Firstly, congratulations on having your baby! If you have found this blog, you are already keen to get rid of your mummy tummy and researching treatments after pregnancy. I’d like to say- don’t be too hard on yourself. Enjoy that amazing miracle that you have created and given them as many cuddles as you can. They will grow up so quickly, and you will be looking back regretting all the time you spent thinking about your tummy.

I know we should all try and treasure the absolutely gorgeous baby (or babies for those lucky ones) but the niggling thoughts that pop into our heads when we look down and see our podgy tummy are less than comforting. I know you would like to do something about it and I am going to explore some of the options for you.

  1. This is the first and most widely chosen treatment after pregnancy that we explore. If you are anything like me, you throw yourself in, head first only to get three weeks down the track, exhausted, tired, sleep-deprived and questioning if it is worth it. While you might be able to see results in your arms, legs and bottom, you probably won't be able to see a reduction in your belly size and that because we haven’t treated the real cause of your baby belly- diastasis recti. So we research other options.                                      .
  2. Losing weight and bouncing back post-baby is important to most of us and we adopt dieting as a treatment after pregnancy. Diet is responsible for 80% weight loss, while exercise only makes up 20%. But for some reason, we throw our selves into meal replacement shakes, meal plans, weight loss packages all in the attempt to reduce the bulge. If you are reading this and tried all of the above strategies but still have that pooch tummy- I’m again, not surprised by this. You can not get rid of your post-baby belly that easy. That’s because you actually need to treat the diastasis recti roperly.   ..
  3. If you are looking at all of your options, tried every treatment after pregnancy out there and still you have a mummy tummy you may be considering surgery as a treatment after pregnancy. But have you heard of No Mummy Tummy? One of the only qualified Diastasis Recti companies in Australia to provide one-on-one Trainer led programs to treat Diastasis Recti specifically.

        The No Mummy Tummy pre and post pregnancy programs may reduce your diastasis recti and alleviate the need to undergo invasive surgery or other modes which do not treat the condition.

        How do we do this? The most effective programs for pregnant mums are those who provide correction to the medical condition first; healing and correction of the connective tissue and recti muscles before educating you on the importance of safe movement, and how to protect and strengthen your core. Only then should exercises or further programs for pregnant mums be introduced.

        No Mummy Tummy’s programs for pregnant mums don’t just stop there. We provide follow-on programs for pregnant mums such as our MumCore Classes. These classes will guide you through a 60-minute routine where only safe exercises are utilised allowing you to start focusing on toning, strengthening and weight loss. We focus on correct alignment, core stability, and all over body conditioning; ensuring that our classes are the most tailored programs for pregnant mums in Australia.

        The No Mummy Tummy programs for pregnant mums are suitable for pregnant and post-pregnant women.
