Diastasis Recti

My Story of Recovery

As a Health & Fitness Coach I am passionate about educating woman about a condition called Diastasis Recti. Did you know that 2/3 of Woman have this condition. Having Diastasis Recti may have contributed further injury to my abdominal wall.

What is Diastasis Recti?

Diastasis recti (also known as abdominal separation) is commonly defined as a gap of roughly 2.7 cm or greater between the two sides of the rectus abdominis muscle. That is a lot of big words. To put it simply your six pack muscles are separated about 2 or 3 fingers. It can cause your belly to stick out because the space between your right and left abdominal muscles—which normally holds your belly in its place—has widened.
