    Hmm...my midwives first mentioned it during the 3rd tri then after birth gave me some info sheets on exercises that are supposed to help.

    I think if you lie down you can press under your belly button, tigthen abs and if you can feel a gap that's separation. Mine only about 1cm.

    Sorry that's (above) not quite right:

    A diastasis is measured in fingers because that’s the easiest way for you to tell exactly how far your muscles have separated. Given that everyone’s fingers are different sizes this is not a perfect form of measurement; but the important factor is that you can easily check and measure a diastasis on your own.

    Here’s how you check:

    Lie on your back with your knees bent and your head on the floor.
    Place your hand on your stomach with the fingers pointing in the direction of your toes
    Press your middle three fingers into your belly button.
    Relax your abdominal muscles and gently lift your head, drawing your chin towards your chest. If you are holding your abdominal muscles in as you check it will give you a false reading as this will make the diastasis appear smaller. The muscles will also get closer together the higher you lift your head.
    If you have a diastasis you will be able to feel the rectus abdominis tightening up on either side of your fingers. If you cannot feel this muscular contraction you may need to place more fingers in the gap between the muscles so you can measure it correctly. In some cases this gap may be 10+ fingers wide.
    You also want to determine the condition of the connective tissue. The deeper your fingers will go towards your spine, the weaker the connective tissue. If you feel a pulsing while you are checking, this is a sign of very weak connective tissue.
    If, when you raise your head, you simply feel your stomach muscles tighten underneath your fingertips (as opposed to tightening on each side) then you do not have a diastasis.

    I will have to have a go today.
    My tum was checked 3 times after birth, but I thought that was just for the uterus.
