Who Needs a Mummy MOT®?
Up to half of all women experience weakness in both the abdominal muscles and pelvic floor muscles after pregnancy and up to a third still have a gap in their tummy muscles at 8 weeks post birth. This can cause instability or poor core strength leading to women developing pelvic or back pain or bladder, bowel and sexual dysfunction. These conditions do not have to be something you should just put up with as a result of having a baby.
It’s recommended that women have an initial assessment after their 6-8 week GP check, but we also treat women who gave birth years ago that may still have a tummy gap or related pelvic floor issues.
“I would highly recommend The Mummy MOT®. It is the most comprehensive assessment and advice session I have ever had. Maria checked my posture, breathing, tummy and pelvic floor muscles and then recommended the best exercises to do. It was supportive and very encouraging.”
“Oh my god I wish I had done The Mummy MOT® 5 years ago after my twins. No-one checked for a tummy gap then.
I am now working on an intensive post natal programme with Maria and my back pain has gone and tummy gap slowly improving. “
