Has anyone closes a large diastasis after more than a year postpartum

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I was wondering if anyone successfully closed a diastasis that was 4 fingers width after being more than a year postpartum.  If so what did you do to close it?  I have been doing that Tupler technique and it hasn't really helped me at all.  I have read about befitmom (Helene Byrne) and I was wondering if that was better or are the exercises all the same.  Thanks for any info!!!

I still had a 4-5 finger diastasis at 9-12 months postpartum (I can't remember when it started closing).  I got it down to less than a finger before I got pregnant again.  I used tupler and tried my best to avoid jack knifing.  I'm hoping to be far more successful far earlier this time around, and will put more effort into it as well.  Good luck.  I'm pretty sure it can be done. I'll be subbing here to see what other advice comes your way!

Thanks for the information.  I do the exercises but I think I amy strain my stomach too much.  Will have to work on that.
