A diastasis is the widening of the gap between the 2 sections of your rectus abdominus, or ‘6 pack’ muscle that runs down the centre of your abs. The muscles naturally part during pregnancy to make room for your growing baby, but they don’t always come back together afterwards.
The connective tissue between the muscles has been stretched and weakened. This leaves your entire core muscle system compromised, with literally ‘a gap’ at the front of your abs.
To narrow the gap and regain optimal core function and strength, you will need to address how you move and breathe, how you workout, especially how you exercise your abs, as well as your nutrition and hormone balance. Traditional core exercises such as crunches, sit-ups or planks could make it worse, so foundation core exercises specifically designed for a mother’s body are recommended.
MUTU System is recommended by specialist Women’s Health Physical Therapists around the world as effective for women with diastasis recti. The MUTU program has been designed to address the physiological complexity of a body that has carried a baby, however, you gave birth, and however long ago you had your babies.
MUTU is a step by step, clearly guided and totally supported online program that helps you to heal a diastasis, strengthen your core and pelvic floor, and help you to feel confident, strong and sexy.
The result is a functional and strong core and a tummy that looks and feels more like you want it to, empowering you to get on with your life and get back to the activities you love. You deserve a body that works and that makes you feel good!
