months, I’d attached a plush musical pull-toy to the edge of his crib. Instead of playing it before going to sleep, Leo took to yanking on the string—prompting a Brahms’ lullaby to sound—upon rising from his nap, ostensibly ringing for service. “I’d like water!” he’d say. As I’d scurry downstairs, he’d call out, refining his order: “Freezing cold!” Now, whenever I hear Brahms, I feel a Pavlovian urge to leap to my feet and beeline to his side, like a flight attendant heading towards a first-class passenger who’s just buzzed for beverage service.
