A Mummy MOT is a specialist postnatal examination for women following both C-section and vaginal deliveries.
It assesses how your posture, pelvic floor muscles and stomach muscles are recovering after childbirth, before giving you a personalised advice and exercises plan.
Did you know that up to half of all women experience weakness in both the abdominal muscles and pelvic floor muscles after pregnancy and up to a third still have a tummy gap at eight weeks post-birth.
This can cause instability or poor core strength leading to women developing pelvic or back pain or bladder, bowel and sexual dysfunction. These conditions should not be something you should just put up with as a result of having a baby, this is where the Mummy MOT can help.
It's recommended that women have an initial assessment after their 6-8 week GP check, but we also treat women who gave birth years ago that may still have a tummy gap or related pelvic floor issues, if in doubt just get in contact and we'll advise if a Mummy MOT is right for you.
