diastasis recti, abdominal muscle separation Abdominal muscles – Your abs have been stretched to their limits during pregnancy and will need to rest before they are ready to be reintroduced to regular exercise. A pelvic support that includes abdominal support will be helpful to keep the muscles from further strain while they heal.

Some women experience extreme muscle separation—diastasis recti and this will need special care with targeted exercise to rehabilitate and in extreme cases surgery may be required.
