    Default Stomach muscle separation

    Hi!
    After DS was born (14 months ago) the midwife noted a week after his birth that I had a notable separation of my stomach muscles (about 6-7cms) but nothing was really discussed about it she just made a passing comment that I should keep an eye on it. I totally forgot all about it til the other day when I was pressing on my tummy and noticed that I still have about a 3-4cm separation. Is this something I should be concerned about? Should I seek treatment?
    TIA

    Hi! I had some separation when I had my DS too. I went to the Physio (and am a Physio myself) and they helped me heaps with a great program and education. I would recommend heading to a Physio that specialises in obstetric and post natal Physio or women's health. Can't do any harm, but could do a lot of good!!!

    I would see a physio too. Also check out SRC recovery shorts. I've been using the pregnancy shorts, but the recovery ones look like they would be effective for you.

    Yes defiantly see someone. Mine is down from 4cm to 1cm and my gp is still worried as it can affect the next pregnancy apparently.
