What is Diastasis Recti Anyway?
In pregnancy, the muscles of your abdomen separate to make room for your baby. When they don’t come back together, you end up with diastasis recti. One-third of women have some level of abdominal separation one year after delivery.
The weakness caused by this separation causes other parts of your body to work harder, leaving you vulnerable to pain and injury.
Conventional ab exercises like planks and crunches can put more pressure on your weak spots, and make a diastasis worse.
With proper movement and proper alignment, most women can improve their core health within a few weeks…even if she had her baby decades ago.
