Our Women’s Health specialist Mary Kate takes a look at why all moms need a Mommy MOT!
It doesn’t matter whether you are a new mom or a mom of many years, this MOT is for you!
Already part of every new mother’s standard post-natal rehabilitation in France, trained specialists assesses the strength and function of the tummy and pelvic floor muscles to help prevent long-term childbirth related complaints.
What is a “Mommy MOT”?
The Mummy MOT is a specialist post-natal assessment recommended for all women following delivery – whether 6 weeks or many years after. To avoid any long term childbirth related complaints come early and get your tummy gap and pelvic floor tested – then start an optimal postnatal recovery programme.
What does the Mummy MOT include?
• 1-hour post-natal assessment with a Specialist Post-natal Health Physiotherapist
• In depth check of pelvic floor strength and tummy gap
• Assessment of any physical problems arising from pregnancy and birth
• A bespoke post-natal recovery programme devised especially for you, your
lifestyle and fitness goals. This includes specific and safe post-natal exercises to improve stability, posture and core strength.
Who needs a Mummy MOT?
After having a baby, half of all women have a weakness in either their tummy or pelvic floor area – over a third suffer with chronic pelvic pain. This creates instability and poor core strength and results in altered transfer load, back pain, pelvic pain, bladder and bowel weakness. A Mummy MOT helps women avoid these distressing and often embarrassing symptoms. The assessment by a specialist physiotherapist of the tummy gap and pelvic floor will enable the creation of a bespoke post-natal recovery programme plan devised especially for the woman, her lifestyle and fitness goals, including specific and safe post-natal exercises to regain stability and optimum function.
