What Is A Mummy MOT?
1 in 3 post natal women will have pelvic floor problems which can result in pain, weakness, prolapse or incontinence. Intervention by a Women's Health Physiotherapist can help support women back to optimum health, with a holistic individualised program for long term recovery.
The Mummy MOT is a service provided by our Women's Health Physiotherapist. This usually occurs 6 weeks and beyond following child birth.
What Does The Mummy MOT Involve?
The Mummy MOT should be thought of as a check up following child birth. Included is:
- A 1 hour post natal assessment with a specialist Women's Health Physiotherapist
- Check of pelvic floor strength
- Check of tummy gap
- Assessment of any physical problems arising from child birth or pregnancy
- A bespoke postnatal recovery program will be recommended. This includes advice & exercises surrounding posture, breathing & core activation.
