Who needs a Mummy MOT?
After having a baby, half of all women have a weakness in either their pelvic floor or their tummy - over a third have chronic pelvic pain. This creates instability and poor core strength and can result in back pain, pelvic pain, bowel and bladder weakness. A Mummy MOT helps women avoid these symptoms by giving them a tailored post-natal recovery programme.
Often new mums do not prioritise themselves and the focus is all on the baby. The Mummy MOT is a chance for you to take care of yourself in the post-natal period.
