Diastasis Recti (Part 2)

** Update 9/13/12 **

I just received an email from Helene Byrne with BeFit-Mom.  She sent me this link to a fantastic resource: Diastasis Recti or Abdominal Separation.  Other than providing an overview of Diastasis Recti, this site includes a list of movements that should be avoided and videos of exercises that pregnant women can perform to lessen the severity of the condition.  I've been performing pilates-type transversus abdominus bracing exercises and pelvic tilts in supine, which are similar to the first 2 videos which show exercises in standing.  I will start the exercises in standing tonight!
