Vicki is on Maternity Leave from 28th December to April 2024. MummyMOT's will resume from this point. Get in contact if you have any questions.
The MummyMOT® is suitable for any Mum who has had their 6-8 week post-natal GP/ midwife check. This includes women who may have given birth years ago and still have pelvic floor dysfunction symptoms (urinary incontinence or prolapse) or tummy separation/ weakness.
See the FAQ's for more info.
85% sustain perineal trauma during labour
45% of women continue to have urine incontinence 7 years post-natally
50% of post-natal women will have a degree of prolapse
100% of women experience ‘tummy gap’ during pregnancy (this is normal to allow room for the baby to grow) however 45% of women continue to have ‘tummy gap’ at 6months and 33% 12months
50% of those still with a tummy gap are likely to have some pelvic floor dysfunction.
Most pelvic girdle pain experienced during pregnancy will go within the first 3 months, but for the small few the pain can persist
1 Hour Initial Appointment
The hour long first session aims to be a one-stop-shop, checking and guiding women through post-natal recovery.

Abdominal assessment including stomach separation - confirmed with ultrasound scanning
Pelvic floor assessment with the option to use ultrasound scanning.

Recommend supports, equipment, incontinence/prolapse aids
Work toward future goals back to pre-natal fitness and beyond
