Pregnancy Can Cause Diastasis Recti, but You Can Reverse It Naturally

3 Things Doctor’s don’t tell you about your pelvic floor. Plus 1 Bonus Tip

Diastasis Recti affects every single pregnant woman in some way. In fact, 6 months after giving birth, 2 out of 3 women will suffer from this condition.


As your belly expands during pregnancy, it puts stress on the connective tissue (also known as fascia) in your abdomen. Visually speaking this is your “internal corset.” 

The expansion in your stomach from carrying a baby causes the fascia to stretch, as though it’s pulling apart.

When the fascia endures this much strain and pressure it becomes weak and can create many different health-related issues.

Most Common Symptoms of Diastasis Recti

As the recti muscles drift apart and cause a separation in your abdomen, it can cause any number of symptoms, such as these common ones:

  • A pregnant-looking pooch
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Bulging in the abdomen (from organs coming forward)
  • Urinary stress incontinence
  • Lower back pain
  • Gastrointestinal issues

Unfortunately, these symptoms can persist for many years unless action is taken to reverse them. 

Diastasis recti is the separation of the abdominal wall that is at least 2 fingers wide.

Reverse Diastasis Recti Naturally

With a series of safe, guided, and proven exercises, you can repair your abdominal fascia and strengthen your transverse muscles (aka your internal corset) to bring everything back together in its proper place.

And once you do, you can say goodbye to those pesky, limiting symptoms.
