Lots of women have concerns about diastasis after pregnancy. Right away, I want to state that checking yourself can be a bit tricky and pay extra caution to the 2 things we measure – depth and width. I’m mostly referencing width here as that is a bit more straightforward in how to check and grade.
Getting diastasis checked is one part of what should be a standard post partum check for every woman after delivery. Kegels, prolapse, perineum, tailbone position and diastasis should be standard for giving women the confidence to resume sex, exercise and feel good about their recovery. This is a minimum for helping women get back to that intangible “Feeling like themselves” again!
