Postpartum Umbilical Hernia

curved line
40

Hernia, diastasis recti, and prolapse are all related to excessive intra-abdominal pressure, meaning too much pressure inside your abdomen and/or pelvis. Exercises for umbilical hernia and other issues stated, need to be carefully considered. 

This pressure has built up inside your body and has nowhere to go but outwards and downwards, and so eventually something has to give.

What is an umbilical hernia?

A hernia is when a part of your body that should be inside (like part of your intestine or bowel) pokes out through a weak spot in your abdominal wall. You will see a bulge, or an outie belly button, or a thumb-shaped protrusion. It may feel tender to touch, you may be able to gently push it back in sometimes and you will be more aware of it when you strain (lifting something heavy, or coughing or sneezing).

There are different types of hernia but the one most likely to affect women during or after pregnancy is an umbilical hernia. This means a hernia located at or near your belly button (umbilicus). An incisional hernia is another type of hernia which can sometimes occur after surgery of the abdomen (such as c-section).

An umbilical hernia will look and feel like: an outie belly button or protrusion, a soft bulge or a swelling, possibly with a dark tint to the skin in the area.

What causes a hernia?

A hernia, like diastasis recti or prolapse, is caused by excessive intra abdominal pressure. That’s pressure inside your abdomen and pelvis, that is pushing away (outwards). In the case of umbilical hernia, it pushes so hard that part of an organ or other tissue actually pushes right through the abdominal wall at the weakest point (at or near your belly button).

There are some factors which can make the pressure inside your abdomen high: multiple pregnancies (more than one baby at a time, and/or more than one pregnancy) especially if closely spaced.

Obesity can be a contributing factor, as can any straining, such as heavy lifting, or violent or prolonged coughing. But having more than a couple of babies, or moving heavy furniture around doesn’t cause hernia on their own. Your body is perfectly capable of doing those things if your core is working right.

Important factors

Whole body alignment, meaning the way you carry your body every day is important. As is the strength (or lack of strength) of your core muscles. Your core supports your entire abdominal and pelvic region. You need to address core function to minimise the risk and the effects of hernia. They need to be aligned correctly so that the pressure inside your abdomen is holding you in, not pushing away.

Your core muscles consist of:

  • Transverse Abdominis muscle (your deepest abdominal muscle)
  • Multifidus muscles of your spine
  • Your diaphragm (separates your lungs and the organs of your chest cavity from all the stomach parts and enables you to breathe)
  • Pelvic floor

Your core’s job is to contain the entire abdominal and pelvic cavity, and to regulate pressure within it, comfortably and without strain.

How do you fix a hernia?

You may need to have surgery, and whether or not this is the best course of action for your particular circumstance, is obviously a matter for you and your doctor. Doctors won’t always advise surgery to fix a hernia and sometimes they may suggest you leave it alone. Surgery is likely to be recommended if the hernia is causing pain or distress or is getting bigger.

Surgery to repair a hernia is common, whereby the surgeon will push the offending protruding part back where it belongs, and then sew up the hole. Some procedures use a surgical mesh to reinforce the abdominal wall. There are many good online medical resources, some of which I’ve listed below. There are certain adjustments and exercises for umbilical hernia that can be done to relieve symptoms.

Non-surgical techniques & exercises to relieve or prevent hernia

Adjust your alignment

The first thing you can do to relieve the pressure inside your abdomen is to stand correctly. This means try not to: Tuck your backside underneath you, or walk in high-heeled shoes all the time, which thrusts your pelvis out in front and strains your hip flexors and knees. Notice if you bend your knees all the time when you stand or stick your chest out or your chin up. All these factors could mean that your body isn’t in a straight line and it’s not holding itself up correctly. What that means for your midsection, is that you’re increasing the pressure within your abdomen. Learn more about how to stand right here.

Find your core

Next, you need to find, train and then strengthen your core muscles, which include your pelvic floor. This what the MUTU System program teaches you.

Try these exercises for umbilical hernia to find your core…

  1. Breath in and out gently
  2. On the Inhale, relax your tummy muscles and your pelvic floor. Let it all go.
  3. When you exhale, gently draw up and engage your pelvic floor and gently draw in your stomach. Tip: Imagine you are trying to pick up a grape or sucking a smoothie up through a straw with your vagina. That’s what this should feel like.
  4. Inhale again and let everything go. Your tummy and pelvic floor should relax.
  5. Exhale and engage your pelvic floor and stomach. Gently draw up your pelvic floor muscles and draw in your tummy.
  6. Repeat this breath sequence a few times each day. This is key to reconnecting with these muscles.

