What is a pregnancy MOT?
This is a check carried out from 12 weeks of pregnancy but is generally suited to the 3rd trimester. We would usually conduct a vaginal examination (with your consent) to assess your pelvic floor muscle function so that we can provide you with tailored advice on strengthening, if necessary.
We can also teach perineal massage, and talk about birth options and things that you can do that may reduce the risk of perineal tearing. We will also discuss early postnatal recovery so that you can be confident you are supporting your recovery.
