The first workplace menopause cafe in Wales has been launched by Velindre University NHS Trust.
Open to staff of all ages and genders, visitors to the cafe at the Welsh Blood Service in Pontyclun are encouraged to talk about the menopause, share their stories, and ask questions.
Organisers hope the cafe and the discussions had will help remove some of the stigma around the menopause.
Karen Wright, Assistant Director of Workforce at Velindre University NHS Trust, says workplaces can no longer ignore or allow colleagues experiencing the menopause to suffer in silence.
Health Secretary Vaughan Gething has backed the project, calling himself a "strong advocate" of the idea.
