Being a Menopause Champion with Barbara Hamilton Bruce

Peri Menopause Power

In this week's episode we have an incredibly impactful conversation with Barbara Hamilton-Bruce. Barbara is head of client and business operations at Simmons & Simmons Solutions Limited, an international law firm based in the UK. And Barbara has been pivotal in bringing Menopause awareness and education to her workplace in the UK.  Barbara gets deeply personal about her own experience of starting Peri Menopause at the age of 40 not long after the birth of her second child. She talks openly about her symptoms and shares how her one attempt to bring her experience up with her workplace did not end as she had hoped.  Barbara is a woman on a mission to champion Menopause conversations and awareness and she is a wealth of knowledge and experience when starting the conversation in the workplace. We had a little chuckle after recording about the release of this episode being dropped on Halloween. If you do not know the history (an episode will come on this) we were often considered witches in our older years back in the day.   If Starting the Conversation in your workplace is something you would like to start in your workplace, you can learn more about our programs and workshops through this page on our website.

Ep. 227 The Pregnant Interventionalist: with Dr Barbara Hamilton and Dr Aarti Luhar

BackTable Vascular & Interventional

Host Aparna Baheti interviews Barbara Hamilton and Aarti Luhar about navigating training and early career during a pregnancy. They discuss factors to consider such as scheduling, parental leave policies, radiation exposure risks, and childcare.---CHECK OUT OUR SPONSORSAthletic Greenshttps://www.athleticgreens.com/backtableviMedtronic Abre Venous Stenthttps://www.medtronic.com/abrevenous---SHOW NOTESOur guests start by sharing their paths to motherhood. Dr. Luhar was pregnant as a diagnostic radiology trainee, while Dr. Hamilton was pregnant as an attending. We talk about the benefits of being part of a large department or group during maternity leave, due to more flexibility of scheduling changes and availability of coverage. Both of our guests recommend that IRs reach out to their HR departments as soon as they feel comfortable sharing their pregnancy news. Establishing contact with the department is a helpful way to clarify parental leave policies, specifically if one qualifies for parental leave and how long the leave can be. Additionally, Dr. Luhar encourages listeners to reach out to colleagues who have been pregnant before, since they can be a valuable resource for insights on the granular details of practicing IR while pregnant.In terms of radiation as an occupational exposure, Dr. Hamilton did not change her caseload during pregnancy. She shares her preference to wear extra radiation protection around her waist. Dr. Luhar reached out to her hospital’s radiation physicist for guidance. She received the advice to use standard radiation protection and follow the principle of ALARA (as low as reasonably achievable). Additionally, we discuss the risks of pathogen exposure and needle sticks. Both doctors agree that having supportive staff and colleagues can make the pregnancy process more manageable.Additionally, we discuss unexpected challenges during pregnancy. Dr. Hamilton describes her experience with the risk of premature labor and bedrest. Dr. Luhar recounts the struggle of scheduling prenatal appointments and dealing with pregnancy complications while working a full caseload. We close the episode by giving advice for evaluating the culture of your work environment, relying on support systems that are in place, and not being afraid to ask important questions.---RESOURCESDr. Barbara Hamilton Twitter:@TSuperheroineDr. Barbara Hamilton Instagram:@TiredSuperheroineSIR Pregnancy Toolkit:https://www.sirweb.org/practice-resources/toolkits/pregnancy-toolkit/
