diastasis rectii is a separation of the left n right abdominal muscles. its common in pregnant n postpregnant condition. if u feel there is a pouch formation on ur tummy when u strain- get it checked asap to see if its present n how severe it is.

Sonali Shivlani

Lie on your back. Fold your legs such that the knees are pointing toward the ceiling. Now do a small sit up. Feel for your belly button and just above the belly button try to feel the gap between the abdominal muscles. If the gap is more than a finger you have diastasis recti and you will need to do some exercises to help correct the same. You can. check out my videos on this on home Veda pregnancy channel on you tube.
