NHS Trials Show Diastasis Recti Exercises Results from MUTU

Exercises for diastasis recti were trialled and proven in a 2020 ‘Lockdown’ MUTU System trial with NNUH NHS Trust. 87% of trial participants felt and saw noticeable improvements in signs and symptoms of diastasis recti in just 3 week of MUTU, and this increased to 90% at 6 weeks.

Check out the video below for a small glimpse into the exercises for diastasis recti that make MUTU System the original and proven diastasis recti exercise program.


Why is MUTU System so effective? First, we teach you to FIND and connect with your deep core muscles.

Then we teach you how to ENGAGE your transverse abdominis and pelvic floor muscles effectively and correctly, not only when you exercise, but also during every-day movements like lifting, sneezing or twisting. This is a natural, reactive movement which you won’t always have to do consciously! But to re-connect, to realign and to restore, we isolate at first… and then progress quickly to functional movement.

Then we STRENGTHEN the deep core in a way that will draw your rectus abdominis muscle (the six pack, outermost one, the one that has separated) back in together, helping to pull your belly back in… flatter and stronger. These are not isolated ‘ab only’ exercises!

The most effective way to get your body to the aesthetic and functional place you want it… is with whole body movement, gradually adding load (weight / body weight) to challenge and strengthen, and listening to your body signals as you go, to back-up, or move on.

MUTU System is for women who…

…want their bodies to look, feel and function better after having a baby. Even if it’s a long time since having a baby.

They want a core and a pelvic floor that work, that feel right and that do their job. It’s for women who want to lose weight after childbirth and keep it off. It’s the definitive, medically endorsed Mummy Tummy Workout System with diastasis recti exercises, created by postpartum fitness expert, Wendy Powell.

An international best-selling, industry acclaimed, award winning, holistic, realistic and supportive exercise and recovery program for Mums that really works.

A proven, truly effective, tried and tested solution for ‘mummy tummy’, diastasis recti, pelvic floor weakness and core that isn’t as functional or strong as you’d like it to be.
