Unfortunately I hear time and time again that Mum’s are dissatisfied with their postnatal “check up”, which to many has been little more than “What contraception are you using now?”.
I appreciate that GP’s are already stretched beyond their means, but new Mum’s have enough to worry about; having unanswered questions about their physical health and what their bodies are capable of, does not help.
Fit Mums Check Up- Why do it:
The Fit Mum’s Check up is recommended for all Mum’s from 6 weeks postpartum.
Most women, after having a baby, have weakness in either the tummy or pelvic floor, which creates decreased core strength and instability. This can lead to back and pelvic pain, as well as bladder and bowel weakness. A full assessment and rehab programme will help the pelvic floor and abdominals to recover, regain strength and reduce the risk of long term problems.
Fit Mums Check Up- What it involves:
The Fit Mum’s Check Up tests the muscles of your pelvic floor and abdomen, as well as any physical problems arising from birth, and provides a safe optimal postnatal recovery programme designed specifically for you.
The Fit Mums Check Up is available now for £45
For follow on treatment, and continue to monitor your body, there is the option of a postnatal rehab programme of 4 x 30 minute sessions (£100) or each session individually at £30.
