Meet Heather Hirsch – Menopause

Dr. Heather Hirsch is a leading women’s mid-life and menopause expert in private practice, and author of Unlock Your Menopause Type. She was recently interviewed by Oprah Winfrey for The Life You Want series on OprahDaily.com which included a panel conversation on menopause with Gayle King, Maria Shriver, Drew Barrymore, plus a renowned gynecologist and therapist.

Dr. Hirsch is known for helping women in menopause go from feeling confused and frustrated to feeling symptom-free, empowered, and educated. She’s one out of a handful of national leaders who’s treated and helped counsel thousands of women experiencing menopause. This means women 35 and over with bothersome hormonal symptoms like hair loss, low libido, painful sex, night sweats and host flashes. Dr. Hirsch does so by successfully myth busting all things midlife and hormone replacement therapy.


Board certified in internal medicine, Dr. Hirsch is the founder of the Menopause and Midlife Clinic at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, and is on the medical advisory board at Midi Health Virtual Care Clinic. Her passion to fill in the gaps in women’s healthcare has led her to become one of the most sought-after clinicians, consultants, and educators on all midlife women’s health topics.


Dr. Hirsch always knew that she wanted to care for women. As the oldest of three girls and the firstborn to a strong-willed mother with an OB/GYN for a grandfather, her career path into women’s health was always her destiny. While building two successful menopause practices, Dr. Hirsch also held national positions in the North American Menopause Society and the Internal Society for the Study of Women’s Sexual Health .

She teaches about midlife women’s topics at the regional and national level, publishes research, and serves as a medical journal editor. Heather also sits on numerous scientific advisory boards, and volunteers at  Healthy Woman and The Body Agency.

Dr. Hirsch’s expert knowledge and public speaking skills are highlighted by her successful social media presence, including her strong YouTube Channel filled with helpful tips on navigating menopause. She also hosts her Podcast Health By Heather Hirsch.

She’s been a guest expert on RadioMD and Harvard business Review and has been interviewed about the impacts of menopause for Forbes, Harvard Women’s Health Watch, Instyle magazine, Listen NotesWomen’s Health Magazine, Fox News, and numerous interviews with Health Central.
