The Mummy MOT 

What is a Mummy MOT?

It's a specialist post-natal assessment recommended for all women following delivery – whether 6 weeks or many years after.

Already part of every new mother’s standard post-natal rehabilitation in France, trained specialists assess the strength and function of the tummy and pelvic floor muscles to help prevent long-term childbirth-related complaints.

What does the Mummy MOT include?

1 hour plus post-natal assessment with a Specialist Post-natal Health
Physiotherapist at our private clinic
• In-depth check of pelvic floor strength and tummy gap
• Assessment of any physical problems arising from pregnancy and birth
• A bespoke post-natal recovery program devised especially for you, your lifestyle and fitness goals.

This includes specific and safe postnatal exercises to improve stability, posture, and core strength

 

Who needs a Mummy MOT?

After having a baby, half of all women have a weakness in either their tummy or pelvic floor area – over a third suffer from chronic pelvic pain. This creates instability and poor core strength and results in altered transfer load, back pain, pelvic pain, bladder and bowel weakness.
A Mummy MOT helps women avoid these distressing and often embarrassing symptoms.

The assessment by a specialist physiotherapist of the tummy gap and pelvic floor will enable the creation of a bespoke post-natal recovery program plan devised especially for the woman, her lifestyle, and fitness goals, including specific and safe post-natal exercises to regain stability and optimum function.
