Post Natal Physiotherapy

We encourage all women to have a Specialist Physiotherapy post natal check (sometimes called 'Mummy MOT') after pregnancy and delivery to assess abdominal and pelvic floor function.

It is recommended approximately 8 weeks after delivery, however it is never too late to be assessed and get help with any post natal complications or concerns.

Mummy MOT Physiotherapy

A post natal Physiotherapy assessment ('Mummy MOT') will include :

  • Abdominal muscle function, including assessment of diastasis (abdominal separation)

  • Breathing pattern 

  • Internal examination

  • Pelvic floor function

  • Assessment for pelvic organ prolapse

  • Assessment of any birth trauma or scarring

  • Functional assessment for guided and safe return to exercise
