Our free health articles cover a different women's health issue each month and may be reprinted in your organisation's newsletter, blog or website at no cost. Here are this month's topics...

Menopause in the new millennium

Menopause was once a life stage of secrecy and mystery – whispered 'women's-only' business – but thanks to more research and greater awareness, today's midlife women can have a different experience to those of previous generations.

Midlife weight gain: what's really going on

For many women, the menopause years are often met with physical, emotional and mental changes. And often, just as you are navigating the tricky symptoms of hot flushes, night sweats or increased anxiety levels, you are visited by another unwelcome surprise: weight gain.

Guidelines for using free health articles

If you do need to make any cuts or other edits, we ask that you please email Jo Roberts, Health Content Manager at [email protected], a final copy before publication. The reason for this is that we carefully review all information and, as you will appreciate, it is easy for information to be taken out of context and meanings changed or compromised.

These guidelines are designed to give organisations clear direction in using agreed-upon information written by Jean Hailes for Women's Health. Jean Hailes makes these women's health articles available to various organisations, including health and community groups, for publication online and in newsletters for non-commercial, nonprofit, educational purposes only.

In line with Australian copyright laws, we require that you acknowledge the articles to Jean Hailes as follows:

We would also appreciate if you would include our website address jeanhailes.org.au and our tollfree telephone number 1800 JEAN HAILES (532 642) for women seeking further health information, as shown in each document.
