The Mummy MOT is a postnatal programme that tests the muscles of the tummy and pelvic floor as well as providing the best post natal exercises. Performed by our Specialist Women’s Health Physiotherapist it is recommended for all women after having a baby. 

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 to get your tummy gap and pelvic floor tested and then start an optimal postnatal recovery programme. The Mummy MOT programme runs for 6-8 sessions over a 3 month period and combines the principles of physiotherapy assessment with functional exercise training.

Mummy MOT:

  • Post-natal assessment with a Specialist Women’s Health Physiotherapist
  • Ideally at 6 weeks and beyond
  • It includes
    • A thorough check of pelvic floor strength and tummy gap
    • Assessment of any physical problems arising from pregnancy and birth
    • A bespoke postnatal recovery programme, looking at posture, breathing and core activation as well as nutrition

“I wish I had done The Mummy Mot 5 years ago after my twins. No one checked for a tummy gap. I am now working on an intensive post natal programme and my back pain has gone and tummy gap slowly improving.”

“I would highly recommend The Mummy Mot. It is the most comprehensive assessment and advice session I have ever had. My posture,breathing,tummy and pelvic floor muscles were checked and then the best exercises were recommended. It was supportive and very encouraging.”
