At Bloume,
it all starts
with you


We are driven by our core values.

1. Backed by science

Our approach is backed by a strong and compelling evidence base
(and it always will be).

2.Β Breaking down taboos

You won't find any fuzzy metaphors and euphemisms here – a vulva is a vulva.

3. Comprehensive care

Our biopsychosocial model of care targets psychological and physical symptoms, together.

4. Committed to inclusivity

We're committed to ensuring our programs are inclusive and accessible to all who need them.

Why Bloume?

Here at Bloume, we are committed to closing the Gender Pain Gap.
