Mummy MOT

The Mummy MOT is a specialist postnatal assessment we recommend for all women following delivery – whether 6 weeks or years after.

Most women experience weakened stomach and pelvic floor muscles after delivery, creating instability and poor core strength. This can result in problems such as back pain, pelvic pain, bladder and bowel weaknesses.

We’ll look at the strength and function of your abdominal and pelvic floor muscles and work to understand how your body is compensating for these changes. Together, we’ll help you achieve your goals and regain your confidence.

This includes:

  • Assessment of your tummy muscles after pregnancy
  • Evaluation of your pelvic floor muscles (internal vaginal assessment is optional)
  • Check for scar tissue, rib cage changes and other postnatal issues
  • Full screen of your posture, breathing and physical changes
  • Recommendations for tummy and pelvic floor exercises

C-Section ScarWorks

ScarWorks is a gentle yet effective technique that stimulates healing.

Often scars can feel tight, restrict mobility, be painful or have reduced sensation. This treatment helps to smooth out the scar and integrate it with the rest of the myofascial system. ScarWorks can also improve the appearance of lumps, bumps, knots and strings in the tissue of the scar and surrounding area.

ScarWorks can start as early as six weeks after a c-section. However, it's never too late to work on a scar and see results.
