Diagnosis: Diastasis Recti
Did you know that 1 out of 3 women have a separation of their abdominal muscles during and after pregnancy? Did you know that in many cases these muscles do not return to normal? Finally, did you know that traditional crunches and planks can only make this separation worse leading to a "pouch" in a mama's lower abdominals?
I didn't either.
But, last week, I got a text from a girlfriend with a proposal/request for a post related to Diastasis Recti (a.k.a. the mommy tummy).
So I knew it was time to learn more...and share it with everyone I could!
