So What the Heck is Diastasis Recti and How do I Know if I Have It?

Let's talk about Diastasis Recti:

Diastasis Recti is a pretty common condition that can occur during pregnancy, after birth, or can even be caused by rapid weight gain or a large amount of visceral fat. The right and left sides of the Rectus Abdominis (what you know as your abs) muscle spread apart at the body’s midline causing a gap of 2 or more finger widths apart. This interrupts the integrity of the abdominal muscles.
