21 DAY DIASTASIS RECTI WORKOUT CHALLENGE: https://toneandtighten.activehosted.com/f/14




Women must rehab their bodies after having a baby. Period. Postpartum rehabilitative exercises after having a baby need to look a lot different than your “typical“ exercises you perform in your workouts before having a baby. Performing those “typical“ exercises too aggressively too soon can actually do more harm than good. In this video, you will learn which exercises you should avoid after having a baby, which exercises you should do instead, and how to properly rehabilitate your body after having a baby.

What Is Diastasis Recti?
Diastasis recti is a condition where the connective tissue that joins the two halves of the rectus abdominis (“6-pack” muscle) stretches out and can even tear. This is an incredibly common condition with pregnant and postpartum women.

In spite of the advice that many postpartum women receive at their follow-up visits, this condition is not “normal” and will not always “go back on its own”. Further – surgery is definitely not your only (not should it be your first) option to repair it.

In fact performing the RIGHT exercises the RIGHT way at the RIGHT time while avoiding the WRONG exercises that aggravate this condition have been proven to be an incredibly effective means of healing this common condition.

In my experience, not many women know about this condition and even fewer of them get checked for it at postpartum care visits. The purpose of this video is to educate you about this condition and give you some guidelines that you can follow while you’re exercising after having a baby.

Whether it’s been 6 weeks, 6 months, 6 years, or even 16 years since you’ve had your child, these principles will still help you achieve the goals you have set for yourself.


I set out to create the most comprehensive postpartum fitness plan available. The Mommy Tummy Fix is centered around helping you to achieve the two most-common goals that I hear about from moms – 1) Flatten my stomach and 2) Lose this baby weight.

This is accomplished through the RIGHT core exercises to activate the right muscles, clean eating, and regular low-intensity cardio. All are addressed in the Mommy Tummy Fix program and you can learn more at MommyTummyFix.com.

Vivian Joseph says:

How do I know I have the diastasis recti after birth? And are there things to do to prevent you from having it during pregnancy?

Kyoko says:

What if you had a hernia mesh repair, then gave birth and still have the bump appearing? (I did a catscan & it still not showing up my hernia but the bump approve my belly button is still there). So with that said, is this still safe to do?

Tami Garbarino says:

What about for women who have had a c-section? Do they have to wait longer before returning to core exercises?
