I (Lori) am back with more diastasis recti tips! After my last video – How to modify and progress frontal exercises if you had diastasis recti – I received more requests for core tips. I love learning more about strengthening our deep core muscles ever since suffering my diastasis recti before, I know just how important good core strength is to getting rid of the mummy tummy.

Some of the moves in the video below are advanced, making it great for moms that have healed their diastasis (like me) but want to continue to keep their core strong.

Hi! I’m 18 months postpartum w my first baby and trying to get pregnant. I had a mild DR after pregnancy. I am 99% positive I purchased your retrain your core program but I can’t find the info anywhere. Is there a way to confirm before I repurchase? I recently hurt my back for the first time in my life. I think it may have to do w pregnancy and DR. It’s really frustrating as I’m an extremely active person. I’m so worried about this affecting my ability to be active and stay fit. Especially if I get pregnant again. Would love any advice you could give. Thx so much!
I would love to help you out Linsay. I will check your account and be in touch with you via email 🙂
