Mummy MOT

What is the Mummy MOT?

The Mummy MOT® is a check up that can be performed from 6 weeks post-natally by a specialist Women’s Health Physiotherapist.

It tests the muscles of the tummy and the pelvic floor and is recommended for all women after having a baby.

After having a baby most women will encounter some weakness in their pelvic floor or tummy muscles which can result in back pain, pelvic pain, bladder and bowel weakness.

To avoid any long term childbirth related complaints come and get your tummy checked for ‘the gap’ AND your pelvic floor tested and then start an optimal postnatal recovery programme.

Mummy MOT’s are available at Sale (M33) and Rochdale (OL12)

“I started going while I was pregnant and after delivery with a complex 2nd degree tear. I went to Debbie with a list of problems from incontinence to back pain and ‘boudoir’ issues. Debbie is fantastic at her job and really understands pre and postnatal care. I am now functioning back to my normal self. Women should never feel ashamed of what seems to be common postnatal issues and if you are suffering after birth – I recommend that you see Debbie. I can now physically face my job as an A&E doctor.

“Just completed my Mummy MOT programme. Was amazed at the problems Deb found, that I would never have been aware of. So pleased with the results, all back pain and stomach twinges gone. Deb is really welcoming and reassuring- would definitely recommend the programme”.
