Mummy MOT

Hi all,

I'm not sure if you can post about specific services that you have tried, but just wanted to let Mums know about this in case anyone was looking for a service like it, as I thought it was really good!

I had a sort of Mummy MOT, at a clinic in Central London called Tonicity a month ago (they call the assessment and treatments Natal). Lots of questions about the birth of my DD, general health and that sort of thing.

The physio gave me a programme to help my pelvic floor get back into shape. I had been 'trying' to do pelvic floor exercises but found that I still needed some help in this area as it was weak - and I also had some strengthening exercises for my tummy and back, which were definitely needed!

I found them through the NCT Westminster link http://www.nctpregnancyandbabycare.com/in-your-area/westminster/directory/Tonicity but there maybe similar services in other areas if anyone was interested. I didn't actually join the exercise class as I found the other treatment was more suited to my needs. I passed on the details to a friend who has also had some treatments, and found them really helpful, so just thought I'd spread the word, as it was not just me!

This sounds good. I wish I had known about it this time last year! How soon after delivery can/should you be seen? And how much did it cost for the MOT and treatment sessions? Just so I can pass on some details to a friend... Thanks.

Hi DarW,

Sorry I did not reply before - manic Easter! I'm not sure how quickly you can be seen after delivery. One of the questions was about my 6 week GP check (that everything was fine really) and their postnatal classes are from 6 weeks postnatal, so I'd probably hazard a safe guess at that. I was 8 weeks postnatal.

The first session was an hour and cost £45 (with an additional £25 for the treatment probe for pelvic floor work) and each follow up was 30mins and also £45 whether for pelvic floor or tummy, back and bottom etc. exercises. Hope that helps.

Thanks v much for all of the info. My friend is now past 6 weeks, so I'll suggest to her to give these people a call! It does seem like a good idea to actually have a chance to be able to ask all of those 'silly' questions and get some help, especially as our GP checks are somewhat brief!
