A clinic dedicated to women’s health has opened in Devon, enabling women to take control of their wellbeing. Created by a team of experienced female doctors, Myla Health is committed to helping women with the full spectrum of symptoms experienced during perimenopause and menopause, as well as other challenging hormonal issues.
Created by Dr Olivia Hum and Dr Zoe Schaedel, Myla Health offers patients expertise and personal care, supporting women to feel healthy and happy. With established clinics in Sussex, Kent and Sheffield, the latest clinic in Exeter is headed up by Dr Rebecca Walker, a highly experienced GP specialising in menopause care, headaches and migraines. “I am passionate about empowering women who are navigating the challenges of menopause through compassionate, holistic, and individualised care”, comments Dr Walker.
The Exeter clinic has been set-up to offer professional support for women on all aspects of the menopause, from looking after recognisable symptoms such as hot flushes, anxiety, brain fog and sleep problems to less well- known ones, like worsening migraine, problems with low sex drive and change in vulvovaginal health.
“Women in the West Country have limited access to specialist menopause care, and there is no NHS service at present,” comments Dr Walker. “We support women to find the right hormone replacement therapy to suit them, but also provide expert guidance on the alternative therapies for those who do not want hormone therapy for their menopause transition, or who have been advised that it is not the best treatment for them.”
Alongside the expertise offered, one of the vital benefits of seeking support from Myla Health is the time devoted to each patient and the continuity of care offered. The specialist doctors are dedicated to gaining a full understanding of each patient’s concerns with a deep exploration of symptoms. By investigating all aspects of each woman’s life – assessing mental, physical and sexual health – bespoke treatment programmes are then devised.
Creating comprehensive care plans to get life back on track, transforming women’s lives, Dr Walker comments, “We see that a loss of self-identity is so common with the hormonal rollercoaster of menopause and the pressures of midlife. We can provide the individualised support and treatment that helps to restore this lost sense of self.”
Working collaboratively with each patient’s NHS GP, Myla Health offers face to face or online appointments, providing a quick-response and expert service which can be hard to secure in the NHS at the moment. As a team of specialists, with access to a wider community of menopause healthcare professionals for support on the latest research and developments, Myla Health offers a superior level of service and knowledge-driven care. Often women with complex medical backgrounds, such as those who have had breast cancer or other hormone dependent cancers, seek the expert support of Myla Health when they cannot get the help they need within the NHS.
As well as their clinics, the team at Myla Health have made it their mission to work towards all women being able to access high quality menopause care. Founders, Olivia Hum and Zoe Schaedel, are both on the council of the British Menopause Society, speaking nationwide to educate GPs, train clinicians and inform patients as well as providing corporate education and support in improving the healthcare experienced by women throughout the UK.
“We have decades of experience listening to women and hearing how the menopause and perimenopause affect their lives: work, health, relationships. “ comments Myla Health Founder Dr Olivia Hum. “ Women say they feel listened to and supported. We see again and again how a detailed assessment and proper individualized treatment can change lives. Women come back to us sleeping well, feeling happy and energetic, feeling full of confidence and ready to tackle the myriad of challenges that midlife throws at them.”
Welcoming women from all over Devon, from Cornwall and Somerset, Myla Health is located at Exeter Medical, part of Ramsay Health, a modern outpatient hospital on the outskirts of Exeter, that is easily accessible by car from the M5 motorway. Dr Walker’s clinic is available on Monday afternoons and Wednesday mornings. Online consultations are also available for women who prefer to see a menopause specialist from the comfort of their homes.
