The Mummy MOT, founded by Maria Elliot, is an in-depth postnatal assessment that assesses the strength, activation and function of the abdominal and pelvic floor muscles following childbirth.
Performed by a Specialist Post Natal Health Physiotherapist it is recommended for all women following delivery.
After having a baby most women will experience weakness in their tummy or pelvic floor muscles, which creates instability and poor core strength. This can result in an altered transfer load, back pain, pelvic pain, bladder and bowel weakness. To avoid these distressing symptoms you can have your tummy gap and pelvic floor assessed and start your bespoke postnatal recovery programme.
“Oh my god 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 is slowly improving” FS
“I would highly recommend The Mummy Mot. It is the most comprehensive assessment and advice session I have ever had. Sandra checked my posture, breathing, tummy and pelvic floor muscles and then recommended the best exercises to do. It was supportive and very encouraging” ES
