Your trusted online space to learn about perimenopause and menopause feeling prepared and supported.

We all need the “What's happening to my body?” talk — just like we needed it at puberty.

That said, our current healthcare system does not do a good job of educating or supporting people as they navigate the expected biological process of hormonal change.

Pausology’s mission is to change that reality. 

Created by experienced healthcare providers, Dr. Claudia Levine and Nurse Practitioner Kate MacLaughlin, it offers education, vetted resources, and community to help you get informed and feel prepared and supported as you navigate the road of perimenopause into menopause and beyond.

Whether hormonal change is on the horizon, you’re in the thick of it, or you’re on the other side, Pausology is here for you. 

You are not alone! There are literally millions of us going through it right now.

Welcome to our Menoposse!

MENOPOSSE ™ noun) men-o-pos-se: A circle of support, connection, and shared resources around the experience of perimenopause and menopause.

Hi! We’re Claudia & Kate, the founders of Pausology.

The idea for Pausology came from our experience of feeling caught off guard by perimenopause. Despite what we thought we knew as experienced healthcare providers, we realized it wasn’t enough. 

So we dove deep into the scientific research, medical literature, and the rabbit hole of internet searches. We engaged in conversation and piloted workshops with a large and diverse group of people in all stages of hormonal change. We listened as they shared what they needed and wanted regarding education, resources, and support. 

Pausology was designed with all of that in mind.

We have no financial ties to what we recommend. What we share in this course is the same information we provide to our patients in our clinical practice. 

We can’t wait to meet you!

Warmly, no pun intended ;)
