The Mummy MOT

Simply Womens Health launched The Mummy MOT® in April 2013 at the We Train Moms Conference.

It is a detailed post natal 6 week check that tests the muscles of the tummy and pelvic floor, performed by a Specialist Womens Health Physiotherapist, and is recommended for all women following child birth. Advice on safe exercises is given as well as the best post natal exercises.

See me discussing the Mummy MOT® here on YouTube

Most women after having had a baby have a weakness in either the tummy or pelvic floor which then creates instability and poor core strength. The result can be back pain, pelvic pain , bladder and bowel weakness.

To avoid any long term issues come early and get tummy gap and pelvic floor tested and then start an optimal post natal recovery programme.We then refer to Post Natal Fitness specialists in the area and work closely with them on your individual progress.

The Mummy MOT®: 

  • is a 1-hour post-natal assessment with a Specialist Womens Health Physiotherapist
  • is ideally carried out at 6 weeks and beyond
  • is a thorough check of your Pelvic Floor Strength and Tummy gap (diastasis)
  • assesses any physical problems arising from pregnancy and birth
  • recommends a bespoke post natal recovery programme, looking at Posture, Breathing and core activation
  • is confidential, private & relaxed

"Oh my god I wish I had done The Mummy MOT® 5 years ago after my twins. No One checked for a tummy gap then. I am now working on an intensive post natal programme with Maria and my back pain has gone and tummy gap slowly improving. FS"



"I would highly recommend The Mummy MOT®. It is the most comprehensive assessment and advice session I have ever had. Maria checked my posture,breathing,tummy and pelvic floor muscles and then recommended the best exercises to do. It was supporative and very encouraging. EW"
