Post Natal Mummy Check


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.

Once we have had a chat, I will assess your:

  • Posture
  • Breathing
  • Movement of your spine and hips
  • Check for any tummy muscle separation
  • Core strength
  • Healing process of C-section or episiotomy scars
  • Pelvic floor muscles

The pelvic floor muscle check may include an internal assessment but this will be discussed with you first and will only be conducted if you are in agreement.

Following your post-natal assessment, we will discuss what you need to help you on your post-natal journey. This will be individual to you but may include:
