Many postpartum mamas have trouble with their core muscles after birth. Diastasis recti, the separation of the abdominal muscles during pregnancy, can lead to a belly pooch that just won’t go away.
Another common complaint is having weak pelvic floor muscles that leads to a leaky bladder and contributes to chronic constipation, among other problems.
If you are feeling like your body has betrayed you and think you are suffering from diastasis recti, a weak pelvic floor, or hip issues, I’ve got the perfect thing for you.
