Diastasis Recti. The Good, the bad and the solution.

Put simply, the two muscles that run down the front of your stomach have lengthened and separated during pregnancy. It’s very common and its easy to rectify.

DO: Regular abdominal exercises

DO NOT: start abdominal crunches!

Try this:

Pelvic tilts - Contract the abdominals and tilt the pelvis forward shortening the gap between your hips and your ribs.

Do this as many times a day as you can, in any position.

The abdominal muscles will slowly start to shorten and you can begin further strengthening exercises.
