If you have stumbled across this blog, then you are eagerly looking to correct, reduce or even prevent a Diastasis Recti from occurring. Normally your google search would have led to programs overseas or options to speak with allied health professionals about surgery as the only option to fix a diastasis recti. This is exactly why No Mummy Tummy was founded. Diastasis Recti Melbourne and nationwide gives an option for women to understand and correct it finally.

No Mummy Tummy was started to give women with a Diastasis an alternative to surgery and fix it with educated steps to reduce the size of their diastasis without resulting to major abdominal surgery. The Master Trainer, Claire Bastow consults from the Diastasis Recti Melbourne Clinic. As an alternative to Diastasis Recti Repair, No Mummy Tummy utilises the four fundamental steps to Diastasis Recti Repair using proper movement, splint wearing, doing exercises safely and promptly and protecting and strengthening the transverse muscle. Diastasis Recti Melbourne has tummy checks and pre and post pregnancy programs available to women expecting (it is easier to prevent than correct!!) and post pregnancy.

Regardless of whether you have had kids, or thinking about having kids our No Mummy Tummy Trainer consults, group classes or individually led Diastasis Recti Melbourne programs can assist you. Whether you are looking to prevent stretch marks, c-sections, hernia surgery or looking to have Diastasis Recti Repair it is never too late to do something about it and gain control.

If you are only just looking into the Diastasis Recti Melbourne Services, here's a quick quiz to see if you may have Diastasis Recti: Can you identify with any of the following:
• Podgy tummy after baby
• sticky outie belly button
• frequent participation as a child (or adult) dancing, swimming, golf, gymnastics or yoga
• have had 2 or more children - 33% of women have Diastasis Recti with their first, 66% with their second and 100% with their third.
• twins or multiple births
• sometimes or frequently peeing pants
• carried very large during your pregnancy
• showed very early in your subsequent pregnancy
• lower back pain after or during exercise or lifting

If you said yes to one or more of these, the best way to check if you have one, or how big it is, is to come to a seminar where you get free testing for Diastasis Recti Melbourne.
