The Mummy MOT is a comprehensive check-up for new mums recommended from six – eight weeks after birth, but we also see any woman who gave birth years ago but still feels things aren’t as they used to be.
Up to half of all women experience weakness in both the abdominal muscles and pelvic floor muscles after pregnancy and up to a third still have a tummy gap at eight weeks post-birth. This can cause instability or poor core strength, leading to women developing pelvic or back pain, bladder, bowel or sexual dysfunction. These conditions should not be something you should just put up with as a result of having a baby.
We’re now able to offer the Mummy MOT®, a specialist post-natal physiotherapy assessment for mums to find out if they have any damage from childbirth and what to do about it.
You don’t have to put up with any uncomfortable or embarrassing conditions after having a baby – especially those that affect your everyday life and confidence. Mums need to bend, squat and lift so we provide clinical postnatal care and functional exercises for female clients following birth (no matter how long ago).
The Mummy MOT® identifies what’s wrong and our specialist women’s health physiotherapists will give you advice, exercises and further treatment to rehabilitate you and get you feeling more like yourself and able to live your life without anxiety or issues.
We’re the only clinic within a 10-mile radius of Dartford with this qualification and have already seen many women – new mums and mums with older children too, who want to recover from childbirth and get to be ‘almost as good as new’!
At KTB we have two physiotherapists who are fully trained and licensed to carry out a Mummy MOT®. There’s nothing you can’t discuss with our specialists – their primary concern is rehab and recovery and getting you more comfortable and confidence.
When you book, you only need to request an hour appointment with Ali or Sarah – you don’t need to give any information about your concerns.
We’re looking forward to welcoming you into the clinic.
