Queen Menopause: Finding your majesty in the mayhem

Jul 4, 2022

Episode 42 sees Mel and Trish chatting to the girl everyone wanted to be growing up, Alison Brahe Daddo about life and her book Queen Menopause: Finding the majesty in the mayhem.

Alison Brahe was a household name, the girl we all saw on the cover of Dolly, Cosmopolitan and Cleo magazines throughout the 80s and 90s who then went on to marry Australia’s most eligible bachelor, Cameron Daddo. Fast forward 25+ years and 50isher Alison, or Ali, would be facing the same challenges most women do as they navigate through the mind field of changes that accompany perimenopause and menopause.

It was this journey of self-discovery that compelled her to write Queen Menopause: Finding your majesty in the mayhem. The book combines research on different modalities and treatment options along with word-for-word entries from her private journals and learnings shared by other women.

This chat reveals Ali is not just a pretty face, nor a wife and mother to three children. She is a screenwriter, podcaster, teacher and more. She has faced some enormous challenges and celebrated some amazing highs during her life in the public eye.

Enjoy the delightful and very grounded Ali Brahe Daddo.
