Case Study – Diastasis Recti and Abdominal Separation

Rebecca came to see Sarah ten and a half weeks after her second baby.  Her first birth had been natural and had left her with diastasis recti (abdominal separation).  She had discovered Hypopressives whilst living in Dubai and managed to reduce her gap.  Her second baby was delivered by C section and had left her with a considerable separation.

Rebecca knew that she needed to start her postnatal recovery as soon as possible to avoid causing any damage or other health issues. Now living in the UK, she got in touch with Complete Core Control and started her training with Sarah.

In her initial consultation, Rebecca had a five-finger gap above her navel and a four-finger gap below.  She totally understood that we needed to take a long-term approach to fixing her core and to get it functioning properly.  Rebecca was completely committed to her recovery and made time each day to focus on her exercise programme.

Not easy when you are a mum of two with a new-born baby.

In just eight months and only five one-to-one sessions with Sarah, Rebecca had reduced her gap down to just two fingers above the navel and one finger gap below.  Her posture improved, meaning there was less pressure in her abdominal cavity, her core tone and function had also benefited, meaning she could return to the gym and whatever other exercise she wanted to do and she also regained her body confidence feeling healthy and happy in her own skin.

Rebecca is proof that even busy mums can heal themselves with a little (five-minutes) time invested each day.
