Diastasis Recti

Exercises for Diastasis Recti or Tummy Gap

Diastasis Recti or tummy gap
So you have a Diastasis Recti, where there is a gap running in the muscles (more then 2 fingers gap, 2 or less is fine) down the front of your tummy. What now?

We want to try, with gentle exercise, to correct the gap (bring it back together). Why? Because Diastasis Recti is associated with a weak core including week pelvic floor and can lead to a lack of strength & stability in the entire pelvic region & midsection. Weakness in these areas could contribute to back pain, bad posture, pelvic floor dysfunctions, hernia, as well as potentially leaving you with a tummy that looks like you are still months pregnant aka THE Mummy Tummy.
