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.

Yoga for Healing Diastasis Recti and your Pelvic Floor

I would like to introduce you to Catherine Middlebrooks, founder of B r B Yoga. She is a postpartum yoga instructior and postpartum corrective exercise specialist. She helps postpartum mamas rebuild their post-baby body through yoga and corrective exercise, so you can be strong and capable to do whatever it is that you want to do.

I got the oppurtunity to interview Catherine on how to heal diastasis recti, as well as how to correct pelvic floor issues like leaking when you sneeze!😱😱😱
