LifeStage Health : Women's Health

Supporting the needs of women throughout life's natural stages.

WPA LifeStage Health : Women's Health

Across the life stages

During a woman's life there are three key stages of her reproductive cycle where the body goes through changes. For some, this can lead to physical and mental challenges that impact their wellbeing, their families and their careers.

Lifestage Health has been designed to support women throughout their natural, and somewhat predictable, menstrual cycle during the course of their lives.

Raising awareness and knowledge increases wellbeing and helps prevent those conditions that are avoidable. Whilst some women do not require support, others would benefit from reassurance and, where something is out of the ordinary, early diagnosis is vital.

An expert's view…

Lauren Chiren, CEO of Women of a Certain Stage, immediately saw the benefit of LifeStage Health as:

“helping companies attract and retain women of all ages, increase attendance, engagement and productivity as well as ensure women feel supported and psychologically safe to ask for the help and support they need without fear of stigma or being seen as weak or vulnerable.

She continues, “LifeStage Health is raising awareness of female issues, correcting unconscious bias and breaking down the workplace taboos around these issues. WPA is helping companies make a commitment to all female employees that life's natural challenges can be supported and helped indeed, this is a proposition that will be equally valued by companies and women.”
