What is a MummyMOT®?

The MummyMOT® is a detailed postnatal physiotherapy assessment of the abdominal and pelvic area, recommended for all women following delivery – whether six weeks or many years after. The service is already part of every new mother’s standard post-natal rehabilitation in France, and sees trained specialists assess the strength and function of the tummy and pelvic floor muscles to help prevent long-term childbirth-related complaints.

 

It will check your posture, breathing, tummy gap and pelvic floor strength and you will receive a report of the findings on the day. You will also receive a bespoke post-natal recovery programme tailored for you, your lifestyle and fitness goals.

What does the MummyMOT ® include?

  • A 1-hour post-natal assessment with a specialist post-natal health physiotherapist.
  • An in-depth check of pelvic floor strength and tummy gap.
  • An assessment of any physical problems arising from pregnancy and birth.
  • A bespoke post-natal recovery programme devised especially for you, your lifestyle and fitness goals. This includes specific and safe post-natal exercises to improve stability, posture and core strength.
  • Cost: £90 including assessment and tailored rehab programme.

After having a baby, half of all women have a weakness in either their tummy or pelvic floor area – over a third suffer with complex pelvic pain. This can create instability and weak core strength and results in altered transfer load, back pain, pelvic pain, bladder and bowel weakness.
