The Mummy MOT

The MummyMOT is a postnatal 6-week check that tests the muscles of the tummy and pelvic floor. Performed by a Specialist Women’s Health physiotherapist it is recommended for all women after having a baby.

Advice on safe exercises are given as well as the best post natal exercises.

Most women after having had a baby have a weakness in either the tummy or pelvic floor which then creates instability and poor core strength. The result causes back pain, pelvic pain, bladder and bowel weakness .

To avoid any long term childbirth related complaints come early and get tummy gap and pelvic floor tested and then start an optimal postnatal recovery programme.
