I wish I had done The Mummy MOT 5 years ago ..my back pain has gone and my tummy gap is slowly improving.


I would highly recommend The Mummy MOT. It is the most comprehensive assessment and advice session I have ever had.


Five years after my son’s birth I still couldn’t get rid of my ‘mummy tummy’. The mummy MOT tummy gap exercises have made a real difference – more than anything else I’ve tried.


Louise put me at ease straight away, she really understood what was going on for me.


Louise was so thorough and knew exactly how to help me straight away. I actually feel empowered, like a new women.

Who needs a Mummy MOT?

After having a baby, half of all women have a weakness in either their tummy or pelvic floor area – over a third suffer with chronic pelvic pain. This creates instability and poor core strength and results in altered transfer load, back pain, pelvic pain, bladder and bowel weakness.

A Mummy MOT helps women avoid these distressing and often embarrassing symptoms. The assessment by a specialist physiotherapist of the tummy gap and pelvic floor will enable the creation of a bespoke post-natal recovery programme plan devised especially for the woman, her lifestyle and fitness goals, including specific and safe post-natal exercises to regain stability and optimum function.

Who does the Mummy MOT?

Louise is certified and specifically trained to complete the ‘Mummy MOT’ assessment and subsequent treatment and management. She is listed on the Mummy MOT Register.
