Mummy MOT (R) Assessment
A Mummy MOT (R) post-natal assessment is performed with the aim of preventing the development of long-term childbirth-related issues.
During pregnancy, labour and birth, a woman’s body undergoes significant changes and in many cases, trauma.
You may experience changes to your posture, pelvic floor function and abdominal strength, which may ultimately lead to problems such as pelvic girdle pain, diastasis recti (tummy gap) and even prolapse and/ or varying degrees of incontinence.
In the UK, unfortunately, routine post-natal physiotherapy is very limited. Some women return to exercise and activities after giving birth, ignoring the issues they are experiencing, often this makes them worse or they develop other problems as a result.
Mummy MOT ® has been created to help you in your journey to postnatal recovery. It achieves this by helping you to identify and understand any current or potential issues you may have and then assists you in rehabilitating safely and appropriately. This helps reduce the likelihood of long-term problems developing.
Mummy MOT ® is undertaken by a physiotherapist with specialist postnatal training. Mummy MOT ® can be carried out from 6 weeks after birth but even if you are years after birth it is never too late to address postnatal complaints or problems.
The Mummy MOT Assessment Session takes 1 hour and costs £90
Follow up sessions are reccomended to progress your exercise program every 3 weeks up to 12 weeks after your assessment. These are usually 30mins (£45) or 45 mins (£55)
