(The Mummy MOT)
WOMEN'S HEALTH APPOINTMENTS
A.K.A The Mummy MOT
We offer a specialist postnatal examination following both vaginal and caesarian deliveries. This assesses how your posture, pelvic floor and stomach muscles are recovering after childbirth. We can provide you with exercises and treatment to help with your recovery.
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 the development of 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.
We treat people who have recently given birth but we also treat those who gave birth years ago that may still have a tummy gap or related pelvic floor issues.
Alex Corser and Maite Delafin have trained with the UK's leading Women's Health Physiotherapists and is fully trained and licensed to carry out a Mummy MOT. Mums need to bend squat and lift so she provides clinical postnatal care and functional exercises for clients following birth (no matter how long ago).

C-section recovery/ scar therapy
Available from 6/8 weeks postpartum, and it's never too late, older scars can respond well too.
For C-section recovery, it’s important to mobilise the tissues in order to assist the natural scarring process and prevent potential adhesions.
How can C-section scar therapy help?
Stimulate change to scar tissue on the skin surface, and to adhesions or fibrosis in the underlying tissue.
Reduce common symptoms, such as numbness, swelling, pain and sensitivity, and any associated pain (such as hip, pelvic or back pain)
Promote cosmetic improvements after C-section.
Maite Delafin is our C-section scar restore therapist and has appointments available Thursdays.
