Overview

Diastasis recti abdominis (DRA) or abdominal separation is a normal change in the abdominal wall that occurs in pregnancy and persists for a large proportion of postpartum people. With increasing awareness of DRA has come increased fear and confusion about what DRA means, how to manage it, and what it means for your active postpartum life. We'll lay out the most up to date research about DRA to bust common myths and empower you with the confidence to navigate postpartum movement and exercise.
