Post Natal Abdominal Separation Abdominal separation, medically known as Diastasis of rectus abdominus (DRA),  is tearing or pulling of the two vertical muscles of your abdominal wall, which when put under significant strain or load, they can divide. This causes a weakness of the abdominal wall which can cause a number of problems, such as a abdominal hernia, back pain, pelvic pain, incontinence.  If left untreated or not treated correctly, this separation can get larger and more difficult to correct without surgery. It is advised to come in 6 weeks post-partum for a check. We can help during pregnancy by specific abdominal taping. Post pregnancy we will assess the degree of separation and help guide you through a progressive strengthening program to help narrow this separation.

Pelvic Incontinence Leakage is not normal and can be treated, 1 in 3 women post natally will have some leakage whether it’s when coughing or during exercise. Most of the time it can be fixed with simple exercises/pelvic floor retraining. We can assist this strengthening with pressure biofeedback.
