Wow what happened to my tummy? It looks like it's torn in half and not working.
This is very common after pregnancy, It's called Diastasis Rectus Abdominis (DRA). Where the tummy muscles have stretched and separated during and after pregnancy leaving you feeling weak and flabby. What can you do about it?
DRA: This is where the fascia ( I like to think of it as a piece of glad wrap over the top and in between the muscles holding them all together) and connective tissue between your Rectus Abdominis (6 pack muscles) has stretched and weakened leaving a gap between your muscles.
So why is this a problem?
What NOT to do!
