I have it. My friend said she had it and got rid of it. She told me to wear a brace on my belly for the first 6-8 weeks after giving birth and it will help... its worth a try! lol

It depends on your gap.



Mine is like three inches, its not going away without surgery. I follow Lindsay Brin's core workouts that are specifically targeted for diastasis recti but I've only been doing it for 4 weeks, it can take 12 weeks to see a difference. Of course it all depends on the level of muscle separation you have. Sometimes it cannot be fixed without medical attention.

If you have an ace bandage that'll work. Do planks like crazy...you'll start to see results if you're consistent.
