Dr. Ashley has been successfully helping mothers heal their Diastasis Recti for years. Diastasis Recti is a natural occurrence during pregnancy; abdominal muscles lengthen as our bodies change and adapt to our growing baby. Our bodies go through postural changes during pregnancy which need to be addressed in order to heal our core and prevent or heal further pelvic floor dysfunctions. Healing our diastasis goes way beyond just addressing our pelvic floor and deep core muscles. We are going to work through all the components that truly allow moms to regain their core postpartum andheal their diastasis once and for all.
Week 1- 360 Breathing
- Have you ever noticed postpartum that your rib cages are wider and you don’t fit into your bra size from pre pregnancy?
- Do you still have that lower mom pooch even though you had pelvic floor therapy, started core exercises or despite losing pregnancy weight from nutrition and cardio work?
- Why 360 breathing is the core of healing Diastasis
- Learn how to control intra abdominal pressure (from belly breathing and positions) that often leads to delayed healing of diastasis.
- Retraining and timing our inhales & exhales with our core and pelvic floor in funcitonal ways
- How to create more spine and rib mobility to improve 360 breathing
- Examples in various positions and how often to work on breathing throughout your days

Week 3- Pelvic/Hip Muscle Retraining

- Strengthening the glutes the right way
- Soft tissue techniques to release and improve muscle strengthening and coordination for our core healing
Week 4- How to make every movement intentional
- Importance of posture and how to self correct posture with everyday movements in order to healing your diastasis
