Diastasis Recti Info Session 

Diastasis Recti is the separation of the rectus abdominis muscles (the outer layer of abdominal muscles that form the “6-pack”). Diastasis Recti is very common during pregnancy and the postnatal period. The abdominal muscles naturally stretch during pregnancy to accommodate your growing baby, but, due to many factors, the muscles may not fully close on their own after birth.

This 60-minute interactive chat will include:

  • Ways to prevent diastasis recti during pregnancy + exercises you can do after birth to heal
  • How to assess for DR during and after pregnancy
  • Movements + exercises you should AVOID  to prevent worsening the gap
  • Techniques to begin activating + engaging your tranverse abdominis (deep abdominal muscles) that run laterally across your waist

This workshop is great for:

  • pregnant people
  • postnatal people (whether you gave birth recently or YEARS ago!)
  • birth professionals who would like to learn techniques to help their clients

 

Core Restore 3-Week Series

This comprehensive, 3-week series is for postpartum people who are ready to reconnect with their abdominal muscles and help repair diastasis recti and other common issues. We’ll blend barre, pilates, stretching, and functional fitness into a 1-hour full body workout.  This class is appropriate for all postnatal stages-whether six weeks, six years, or six decades postpartum!

“Having delivered twice at The Birth Center at LWC, I couldn’t be happier with my experiences. I felt so cared for and safe there. Welcoming, comforting, trustworthy—the combination of the homey feel I wanted with professional, experienced midwives and nurses let me relax, knowing I was in good hands. The midwives, always there when we needed them, also seemed to know just when to give us space. When pushing became difficult during my second birth, the midwife quickly assessed the situation and helped me get things back on track. I can’t imagine birthing anywhere else.”
