Reference Library

The aim of the NZ Early Menopause Support Group reference library is to help give members access to as much information as possible because your long term physical and emotional health will benefit from access to a wide range of resources.

We do not advocate any particular way of managing your symptoms or looking after your long term health, but we do strongly urge you to research your options fully and always discuss treatment options with your medical practitioner.

To follow is the list of books currently available. If you would like to borrow one, please use our contact form for more information.

Alternatively, you can purchase many of these books from, Australasia’s local online store. Every book bought through a link from our site returns a small investment to this support group and helps us maintain our library.
