More Notable Findings:
100% of the respondents who spoke about prolapse symptoms saw an improvement by Week 3 of using MUTU System
100% of respondents who couldn’t locate their pelvic floor muscles prior to starting MUTU, could do so by week 3
Of the respondents who experienced pain or discomfort during sexual intercourse, 90% had experienced an improvement by Week 9, and 93% by Week 12.
It was found as well that the number of women experiencing painful intercourse, or prolapse symptoms were higher at the early stage of motherhood than expected. Usually, these women are not referred until much later, or they don’t come forward at all.
This is important to note because by acknowledging and tackling these distressing postpartum symptoms earlier with MUTU, demand on University Hospital resources were reduced and women received needed care earlier than they would have.
Lucy Eggleton, Lead WH Physiotherapist said:
“The results from the trial have been really interesting as, although the women were referred predominantly with diastasis being their main postnatal symptom, many were also experiencing other distressing postnatal symptoms such as pelvic organ prolapse, incontinence or pain on resuming intercourse.
It has been great to see that so many women have found relief from these symptoms through participating in the MUTU program alongside physiotherapy and moving forwards this will be a program we are happy to support and refer our patients onto.”
“…In a time of such difficulty when so many new mothers have felt isolated and unsupported, it was brilliant to be able to team up with Wendy and the MUTU System to be able to run a clinical trial… We have been so impressed with the feedback and results, seeing women restored back to full health and function.”
