How Do I
Recognize Diastasis Recti?
You will develop a deep gap or space below your navel and will notice a mound protruding at your midline. Your Belly might look like a 5 month pregnant belly.
While some mothers discover they have it during pregnancy, others don’t find out until after birth. It happens to mothers whether they deliver their babies naturally or with a cesarean section.
Risks of developing Diastasis are greater in women who:
- Have twins or more complications of abdominal separation in a prior pregnancy.
- Have a smaller build.
- Have an inclined back or weak abdomen.
- Genetics are also a factor in predisposing some women to this condition.
