Abu Dhabi: Al Bandar Welcomes New Women's Wellness Clinic

In Abu Dhabi, a groundbreaking wellness clinic has emerged to confront the complexities of menopause head-on. Laha Wellness Hub, situated within HealthPlus Family Clinic at Al Bandar and spearheaded by M42, is tailored to cater to the needs of women aged 35 and above grappling with the challenges of perimenopause and menopause.

Menopause, a natural phase marking the conclusion of a woman's reproductive years, typically occurs between the ages of 45 and 55. However, the transitional phase, known as perimenopause, can extend for several years or even a decade before menopause sets in. The World Health Organization underscores the disruptive nature of perimenopausal and postmenopausal symptoms, which can profoundly impact personal and professional spheres, ultimately influencing women's health as they age.

Hasan Jasem Al Nowais, Managing Director and Group CEO of M42, envisions the clinic as more than just a medical facility, but as a community hub and support network for women. By addressing often-taboo topics surrounding women's health, such as perimenopause and menopause, the clinic aims to empower women to navigate this life stage with confidence, thereby fostering a healthier and more equitable future.

The physiological changes accompanying menopause can manifest in a myriad of ways, impacting not only physical health but also emotional, mental, and social well-being. Symptoms range from headaches and fatigue to hot flushes, night sweats, and changes in menstrual patterns, culminating in menstruation cessation. Additionally, women may experience vaginal dryness, sexual discomfort, urinary incontinence, insomnia, and mood disturbances.

Dr. Neha Gami, an esteemed obstetrics and gynecology consultant at HealthPlus Family Clinic, stresses the clinic's pivotal role in addressing the underserved needs of women, particularly concerning menopause. By providing specialized preventive care and educational resources, the Laha Wellness Hub ensures that every woman's well-being remains a priority.

Donna Howarth, the founder of the Middle East Menopause Organization, hails the clinic's opening as a monumental step toward reshaping the menopause landscape in the UAE. She underscores the significance of offering diverse approaches and options to empower women to make informed decisions while destigmatizing menopause through open dialogue.

Recognizing the profound impact of menopause on female employees, M42 implements a progressive half-day leave policy to support staff members through this transitional phase and promote gender equity. Suaad Al Hammadi, Group Chief Human Capital Officer at M42, underscores the need to acknowledge and address the far-reaching implications of menopause in the workplace, where more than 60% of the workforce comprises women. Through such initiatives, M42 reaffirms its commitment to championing women's health and well-being, paving the way for a more inclusive and supportive work environment.