Stop doing…

certain exercises that strain and exert pressure on your abs and pelvic floor like sit ups or crunches. You need to not only learn to do the right ab exercises but also how to use your core effectively and optimally during every workout or movement. MUTU teaches you this too 🙂

Try this exercise instead…

  1. Lie on your back, feet flat on the floor.
  2. Exhale and engage your core and lift both knees up to 90°. You can gently hold onto your knees with your hands.
  3. Inhale and relax in that position.
  4. Exhale, engage your core and pelvic floor and drop one heel to the floor slowly.
  5. Inhale and relax and release, keeping your heel on the floor for support.
  6. Exhale and engage your core and pelvic floor and lift your heel back up off the floor and back to 90°.
  7. Repeat the steps with the other leg and do for a few rounds.
  8. Remember to exhale on exertion, and inhale and relax when you rest.

Be aware of…

how your body is positioned and working when you pick up your baby or toddler, when you haul a heavy basket of laundry or when you shut the car door with a karate kick whilst holding an infant seat and finding the keys in your pocket… Your core needs to be trained how to work right the whole time. Don’t panic – it can totally learn, it’s just forgotten and you need to re-teach and re-align yourself to work right and relieve the pressure

Start here

MUTU System is the online, medically recommended web app exercise and recovery program with step-by-step instructions and exercises that only take 15 to 20 minutes. It will help you strengthen your core and pelvic floor, lose weight, and feel confident and great again. MUTU focuses on strengthening and realigning your core and whole body posture to reduce this pressure, as well as relieve back pain, flatten your tummy and tone your pelvic floor.

Hi Tabatha, we regularly hear from women concerned with a hernia who are looking for information and advice, so please know you are not alone and we are delighted that you’ve found us! There are lots of types of hernia, with an umbilical hernia,(located near the belly button), being common during pregnancy or following childbirth. In some cases, your doctor may advise that surgery is required and in other cases recommend non-surgical techniques – like the ones Wendy has written about here.

MUTU’s core phases are gentle, helping you to strengthen your core and pelvic floor and reduce excess pressure through improving postural alignment. In the program, you’ll also find lots of ways to adapt and modify the program if you need to. It’s important to note that MUTU is an exercise program, not a medical treatment and no exercise program can or ever should claim to cure or ‘fix’ a hernia. MUTU core phases are recommended by Pelvic Physiotherapists around the world, and whilst likely to complement your care, these conditions should ALWAYS be diagnosed and treated according to your medical specialist’s advice.

Please read our full article here about following MUTU with Hernia and do not start this or any exercise program without individual medical diagnosis and advice. You undertake any exercise regime at your own risk – please see our full medical disclaimer here. We are always happy to discuss the content of our programs with medical professionals so that they can determine if the program is suitable for your personal situation.

I have pain in my knees from doing lunges and my orthopedic advised me not to do them, will the squats in the program be bad for my knees?

WendyMarch 1, 2019

Hi RefluxMD, There is a full video section of modifications for exercises in the program, along with detailed demonstrations of how to squat or lunge in good technique and to avoid injury.

Hi, I’m 12 weeks postpartum with my 2nd child. They’re only 20 months apart. I have an umbilical hernia from the first pregnancy, and it got more pronounced during the second. I also have diastasis recti. I still look pregnant. I haven’t started the MuTu system yet, but I was wondering when should I start seeing a difference after starting the program. My OBGYN said I’d probably have to have the hernia surgically repaired, but I’d like to avoid that if possible. Thanks for any help you can offer.

Wendy PowellAugust 12, 2017

Hi Crystal, yes MuTu will be able to help you but I would also strongly recommend you follow the program alongside complimentary care from a specialist womens’ health physical therapist to help you adapt or moderate as appropriate to your personal situation (how to find one here https://mutusystem.com/referral-to-a-womens-health-physiotherapist

Hi I am 28 weeks pregnant. I had an umbilical hernia when I was a child and had it removed about the age of 5.. I went to the doc and can’t have a cat scan due to my pregnancy … I have had pain before but this “phantom pain” from the hernia site and extends to my side is absolutely HORRIBLE! I can’t stand or walk .. even breathing hurts… I woke up about 30 min ago in pain and took Tylenol.. I don’t know if my child is where my hernia was or what to do the pain is getting unbearable and there is NOTHINF I CAN DO

Wendy PowellMay 10, 2017

Hi Lakin,
I’d recommend you ask your doctor for a referral to a Women’s Health Physiotherapist. Find out more about being referred here: https://mutusystem.com/referral-to-a-womens-health-physiotherapist


Karina AviñaFebruary 27, 2017

Hi! I got diastasis recti and a small umbilical hernia after having my daughter who is 4 months now. I have been doing a few exercises to relieve symptoms and my hernia is barely visible. Should I go through with the surgery to repair the hernia or should I wait until I have healed from diastasis? Thanks

Wendy PowellMarch 8, 2017

Hi Karina. Unfortunately we cannot advise either way. We are’t medically trained therefore you need to speak with your doctor or specialist about the best course of action for you. Above in this article are non-surgical techniques but you would need to get the okay from your doctor first.

