Mummy Tummy: Is it Fat or is it Diastasis Recti?

It is common to have a persistent ‘mummy tummy’ after giving birth. But when is it fat and when is it a deeper underlying issue?

Diastasis Recti Abdominis (DRA)

is a deeper muscular issue where the abdominal muscles are split apart. This often causes a persistent bulge that can hardly be slimmed down with exercising and weight loss solutions.

Common Symptoms & Signs of Diastasis Recti include:

  • A visible and persistent bulge or dome at the abdomen
  • Lower back pain & weak core muscles
  • Pelvic floor weakness & incontinence
  • Bloating in the tummy
  • Loose & saggy skin
  • Umbilical hernia (belly button pops outwards)

Pregnancy is the leading cause of DRA as the mother’s abdominal area stretches naturally to accommodate the growing uterus.
While Diastasis Recti could heal on its own within 6-8 weeks after giving birth, 50% of mummies continue to have this condition and may need to seek intervention.

Types of Diastasis Recti

A Diastasis Recti could range in severity depending on the width, depth and how large the separation is. While a physical assessement is recommended for a thorough understanding of each case, here are some examples of how a diastasis recti presents in its physical appearance.

FAQ about Diastasis Recti

Can it go away on its own?

In many cases, DRA can naturally go away on its own approximately 8 weeks following childbirth. However, if symptoms continue to persist, they are unlikely to go away on their own, and will require intervention.

How do I treat a DRA?

To treat DRA, the core team of muscles must be retrained to their optimal lines of performance through HIFEM technology and various exercises, allowing the body to regain its healthy coordination.

Can I prevent DRA?

To prevent DRA, recti muscles must be stabilised and strengthened early through customised strengthening exercises early in pregnancy, avoiding further debilitation and development of DRA.

What exercises should I avoid if I have Diastasis Recti?

The transverse abdominal muscle (TVA) is the deepest abdominal layer and can be imagined as the body’s internal corset. A strong TVA pulls the rectus abdominis together and is critical to DRA recovery.

Until the stretched soft tissues heal, working the other three muscles should be secondary to the TVA. As such, avoid straining these abdominal muscles as it will continue to pull the muscles apart at the centre.

These include actions such as:

  • Heavy lifting
  • Constipation
  • Oblique and straight crunches
  • Sit ups
  • Leg lowering exercises
  • Plank-type position
