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.
