WHAT IS A DIASTASIS?

Diastasis Recti refers to the separation of the outer-most abdominal layer - the Rectus or 6-pack muscle group - along the linea alba into left and right halves. The linea alba is the connective tissue which joins the different layers of abdominal muscles at the midline of the body – it often becomes more visible during pregnancy.

This separation is 100% normal and has to happen to make room for your growing baby.
