Mummy MOT Assessment

The Mummy Mot 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.

Most women after having had a baby have a weakness in either the tummy or pelvic floor area which creates instability and poor core strength. The result will be altered transfer load, back pain, pelvic pain, bladder and bowel weakness. In order to avoid these distressing symptoms, have your tummy gap and pelvic floor tested and then start an optimal postnatal recovery programme.

The Mummy MOT is:
  • 1-hour specialised post-natal assessment with a Specialist Post Natal Physiotherapist
  • Suitable any time from 6 weeks to 6 years!!
  • Checks pelvic floor strength and tummy gap
  • Assess any physical problems arising from pregnancy and birth
  • Recommends a bespoke post natal recovery programme, looking at Posture, Breathing and Core activation
  • Cost £80

“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

 Mummy Mot System
  • The Mummy Mot combines the principles of Physiotherapy assessment with the practice of functional retraining.
  • Following delivery postural changes, muscle imbalances and altered alignment occur and persist. It is essential to correct and rebalance otherwise pain, prolapse, urinary incontinence or rectus abdominis diastasis will persist. Left untreated, how can Mum’s return to daily functional activities safely. Mums need to bend, lift, squat, twist.
  • The Mummy Mot System identifies muscle imbalances through the assessment and the restorative exercise programme corrects them, regaining stability and allowing optimal function.
  • The System uses theraband, balls and rollers to help activate the important stabilising muscles. Proprioception and breath work are incorporated. 100% Focus and Working purposefully on the out breathe all help to facilitate optimum muscle recovery.
