Diastasis Recti and Abdominal Separation Case Study

Diastasis Recti and Abdominal Separation Case Study

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.

Mummy Rebuild – Online Course, Downloadable PDF and Video Access


The next step to improving your core, posture and general wellbeing as a new mummy.

This is our postnatal course tailored especially for new mums.

We regularly get asked what we would advise as to the first thing to do after having your baby with regards to exercise. Well firstly remember you don’t want to be starting a fitness routine before six weeks post vaginal birth or 12 weeks post-c-section.

We truly believe for our postnatal mummies that our Mummy Rebuild Course is the best option for you to ensure you fix your body correctly, work on bringing those tummy muscles back together, slowly re-building the strength in the abdominals and gaining the strength back to keep up with a growing baby with ease.

Our bespoke 6-week body rebuilding formula uses a combination of exercise techniques including Hypopressives, Pilates and functional fitness to help you start making changes to your life as soon as you are ready.

You will be taken step by step through this training with comprehensive videos to demonstrate specific techniques that reduce the pressure in the body, gently show you the way back from having your baby, build strength in the musculoskeletal system and fix any pelvic floor weakness or abdominal separation you may have unlike any other fitness programme currently out there.

Mummy Rebuild is tailored specifically for you, by us based on years of experience to really provide you with the most up to date information and strategies to help you safely get back to your health and fitness goals.
