“Apparently There’s a Pre-Game to Menopause” with Omisade Burney-Scott
Meet Omisade (Omi) Burney-Scott, founder of the multimedia project, Black Girl’s Guide to Surviving Menopause. Omi is a Black Southern 7th generation native North Carolinian feminist, mother and healer. She uses her platform to uplift stories of Black women, femmes, nonbinary, and trans people navigating menopause through the Black Girl’s Guide to Menopause podcast, zines, and intergenerational dialogues.
In this episode, she talks about her experience learning about perimenopause after getting pregnant with her second child and how her clinical depression and anxiety were linked to menopause. Join Robin, Christine, and Omi as they discuss being dismissed by care providers, and experiencing changes in mood, libido, hot flashes, night sweats, and brain fog. Omi also talks about tightening her BS meter as she’s gotten older, and creating sacred spaces for Black women to share their stories.
