What is Diastasis Recti?

Diastasis recti are the partial or complete separation of the rectus abdominis, or “six-pack” muscles, which meet at the midline of your stomach. Diastasis recti in pregnancy happen because the uterus stretches the muscles in the abdomen to accommodate your growing baby. It is very common during and following pregnancy.

This can affect anyone, including newborn babies and men. In some cases, it can result from lifting heavy weights incorrectly or performing excessive or unsafe abdominal exercises.

Diastasis Recti Symptoms

What is commonly seen as a symptom of diastasis recti is a pooch or bulge in your stomach, this can be visible especially when you strain or contract your abdominal muscles. Additional symptoms include lower back pain, poor posture, constipation, and bloating.

What Causes Diastasis Recti?

Excessive inner-abdominal pressure causes diastasis recti. When you have diastasis recti during pregnancy, your abdominal muscles and connective tissues are stretched out from your expanding uterus. They’re helped along by the pregnancy hormones relaxin and estrogen. Pushing during delivery can also lead to diastasis recti. Experiencing some abdominal separation during and following pregnancy is expected.
