    After having a baby most women will encounter some weakness in their pelvic floor and/or tummy muscles which can result in back pain, pelvic pain, bladder and/or bowel weakness. This may leave you with many questions like

    What exercise is safe to return to? Will I ever feel normal again? Why do I wet myself? Why do I still look pregnant? 

    During an MOT we will give you the answers you are looking for.

    “I started going while I was pregnant and after delivery with a complex 2nd degree tear. I went with a list of problems from incontinence to back pain and ‘boudoir’ issues. My physio was fantastic at her job and really understood 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 have a MOT. I can now physically face my job as an A&E doctor.

    “Just completed my Mummy MOT programme. Was amazed at the problems 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”.