Can a women still have a baby after her hernia in her navel has been removed


momsbellyprobApril 30, 2015

I had an emergency appendectomy and before surgery I told the surgeon that my umbilical hernia had disappeared and I was concerned. I had the surgery and the surgeon did a patch up of the fascia and sewed me up however because it was at the same time of the appendectomy he did not place a mesh, to avoid possible infection. So, after the surgery I felt like a new person. My abdomen looked so different and my belly button was back (it used to look like it had a tongue hanging out, pardon the harsh reality) Anyway, immediately after the surgery when I went home I was walking up the stairs at home and I noticed I could breathe so much easier, I wasn’t as out of breath as before. I hadn’t lost any weight in the surgery and there wasn’t any cosmetic work done. I am currently overweight but not so much to make me as winded as I had been prior to the surgery and I feel like when he fixed my hernia it pulled all of my abdomen back in I didn’t have that heavy weight hanging so I could breathe easy. My question is, can an umbilical hernia cause breathing issues? The surgeon said that his stitching was a temporary job for the hernia because I would need to have a mesh placed to prevent it from happening again. Unfortunately 2 months after the surgery my hernia is poking through again and I can feel it fall, the hanging tongue look is back and it’s harder to breathe again. Could this hernia and the difficulty breathing be related? (I have had 3 pregnancies with huge babies and the hernia was due to the pregnancies, most recent birth was 2 years ago and that was the one that did me in) Your thoughts, advice would be appreciated.

mom4life4girlsMarch 21, 2015

I have 4 kids ranging in age from 20-5 years, got the hernia with kid #3 now age 13, forgot I had it until my last pregnancy, Now 5 years later, it doesn’t majorly bother me, it is difficult to do some stomach exercises so I have to be aware, but for the most part, it is an in-y again but no longer “cute” looks like a blinking eye lol. I would like to have it fixed, or at least the blinking, but the doctors always say just wait, and no one but my man sees it, so as I loose 20 years and 4 kids worth of baby weight, if it “blinks” worse I might have it done just so the skin can breath properly, not so much for the hernia, because like I said, I keep forgetting it is there.

Twin MamaMarch 11, 2015

My OBGYN suggested my umbilical hernia would simply go back down after the twins were born. They are now 6mths old and while I have zero pain, I still have an ugly protruding belly button. Is there hope it may still go down, if so, how long does it usually take? And if not, should I be looking into surgery even if there is no pain involved?

Hi, I have two children and was completely fed up and depressed that I still looked 6 months pregnant. A holiday in Disney land was the last straw, where I was advised in 5 different rides that I should not continue in my condition! I know the staff were only doing their job, but it did ruin the holiday for me 🙁 my wonderful GP referred me for physio that didn’t gave any effect. I returned to my GP some months later and after she examined me again, she referred me to an abdominal surgeon with diastis recti/ possible hernia. The surgeon confirmed a ventral/umbilical hernia. I had surgery December 2013 and all is going well and healing nicely. Now that my abs are back in the correct place, Would your MuTusystem be good for me to now tone up my core? Obviously I wouldn’t want to undo the good work of the surgery.
Thanks for your time and feedback

I have all three issues listed in this article. Took a lot of doctors,3 years and feeling “crazy” to get some answers. First time I’ve seen anything written will all of these put together. Thank you.
I have been running before,during & after my two girls were born. Stopped any ab work and boot camp like stuff to have have anymore damage done.
abs are very weak now and lower back pain at times,I would like to start this new class called Pure Barre that is low impact,core work and stretching (all which I NEED) Your thoughts?
I thought that if I at least made the muscles strong it could “hold” what “things” it is holding in better,lol.
Not sure why pregnancies (had it with first then C-section with 2nd) caused this. Not overweight,workout…bad luck I guess! But got two healthy babies 😉
Thanks for any info.

valJuly 15, 2014

Sorry to butt in on your question as to why a c section and normal pregnancy would cause this – a hormone is released during pregnancy and birth that relaxes the ligaments and tendons throughout the body. So, when the tendons are weak and the muscles aren’t up to par after birth, this tends to cause a jumble for the organs. I’m not sure if Mrs. Powell suggests this in her program ( I’m going to try the program out after I talk with my doc) but the addition of collagen type 1&3 and glucosamine with chondroiton would help to restrengthen ligaments and tendons along with proper exercise. Wish I had followed my own advice, but I didn’t want to take any supplements for fear of what it may do to my breast milk.
