Exercises to reduce Diastasis Recti are those which actively restore, repair and strengthen the deep muscles of your core and pelvic floor.  If you have a diastasis recti gap of more than 2 finger widths, 6 weeks or more after your baby has been born,  your core remains unstable and you’ll struggle to get a stomach that lies flat 🙁 until you correct it. (But don’t worry even if it’s a LOT longer than 6 weeks after your baby was born, you can always improve it!)

Meet Stefanie who has recently completed the MUTU System 12 week programme, which includes exercises to reduce diastasis recti after her second baby. She started the programme at 9 weeks postpartum.

Here’s what she emailed with her photos…

“I’m in the last week of the mutusystem now so I thought you might appreciate some before and after pics of what I have managed to achieve with your help! I’m not sure how much I have lost in inches etc as I never measured myself, but I lost 8lbs and am now back in my pre-pregnancy clothes which is the main thing 🙂 The tummy’s not quite there yet but it’s a hell of a lot better and I no longer hate it. I will definitely keep at it!”

Clearly Stefanie didn’t have a great deal of weight to lose, and so her stomach shows very clearly the effects of diastasis recti and how committing to the MUTU System  exercises have corrected it over 12 weeks. Doesn’t she look fantastic??

Enjoy control and confidence in how your body looks, works, and feels. No more embarrassing leaks or discomfort. You deserve better and you can have it with MUTU System - the medically endorsed 12 week online recovery program for mothers.
