The Mummy MOT®

A comprehensive post natal check from a specialist Women’s Health Physiotherapist.

What is The Mummy MOT® postnatal check?

The Mummy MOT® is a specialist postnatal examination for women following either vaginal and C-section deliveries.

Whether you have recently given birth or you had your child a long time ago I will assess how your posture, pelvic floor muscles and stomach muscles are recovering after childbirth.

This is suitable anytime from 6 weeks post vaginal delivery and 8 weeks post caesarian delivery and it’s never too late to have a Mummy MOT! Once post-natal, always post-natal!

Your whole core system will be checking including diaphragm, core abdominal muscles and pelvic floor muscles (including an internal vaginal examination – this isn’t essential but is recommended for a thorough assessment). Your C-section scar will also be examined if applicable.

Mums need to bend, squat and lift many times each day, so you will be provided you with gentle functional exercises and treatment to help with your recovery, to allow you to return to exercise safely and to cope with the everyday demands of being a mum!

What is included:

The Mummy MOT® assessment includes:

  • A full postural and functional movement screen
  • Pelvic floor muscle assessment
  • Abdominal muscle exam to check for any separation
  • C-section scar assessment
  • Screening for any bladder, bowel or sexual dysfunction
  • Personalised assessment for your unique goals

You will be provided with:

  • A written report tailored to the findings of your assessment
  • Bespoke rehabilitation programme with your goals and lifestyle factors in mind
  • Self scar massage techniques for C-section and perineal scars
  • Recommendations on the number of follow up sessions you will require
  • Education and advice on safe baby-care activities such as lifting your baby or pushing a buggy
