Chiswick’s Mummy MOT Adds a New Practitioner

After some much needed R&R over Christmas my team and I are starting 2017 with all sorts of exciting new plans and projects and I can’t wait to get cracking.

thanks to you all for a wonderful experience and particularly to Maria and Jenny
for sharing their wisdom, experience and expertise.
I hope we can all now stay connected and continue learning and sharing.”

Running shorts to feel safe in – from leaks that is!

Amazing weekend in Walsall, Birmingham at the Women's Health Summit organised by Gerard Greene and Michelle Lyons.

It was great to meet Yvonne, founder of EVB Shorts and to find out an intriguing new way on handling exercise / running incontinence. An engineer by background, Yvonne won the BBC2s Dragon's Den last year, 2014 for her EVB Sport Shorts.
