Having a baby is an amazing thing, but it can be tough on your body, and recovery may not be straight forward.
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 or bladder, bowel and sexual dysfunction. These conditions should not be something you should just put up with as a result of having a baby.
That is why we are thrilled to be working with the specialist physiotherapists at MummyMOT to help you to get back to your fantastic best!
The Mummy MOT is a one hour assessment, carried out by a specialist women's health physio at our Chiswick clinic, and involves-
Full postural screen.
