Love your DR series! I absorb all the information I can and inform as many mom friends about it. I really wish it was talked about more in the healthcare world. So many women don’t even know they have this. I didn’t know until I found you!

These are great! I have a ?…So I did close my gap between each baby (Thanks to you!! ❤️) but if you have multiple pregnancys back to back should I also advoid doing these moves during pregnancy? Specifically the plank position because i thought in one or maybe two of the pregnancy workouts on the pregnancy plan we do burpees and are in the plank position is this something I should not do to prevent DR since I got pregnant at 4 month pp? (Hopefully this helps others too I've seen alot of moms especially in the 12ppp have babies back to back to back) 😊

Thanks so much! Currently pregnant with my second and realising the DR from the previous pregnancy 2ys ago hasn't healed at all! I'm only 8w pregnant and already look like 4-5months. So after this video it's off to your DR workout! So glad I found your channel!

Hey Ashley! Can you do a video on how to prevent DR during pregnancy? Which exercises to avoid while pregnant? It took me so long to close my gap after my first 2 pregnancies. Now with my 3rd pregnancy I want to be really careful.

Finally someone is talking about DR and what to watch out for. I would love you to show modifications for plank or push up or what about straight leg dead lifts. Would love a video with more practical tips. Thanks for everything!

I just signed up for your Glow Body PT yesterday and started yesterday. I woke up (good) sore in my midsection. I did 4 sessions with a postpartum PT and did not feel like this with the exercises they recommended. You're instructions are so clear. I can actually tell and feel what I should be working on while preforming the excercises. Money is tight for me right now but I am so glad I spent the money. Cannot wait to complete the next 12 weeks. Looking forward to feeling strong again.

I finished your 12 Week Post Pregnancy Plan and finally closed my Gap. Thank you so much for this program. I had an 4 finger DR after Birth, 2 fingers since 6 week checkup postpartum.
Now i'm wondering which Ab Exercise to do to activate the straight abdominals? Are there any exercises to do first and to not open the Gap again?

Thanks for this video. I was just thinking about cycling pay pregnancy and wondering if the normal cycling position would make diastasis recti worse. And you answered for me right on your video. What about lap swimming? Will it make diastasis recti worse, or is ok to do once your cleared by your doctor to exercise again?

Thank you for all your great info! It’s so hard to find this anywhere. Are these the same positions you should avoid while pregnant to prevent DR?

I have a 12 year old and 7 year old, and my gap has appeared to grow wider in the last couple years. After watching this, I wonder if that is because I have been planking for All the years after each pregnancy. Is it too late to repair now? I'm desperate to get this fixed once and for all! I'm overall pretty fit: always ran, some weights, planked, (uugghh), and 41 years old. Too late to repair?

This was super helpful but I was wondering how long this goes on for? I know we want to close our gap but does it ever fully close or can’t it take a very long time?

Thank you so much for your detailed explanations on these exercises. I am 10 years postpartum and still have so much coning on most of the exercises you demonstrated! I’ve been making my job harder for years and had no idea, nor did anyone mention at any yoga or fitness class I’ve attended. Could you please do a video on what modifications or exercises to focus on for someone like me with a 10 year old DR gap that cones quite a bit still. (I don’t do rowing or cycling, just walking, body weight and a bit of kettlebells)

I just finished your "Hardcore Mommy Workouts" for prenatal first trimester and it has many of these exercises that are bad for diastasis recti (bosu ball knee tucks, v-ups, planks etc). Do these exercises cause DR? Or are they only bad if you have DR already?

I want to make sure I'm doing exercises that prevent DR as I move through my pregnancy. Can you clarify?

After DR is healed, is it safe to do these exercises? (ie. planks, crunches, etc.)

How do you know how diastasis recti is healed ? How long does it take? Are any arm exercises bad for diastasis besides pushups ?
