Our customers say

Julia Peters Belk, MSK & Women's Health Specialist, Mummy MOT & POGP

I’m a certified Mummy MOT practitioner based at our Bushey clinic, with extensive experience and training in Pilates, rehabilitation, acupuncture and manual therapy. I enjoy supporting women at all stages in their lives, addressing their specific needs and achieving their goals however large or small. After the birth of my two children, I felt strongly about advocating the importance of Women’s Health and encouraging women to seek out specialist help for issues such as tummy gap, pelvic or back pain, and urinary urgency or incontinence.

Aftercare for mums is often not as extensive as it should be. Many women are not made aware of the issues surrounding abdominal and pelvic floor muscle weakness following pregnancy. These weaknesses can often lead to further issues if they are not assessed and treated. Many women also learn to get by with conditions such as incontinence and sexual dysfunction after having a baby. I’m passionate about raising awareness around Women’s Health in the hope that with more knowledge on the subject matter, more women will seek help, and fewer women will suffer in silence.
