ByBlackNB founder opens women’s pelvic health clinic in New Bedford

NEW BEDFORD — When Justina Perry launched BuyBlackNB, a directory celebrating Black-owned businesses in the New Bedford area, little did she know it would inspire her to take the leap and start her own business.

“I didn’t have examples of ownership within my circle, and especially of black ownership,” Perry, 34, said. “It happened organically. And I just started to feel more and more like it was less of a low threshold for me.

Perry has, for the past eight years, worked for Southcoast Health as a Doctor of Physical Therapy specializing in pelvic health and pelvic floor rehab.

“I had incredible advice, which I think is really valuable for new graduates like me at the time,” she said. “I felt like it was time for me to move on to something else.”

In December, Perry launched Oshun Physical Therapy and Pelvic Health, located at 1249 Ashley Blvd. The business is geared toward women who are ready to heal their pelvic floor and learn more about their bodies.
