A diastasis update

My posts about diastasis (especially the first one) continue to get crazy traffic everyday because moms everywhere are asking “What is wrong with my tummy, and how do I fix it?” As the traffic rolls in, so do the questions. Most recently everyone has been asking the biggest questions of all: “So did the MuTu System work? Are you healed?”

I am ecstatic to tell you that my diastasis has gone from a 2.5-finger-wide DEEP gulley to a 1-finger-wide much more shallow separation. My core is stronger, my back pain is pretty much gone, and my clothes are fitting better.

It’s working!

I have even recently been able to start back on the couch-to-5k running program with no pain. No pain. 

If you’ve read through all of my diastasis posts, you know I did tons of research before making the decision to go with this program. I’m so happy to tell you now from personal experience that it works.

Have you tried the MuTu System? How is it working for you? Any other success stories out there?

    very cool, I totally need help in this area! I’ll be forwarding to my triathlon loving little sister as well who complains of diastasis.

    Before and after photos? How long have you been doing mutu?

    • InspiredRD April 17, 2014 at 9:33 am

      I’ve been doing it off and on for about a year now. Off and on because I’m horrible at commitment. I’m sure it would work faster if I was better at doing it every day. Before and after photos wouldn’t show much, mine wasn’t as noticeable on the outside as most, just noticeable on the inside, does that make sense?

    Thanks for the update! Do you have any pictures of what diastasis typically looks like?

    I’m so happy to have found this blog. I’ve had 3 pregnancies and 3 C-sections. I now have terrible diastasis! I look at least 3-4 months pregnant all the time. And if I put a bite of anything in my mouth, my belly sticks out worse. I feel like your description of symptoms was you recapping exactly what I’m going through. I will definitely be reading more thoroughly through your blog for a helpful solution. Thank you so much for this post!
