Who Are We?
The WombCare Virtual Clinic is dedicated to providing culturally sensitive pelvic and women’s health care throughout one’s life course. We want to break the silence around key women’s health issues such as menstruation, uterine fibroids, PCOS, endometriosis, pelvic pain, incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, pre-natal/postpartum support, and menopause. Addressing these common reproductive issues are crucial for all people, especially marginalized communities who lack access to qualified healthcare professionals. Our culturally sensitive and compassionate team has advanced skills in pelvic health management, nutrition, exercise therapy, and psychoeducation. Our team consists of a kinesiologist, pelvic health physiotherapist, naturopathic doctor, and social worker who are ready to take care of all your pelvic health needs. Together, we want to provide you with hope, healing, and the best support along your journey.
