The Mummy MOT®

What is the Mummy MOT®

A Mummy MOT® is a specialist postnatal examination for women following both vaginal and caesarean deliveries. It will assess how your posture, pelvic floor muscles and stomach muscles are recovering after birth.

Mums need to bend, lift, squat and twist, so experiencing some pain and discomfort just after pregnancy is to be expected. However during the period when mums are returning to usual daily activities and caring for their newborn, feeling physically strong must be a priority.

The Mummy MOT® is a detailed postnatal assessment performed by a trained and licenced specialist Osteopath. Combining the principles of Osteopathy assessment with the practice of functional retraining, the Mummy MOT® looks at posture, breathing, tummy gap and pelvic floor strength in order to help mums regain optimum health following birth.

What to expect on your visit?

The one hour in depth assessment is suitable from 6 weeks to 6 years after pregnancy and includes:

  • Pelvic strength and tummy gap check
  • Thorough full body postural assessment, addressing any physical problems arisen from pregnancy or birth
  • A report of findings on the day of the assessment
  • A post-natal recovery programme devised especially for you, your lifestyle and your fitness goals
  • Bespoke and safe post-natal exercises to improve stability, posture and core strength
