Mummy MOT

What is a Mummy MOT?

The Mummy MOT service is a women’s health physiotherapy assessment for new mums. We’ll assess your posture, breathing, abdominal muscles and pelvic floor – and we’ll recommend any other postnatal recovery services you might benefit from. We’ll also talk you through postnatal exercise and getting back to fitness.

You’ll get a full postural screen for:

  • Tummy gap (diastasis recti).
  • Bladder or bowel leakage.
  • Signs of prolapse.
  • Back and pelvic pain.
  • Sexual dysfunction.

Depending on your needs this may include:

  • Pelvic floor muscle assessment.
  • Abdominal muscle exam to check for any separation.
  • Back and pelvis assessment.
  • C-section or perineal scar assessment.

You’ll leave your appointment with:

  • A better understanding of your postnatal needs and goals.
  • A plan to recover from your delivery and get back to what you love doing.
  • An understanding of the stages you’ll go through in your postnatal recovery.
  • The reassurance that you’ve got our support through it all.

We’ll follow up with: 

  • Education and advice on safe ways to protect your recovery AND keep up with being a new mum.
  • A bespoke rehab programme tailed to your needs and goals.
  • The knowledge you’re doing your pelvic floor exercises correctly and in a way that will move you forwards.

Who is Mummy MOT For?

Mummy MOT is available for new mums from 6 weeks postnatal onwards, whether you had a vaginal delivery or C-sections. But even if you had children a while ago, our postnatal physiotherapy service is here to support all mums – regardless of the conditions of your labour and delivery, to help your body recover.

What to Expect From Mummy MOT

At your first Mummy MOT appointment, we’ll do an initial assessment. We’ll chat to you so we can understand your medical and pregnancy history, as well as any current conditions and concerns you might have. And we’ll offer you a tummy check and a pelvic health check, but these are up to you.

We’ll also discuss your goals so we can create a tailored care plan, bespoke for you and your lifestyle, which we’ll send you as a written report after your assessment.

I saw Emily for quite a few months after the birth of my baby and she was amazing. I honestly couldn't have been better looked after by her. She was so reassuring and gave me a plan for getting rehab and getting back into fitness. Emily is also so lovely to deal with and I really enjoyed our sessions. She is really knowledgeable and you just know you are in safe hands. I used to have regular massages with Hannah and James who were both excellent. I only stopped because we moved out the area. The Diamond package for monthly massages is well worth it. I also went to the baby and me Pilates course, which was really well led with great corrections.

Excellent service, had a strain in my back and they made me an appointment the same day. All staff were great, the consultation and sports massage was so beneficial and really helped, good tips and advice as well. Well worth it and would recommend to everyone.
