It sure feels like everywhere you look someone’s talking about diastasis recti.
And with so much information out there it can feel overwhelming and anxiety-boosting.
There are so many ideas on…
What to do.
What not to do.
What “healed” even means.
How to even check it or assess it in the first place.
It’s honestly not something to freak out about – unless it’s not healing well (you’ve got a deep, big gap beyond 2ish finger-widths and your linea alba isn’t responding well to be challenged – more on that here) or it’s impacting your life/exercise life in some way.
But I get that there’s so much (scary) information out there about diastasis (and how “ruined” your body is) that you’re wondering what you can do to help ensure your abs heal, and heal well.
So I thought it would be helpful to share what I’ve been doing post-baby #2 to help my own core and pelvic floor recover.
