More diastasis recti myths than you can shake a stick at‪.‬ The Healthy Post Natal Body Podcast

    • Fitness

This week I'm talking about some silly, inaccurate and downright stupid things I have had sent my way this week.

Courtesy of Jess, without whom I would have significantly less to talk about and get loads less done, I bring you the following myths;

1; Diastasis Recti is a life long condition.
2; You can completely close the gap between your stomach muscles.
3; Having a gap between your stomach muscles ALWAYS means you have diastasis recti.

4; A flat stomach means you don't have diastasis recti.
5; You can never get a flat stomach again post-partum.
6; Some people can never get a flat stomach no matter what they do.

7; You should avoid twisting your body if you have diastasis recti.
8; Some exercises will always make diastasis recti worse.
9; Some exercises will heal ANY diastasis recti.

10; Diaphragmatic breathing is the correct way to breathe to heal diastasis recti.

And, of course, diastasis recti can not be healed with exercise and diet.
