Are you looking for a well-rounded, comprehensive program that can help you recover your core post pregnancy? Are you looking for a program that may help close your diastasis recti? There is a program that can help.

Today, now more than ever there is a growing awareness and women are interested in learning more about proper post pregnancy exercises. One out of every three women may suffer from diastasis recti.

What is diastasis recti? 

Diastasis recti is a term used to define a gap of about 2.7 cm or greater between the two sides of the rectus abdominis muscle, also known as your six pack muscles. Many women experience diastasis after pregnancy. This condition may worsen by doing the wrong exercises. The muscles effected by the diastasis help support your abdominal wall. Usually this presents itself as weak core strength and abdominal muscles that push out to compensate for space between the muscles. Some dysfunctions that may manifest are a mommy tummy or feeling that your abdominal wall will collapse when doing certain exercises.  The lack of support can also lead to other dysfunctions such as back pain or bladder issues, such as leakage.

What can help diastasis recti? 

Strengthening the abdomen and surrounding pelvic muscles through safe exercises normally result in a positive body function. If you have diastasis recti you have special needs when it comes to your core fitness.

It is important to avoid crunches and other exercises that may cause abdominal strain. Please don't sit up to get out of bed. Roll to your side first and then push yourself up.

The first step is to talk to your health care provider about your concerns. You know your body best and you know when it is not functioning the way it should. I am happy to work with your physician to ensure you are getting the information and exercises you need for your situation.

If you have just given birth but do not have diastasis recti your core muscles still need some time to heal and certain exercises should be avoided while it strengthens.

  I welcome your call to help you begin recovering your core post pregnancy.

What Clients Are Saying

I took the step to work with Joelene as an investment into my overall health after bringing three beautiful children into the world. Working with her gave me tools to strengthen my body to feel my best and keep up with my busy toddlers with confidence and enthusiasm. Her program allowed me to feel like myself again. Joelene quickly became a mentor, a friend and even supported me spiritually in a very unique time of my life. She recognized that I had limited time as a mom of three and even went above and beyond by coming to my home for appointments. We had frequent check ins to keep accountability high.  I am forever grateful for her program and would recommend her to anyone! She is more than a Certified Life Coach she is a builder of people!
