What is Mummy MOT?

 

After giving birth, a third of women have weakness in both their tummy and pelvic floor muscles.

The tummy gap is called Diastasis Recti. This can cause back pain, and symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD) – associated with pain in the pubic bone.

This instability of weak muscles in several areas can cause a woman to have less control of the bladder and bowel.

 

Some discomfort in sexual activity can be experienced. The conditions can be improved with MummyMOT treatment, exercises and after care advice.

It is recommended that women have an initial assessment after their 6-8 weeks GP check-up. We also treat women who gave birth several years ago who may still experience a tummy gap, prolapse, painful intercourse, bowel or bladder problems.
