The MummyMOT® is a detailed Post-natal Physiotherapy assessment of the abdominal and pelvic area, from 6 weeks postnatally (though still beneficial years later!)
We believe your body deserves to receive as much care & attention as your baby's.
It will check your posture, breathing, tummy gap and pelvic floor strength.
Following the assessment, you will receive an appropriate safe exercise programme tailored to you, and a report of the findings and advice given.
In brief, most Postnatal women would benefit from a Mummy MOT!
It is very common for women to have postural changes, and weakness in their tummy or pelvic floor muscles after having had a baby. These weaknesses create instability, muscle imbalances, and poor core strength around the pelvis, which can cause back pain, pelvic pain, bladder and bowel weakness (leaking) and pelvic organ prolapse.
Identifying these muscle imbalances as early as possible can help avoid or reduce these symptoms.
Many women also feel that they want their body checked before returning to sport postnatally.
Erica from Sussex Fitness runs 1:1 or group sessions helping women learn the knowledge and skills to strengthen their core and pelvic floor for life. Suitable for every woman who wants to take preventative action for their future health and well being, or to help women with current issues that need fixing.
Once your core and pelvic floor are ready to move on to more active workouts, Erica from Sussex Fitness runs boot camps that work you hard, but at the same time protect your pelvic health. There is no high impact work and it is suitable for all levels of fitness. Lots of women feel nervous about stepping into a gym or new exercise class. Sussex Fitness' boot camp is a welcoming and fun environment for women to work at their own level without judgement or embarrassment from anyone.
