A Mummy MOT is a specialist postnatal examination for women following both vaginal and C-section deliveries.
'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.' (the mummyMOT.com)
The mummy MOT will assess how your posture, pelvic floor muscles and stomach muscles are recovering after childbirth and will screen for any bowel, bladder or sexual dysfunctions.
New mummies need to be able to bend, squat, lift, walk freely so your specialist physiotherapist will provide you with gentle exercises and a treatment plan bespoke to you depending on your goals and lifestyle factors, to help with your recovery. If you are keen to return to exercise for example, your physio will give you specific guidance on achieving your goals and help get you back on track.
Treatment Cost: £90
Treatment Duration: 1 hour
