Diastasis Recti

The separation of your abdominal muscles during and following pregnancy.

How common is Diastasis Recti?

Diastasis recti is very common during and following pregnancy. About 60% to 70% of women will get it.

what causes diastasis recti?

Increased intra-abdominal pressure is a leading factor behind diastasis recti. When you’re pregnant, your abdominal muscles stretch to accommodate your growing uterus, which causes the connective tissue to become thin. Over time a partial or complete separation of the rectus abdominis can occur.
