How does the Mummy MOT® System work?
The Mummy MOT combines the principles of physiotherapy assessment progressed to Functional Exercise training following delivery. It includes education on the natal period postural changes and muscular imbalances that may cause pain and dysfunction both on a local and global level for the new mum. The education emphasises the importance of correcting and rebalancing these dysfunctions to avoid/solve issues such as POP, UIC and RDA through a restorative exercise programme to regain stability and optimal function.
The ‘Restorative’ portion of the system uses Swiss Balls, foam rollers and theraband to help activate the important stabilising muscles. Proprioception and breath work are both incorporated.
The ‘Functional Exercise for Motherhood’ portion of the education will give tuition on the creation and progression of exercise/fat loss programmes for Post Natal moms at all levels of recovery alongside the principles of ‘Movement-Based’ Pelvic Floor Exercise
