What is Diastasis Recti?

The rectus abdominis has two sides and there is a gap between them. Ab Separation is know as Diastasis recti, which is where the gap widens due to a split in the linea alba. It is sometimes called simply DR or DRA, and you may know it as ‘mommy tummy’ or ‘baby belly.’

If you have diastasis recti, your tummy might look like you are still pregnant, even if it has been months or years after having your baby. It often looks like a dome in the tummy, and it is usually more noticeable when you move from lying down to sitting up.
