Experienced Physiotherapists For Your Mummy MOT In London

During the postnatal period it’s common to neglect oneself, as the little-one takes centre stage. However, this is the time when your body is recovering and you need to give yourself that care and attention too. 

Not only will getting professional support make you feel your best, it can help you care for your new baby to the fullest. 

Mothers who don’t take care of themselves during this time can end up feeling tired and burnt out, especially if you’re having health issues following birth. Common problems during the postnatal period include issues with the pelvic floor, incontinence and breastfeeding issues. 

What is a Mummy MOT, and why have one following birth?

A mummy MOT is a postnatal assessment that’s ideal for women following vaginal and caesarean deliveries. It can occur 6 to 8 weeks after birth, or even many years afterwards. 

It involves having a qualified person check how your posture, pelvic floor muscles and stomach muscles. They can then recommend interventions to speed up your recovery if you are still feeling uncomfortable or experiencing pain.

Taking places over 90 minutes, you will have an in-depth check of pelvic floor strength and the tummy gap.

PelviCare offers Mummy MOTs along with those currently pregnant and women going through the menopause.
