  • Do you feel low back pain or pelvic pain?
  • Notice a feeling of weakness when trying to lift your baby?
  • Do you leak when you Cough, Sneeze or Jump?
  • Is there a feeling of bulging, either in the abdomen or in the pelvic floor?

Unsure whether you have diastasis recti?

Dr. Jessica Papa

Diastasis Recti is a common condition that affects many women during the childbearing years. However, diastasis recti isn’t something that women have to simply accept as part of motherhood.

When the abdominal muscles separate, they don’t work as well with the pelvic muscles. The pelvic floor muscles are part of the core, so they work along with the deep abdominal muscles, the lower back muscles, and the respiratory diaphragm. If one of those components isn’t working correctly, then it can harm the pelvic floor.


You deserve a lot of TLC after baby. Your body does, too, as it worked so hard to bring your new bundle of joy into the world. If you have diastasis recti or want to learn how to prevent it during pregnancy, Arancia PT can help, with no physician’s referral necessary to get started.
