What is a Mummy MOT?
The Mummy MOT is a postnatal check that examines the pelvic floor (internal and external) pelvic alignment, musculoskeletal health and diastasis recti. This postnatal assessment can help to identify, assess and manage any postnatal pelvic health conditions.
Your Mummy MOT will be conducted by a specialist women’s health physiotherapist or osteopath. Based on your initial assessment, you will be given a bespoke postnatal recovery plan devised especially for you, your lifestyle and fitness goals, including specific and safe postnatal exercises to get you back to feeling your best self.

Who needs a Mummy MOT?
After having a baby, half of all women have a weakness in either their tummy or pelvic floor area, while over a third suffer from complex pelvic pain. This can create instability and weak core strength and results in altered transfer load, back pain, pelvic pain, and bladder and bowel weakness. A Mummy MOT helps women avoid these distressing and often embarrassing symptoms.
