Diastasis Rectified

My journey to heal postpartum diastasis recti

Getting settled


Note: getting rid of your computer desk when moving may lead to leaving your computer in the box for a couple weeks. I am dragging it out onto the bedroom floor today to let you all know that I am still here and so grateful for the comments since my last post. I am going to take your advice (looking at you, Mimi!) and report back on what I learned. I will also be doing my repeat Week 6 post with DR measurement next week (I’m behind, but not shaming myself about it. Sometimes moving and a sick baby and a bag of tortilla chips gets in the way of our goals, but that doesn’t mean they’re lost!).

This morning I was given a strong dose of perspective and a renewed gratitude for the body I’m in and what it’s done for me. Also, tears. Check out this video of disabled men and women reacting to mannequins being made in their image:

Let’s move forward with the knowledge that we are beautifully made and valuable humans, no matter our shape.

I am charting my progress as I recover from a diastasis recti and get back to an active lifestyle.

  1. Hi there!

    Thank you for tracking your progress thru this blog. Its strangely comforting to know there are others going thru the same struggle as I am. I just purchased the mutu system online program. Haven’t really started the exercise yet.

    I do see you’ve made great progress by looking at the pictures. Did you lose inches as well?


    • Hey Sree! Thanks for stopping by. I’m sorry about the delay in getting to your comment. I do believe I’ve lost inches but I confess that I don’t measure myself so I can’t be sure. I can wear clothing that I couldn’t a few months ago, so that is encouraging! How have you been doing with the program?

  2. I miss your posts!
    I hope the holidays were nice for you and yours and that your new year has begun with continued steady progress.

    • Thank you, Alice! You inspired me to put myself back out here and I’m working on a draft right this minute. I won’t finish before baby’s nap is over, but I do have some updates to share. 🙂 Thank you, thank you!
