She believes that sensitive and patient-centred care during the menopausal transition can have an incredible impact on a woman’s quality of life.

DR REBECCA CECE

“20% of women experience menopausal symptoms that significantly impact their lives. Unfortunately there are many misconceptions about HRT and non hormonal treatments for menopause. There are also a number of barriers for women in accessing up to date evidence-based treatments for menopause, including their geographical location. It is highly rewarding to help women navigate the unique health needs that they have around menopause, and a Telehealth platform is a fantastic way to reach them no matter where they are located. I am passionate about providing an empathetic, safe space in which you can discuss all things menopause and I’m committed to help find the treatment best suited to you!”

Rebecca is a GP in Brisbane specialising in Women’s Health. She completed medical school in Adelaide before returning to Brisbane. She completed  a Diploma of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital in 2018.

This prompted Krishna to actively seek further education in this field and to join the Australian Menopause Society. She is passionate about using this knowledge to help other women.
