Jessica Joubert – Occupational Therapist

Jess Joubert graduated with a B. Occupational Therapy with distinction in 2020 from the University of Pretoria. “I am originally from Johannesburg but am currently working in the rural Eastern Cape. I love the entire scope of OT but have a special interest in paediatric neurology.

I have completed short courses in the neurodevelopmental supportive care of the preterm infant as well as neuro anatomy which assist me in working with children and families to ensure optimal child development.

I chose occupational therapy as I wanted to be in a position where I am able to form meaningful relationships with families and children and be a part of their journey to fulfilling their potential. I look forward to journeying with you all and sharing my expertise on all thing’s child development!”.

Hi! My name is Dr Caitlyn Bauer, and I’m a Registered Chiropractor with a special interest in pregnancy and paediatrics.

I’ve always enjoyed treating pregnant ladies and babies, but my own recent journey into motherhood has reignited my passion and highlighted the need for supporting new moms during their postpartum period, which can feel incredible and exciting, but also scary and lonely.

I have been fortunate enough to have the most incredible support system and I am so excited to join this team and play a part in sharing what I’ve learnt to support you in this amazing journey, as a fellow mom and holistic healthcare professional

Melanie Frost – Pregnancy Treatment Specialist

After qualifying with my international and South African diploma in Health & Skincare, I quickly developed a fiery passion for education and more specifically, specializing in the amazing pregnancy treatment world. This passion was fueled by a desire to ensure treatment excellence for moms-under-construction, and that our therapist community is being trained at the highest standards to ensure treatment excellence. One of my favourite quotes is “Knowledge is power….. but Knowledge shared is power multiplied” I believe in not only empowering our therapist community but also our mamas out there, so they can make educated choices when it comes to safe and effective pregnancy treatments throughout their incredible nine month and beyond journey.

Tracey Clark – Skincare Expert

Tracey Clark is an internationally qualified Somatologist. “Skincare and skin health is my absolute passion. My journey in the professional skin care industry started with my studies commencing in 1992 where I subsequently stayed on becoming a senior lecturer for over 10 years. My years studying and lecturing with some of the most well- known experts in the industry is what has made me who and what I am today. As a very young adult I had acne and endometriosis and at the time there was no professional guidance available on how to best treat my skin. The impact hormonal imbalance, endometriosis and fertility treatments had on my skin has left me passionate about helping others. Helping other woman understand the changes in their skin and giving sound professional advice on how to best
treat it”.

Tracey’s passion for skincare comes from a very personal place and her success in this field is backed by her personal experience. We can say that Tracey walks her talk, with confidence!
