Health & Her products

Health & Her was set up to improve lives of millions of women around the world living with life-affecting symptoms of perimenopause, menopause and postmenopause'. Their self-care products have changed the way women approach the menopause and find solutions to improve their experience.

The company’s award-winning menopause health hub empowers women to manage their symptoms by providing cutting edge products, leading expert advice and clinically novel insights via an ecommerce website and an app. They offer a free online menopause symptom tool and tracker along with qualified and expert information on the menopause from the UK’s top experts.

What people are saying

The research we’ve done with women has helped us understand just how complex menopause experiences and symptoms can be. It’s really important that we constantly change and improve by listening to the women we serve. It’s about finding the best ways to reach all women and making products and services more accessible.

In a world of ever-changing communication methods and media trends, we need to make it really easy for women to find, use and feel supported by what we have to offer. This latest funding now means that we can scale-up with the help of the Development Bank as our long-term equity partner.  Their ongoing support has been critical to our growth. We’re delighted to have them on the journey with us.
