Mummy MOT

What is a Mummy MOT?

The Mummy MOT is 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 assesses 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 post-natal assessment with a Specialist Post-natal Health
Physiotherapist at our private ‘Copford Physiotherapy’ 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 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

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 with 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 programme plan devised especially for the woman, her lifestyle and fitness goals, including specific and safe post-natal exercises to regain stability and optimum function.

“I have been treated by Tanya during two pregnancies in which I suffered with SPD and I would recommend her to anyone. In addition she has an amazing knowledge of how the body connects, which she was able to explain to me in simple terms so that I was better able to look after myself, also recommending supports and exercises that really made a difference”.
