Yes You Can: Dr. Barb’s Recipe for Lifelong Intimacy
Welcome to The Nancy Ferrari Show! In this episode, the viewer is introduced to featured guest, Dr. Barb DePree. She is a gynecologist in practice for over 25 years, specializing in midlife women’s health and intimacy. She is certified through the North American Menopause Society as a provider. In addition, she was named the 2013 NAMS Certified Menopause Provider of the year. Finally, Sharecare named her as a Top 10 Social Health-maker for Menopause in September of 2013.
Finding that products helpful to her patients’ sexual health were not readily available, Dr. DePree founded MiddlesexMD.com.
The website was created to share practice-tested, clinically sound information and products for women. This includes guidance for working with partners and caregivers. In addition, Dr. DePree also publishes regularly on her own blog, providing updates on research in women’s sexual health, as well as observations and advice based on her work with women in her practice. Furthermore, she is a frequent spokesperson for women’s sexual health, quoted in Self, Everyday Health, and Huffington Post, among others, and has been interviewed for radio, television, and documentaries.
Dr. DePree is here to share more about her book “Yes You Can: Dr. Barb’s Recipe for Lifelong Intimacy”, which tells the real stories of Dr. Barb’s patients. In addition, she also shares the challenges they have faced, not only with menopause but due to other health conditions as well, such as arthritis, cancer and hormonal changes…how it can impact sexual desire. She provides sound, reassuring, medically proven advice and frank, unblushing discussions of topics that affect the quality of life for so many women today.
Dr. DePree shares more about the need to keep women engaged in their continued sexuality, especially pertaining to becoming menopausal and aging.
It is well understood that sexuality adds a great deal to quality of life, including physical and mental health, but how we actively maintain, or in some cases, regain sexual health.
Our conversation focused on the need for connection and intimacy within our relationships. Because it is through communication that a healthy sex life can be maintained throughout all phases of our female adult life. Also, when we as women pay attention to our physical, emotional and spiritual aspects, it enhances our sexuality. This is something she encourages nurturing of ourselves with… self-love.
Finally, women at every age need sex to be intimate; especially needing to mindfully create and reinforce a real connection.
Most noteworthy words of praise: “Sound, reassuring, medically approved advice and frank, unblushing discussions of topics that affect so many women”
