Mummy MOT

Mummy MOT in Surrey

The MummyMOT® is a unique detailed Post-natal Physiotherapy assessment of the abdominal and pelvic area, advised to be carried out from 6 weeks postnatally (though still beneficial years later!). The assessment is carried out by our Specialist Women’s Health Physiotherapist Vanesha Patel who is a certified Mummy MOTⓇ Practitioner. It will check your posture, breathing, tummy gap and pelvic floor strength. Following the assessment, you will receive an appropriate safe exercise programme tailored to you, and a report of the findings and advice given. While Mummy MOT is recommended to be undertaken from 6-8 weeks postnatally, we also treat women who gave birth years ago that may still have a tummy gap or pelvic floor issues.

Mummy MOT – Frequently asked questions

Who needs a Mummy MOT®?

In truth, every Postnatal woman would benefit from a Mummy MOT! It is very common for women to have postural changes, and weakness in their tummy or pelvic floor muscles after having had a baby. These weaknesses create instability, muscle imbalances, and poor core strength around the pelvis, which can cause back pain, pelvic pain, bladder and bowel weakness (leaking) and pelvic organ prolapse. Those that have had cesarean sections may need advice and guidance on their resulting scar tissue.

All too often we see women who have left these issues unchecked leading to difficulties down the line. Identifying these muscle imbalances as early as possible can help avoid or reduce these symptoms. Many women also feel that they want their body checked before returning to sport or exercise postnatally.
