The Global Midwife with Sarah Nkansah BOATENG: Your reproductive health needs the centre-stage


“Women are the driving force of every economy; therefore, they need to be well to do well.” This statement encapsulates the profound impact that women have on society’s economic and social fabric. Yet, amid the hustle and bustle of daily life, the well-being of women, particularly their reproductive health, is often overlooked.

The whole totality of a woman’s well-being is significantly influenced by her reproductive health, particularly her hormones.

Whether it’s her physical, psychological, economic or mental health, the state of her reproductive health plays a pivotal role. She can either be at her optimum, thriving in all aspects of her life, or find herself flat on the floor, struggling to keep up with the demands of daily life.

That can be demanding, draining and frustrating, especially when you do not get the needed support to help you navigate through it. Lack of knowledge usually also serves as a platform for misleading outcomes, building up fear and anxiety.
