Diastasis Recti Awareness Day

June 11, 2017 10:00 am - June 11, 2017 12:00 pm 920 Baltimore Ave Suite 100, Kansas City, MO 64105, USA

Join us for a free workshop! This workshop is open to the public, for women who are currently pregnant or postpartum. Women’s health educators and providers, doula’s, midwives and physical therapists are also encouraged to attend.

What is it
Diastasis Recti is a painless splitting of the abdominal muscles that frequently occurs during pregnancy or labor but diastasis recti is also present in men and children. We want more people to become aware of this condition as it not only leads to aesthetic repercussions but can compromise your core and pelvic floor strength. This can exacerbate low back pain and incontinence.

What will you learn
Learn how to prevent Diastasis Recti and healing exercises to help avoid making it worse. We will also teach you how to discern if you have Diastasis Recti on your own body.
