What is a Post Natal Mummy Check?
This is a thorough post-natal assessment that is designed to help and support you post-delivery, whether that be following a vaginal delivery or c-section. It is typically advised to have this from 6 weeks post delivery but can benefit you at any time after you have given birth. So whether you are at the start of your very first post-natal journey or your second, third or more, it can still help you achieve your postpartum goals.
What happens during your Post Natal Mummy Check?
Firstly we will take an in depth history of your pregnancy, labour and delivery and talk about any issues you feel you may be having following the birth of your baby.
This can be very individual and personal to you, but may include concerns over tummy gaps/separation (Diastasis recti muscle gap), your pelvic girdle pain (PGP) hasn’t settled, your experiencing pain with sex or experiencing leakages, constipation or a feeling of heaviness down below.
