Women’s Health – The Mummy MOT
A holistic post-natal assessment recommended for all women following delivery, from six weeks after childbirth onwards
What is a Mummy MOT?
The Mummy MOT is a specialist post-natal assessment recommended for all women following delivery – whether six weeks or many years after. We have a holistic approach starting with a detailed history followed by a musculoskeletal assessment and evaluation. We look at lifestyle issues that can have a major impact on pain and symptoms including sleep, stress and activity levels. We will assess the strength and function of the tummy and pelvic floor muscles to help prevent long-term childbirth related complaints.
