Women's Postnatal Health Assessment + Mummy MOTSpecialist Physiotherapy Care For Women
WOMEN’S POSTNATAL HEALTH ASSESSMENT + MUMMY MOT
One in every three women suffer from women’s health-related problems: pregnancy-related back pain, pelvic pain, sciatica or carpal tunnel syndrome, especially after having children.
Our dedicated Mummy MOT is an in-depth postnatal health assessment that assesses the strength, activation and function of the abdominal and pelvic floor muscles following childbirth.
Performed by a specialist postnatal health Physiotherapist, it is recommended for all women following any type of delivery. Most women, after childbirth, have a weakness in either the tummy or pelvic floor area, which can create instability and poor core strength. The result can be altered transfer load, back pain, pelvic pain, bladder and bowel weakness. To avoid these distressing symptoms, it is essential for mums to get their diastasis recti and pelvic floor tested and begin an optimal postnatal recovery program.
- A one-hour specialised postnatal assessment with a specialist postnatal health Physiotherapist
- Suitable any time from 6 weeks to 6 years after childbirth
- Pelvic floor strength and tummy gap checks
- Assessment of any physical problems arising from pregnancy and birth
- A bespoke postnatal recovery program, looking at posture, breathing and core activation
Women’s health-related issues are not exclusively for amazing mums; any woman can also benefit from our specialist women’s health assessment and treatment.
Issues like non-pregnancy related pelvic floor, bladder and bowel dysfunction which may cause problems like incontinence, pain, pelvic organ prolapses or sexual dysfunction.
Like all of Platinum Physiotherapy services, our women’s health service is highly confidential and respects the sensitive nature of these problems.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY
The physiotherapy from Platinum Pilates & Physiotherapy is simply outstanding. I have had several Physio-related issues ranging from sporting injuries to problems with ergonomics. The team at Platinum Physio were able to fix every issue I had without fail. Not only is the quality of the treatment top-notch, but the team provide a warm and friendly atmosphere at all their sites. It’s always a pleasure to visit Platinum Pilates and Physio.
Thanks to Ben I am back running after a 6-year break due to injury! He quickly identified the problem and worked on getting my strength back. His guidance on how to restart training safely, together with a plan of carefully chosen and easy-to-follow exercises to do at home means I am back running pain-free for the first time in years! Thank you.
Ben is an expert in what he does and I 100% trust that I am in safe hands. The level of attention, continuous communication and effort I have received from Ben has put me at ease since my first session. I look forward to working with Ben throughout the rest of my athletic career.
Meaghan Ryan - Athlete
I went to Platinum Physiotherapy suffering from shoulder, lower back and hip pain as well as bad posture. The facilities and equipment at Platinum are wonderful. The physiotherapist I worked with, Sinead was amazing. Her knowledge, expertise and encouragement have helped me to improve all of my presenting issues. Working with Sinead has given me new confidence in my body image and empowered me because I now understand how to work out to manage my body and have good posture.
I couldn’t speak more highly of the treatment I received from Ben over the past few years. It not only fixed my existing injuries but prevent future problems as well through a personalized gym routine. The whole process is very simple, from booking an appointment to getting a gym routine on the app. It’s great to have a physio that genuinely cares about optimising my performance.
Paul O'Donnell - Athlete
The quality of specialist expertise of Ben and Tony in this practice is simply outstanding and by far the best, in terms of effective treatment, I have ever experienced. Their approach is pragmatic and clear, and they always succeed in making a difference.
I used to run 150 to 200 kilometres per month before I injured my tendon. The injury came after a half marathon that was too fast for my tendons to handle because I rarely did strength training. Because the pain persisted for another couple of years, I basically gave up running. Ben successfully identified the sources of my injury, which healed after several sessions and months of focused exercises.Not only do I run long-distance again, but Ben also helps me keep the strength, mobility, and stability of my entire body at a high level. This way, I know I have the foundation to do long runs for many years to come!
Mary-Kate is warm, caring and extremely skilled at what she does! Bringing our attention back to our bodies after having a baby can be a bit daunting but Mary-Kate immediately put me at ease. With her knowledge and hands-on expertise, she guided me to reconnect with my body and showed me how I can best support myself at home. I would highly recommend Mary-Kate to any woman looking for some much deserved postnatal care.
