PREGNANCY & DIASTASIS: Why Does Diastasis Recti Put Your Pregnancy at Risk For a C- Section? | TUPLER TECHNIQUE®
A diastasis can actually be a precursor to a Cesarean birth, because when the recti muscles separate, the uterus can become top-heavy and tilt forward against the connective tissue, which gives it little support. If this happens, the cervix will be angled sideways, rather than down. And well, when this is the case—let’s just say, detour! The baby’s not coming out from the birth canal.
The closer together and stronger your abdominal muscles are, the better your back will feel and the more effective your pushing will be in labor. Pushing is hard work and if your abdominals are not strong, they will get tired quickly. Learn how to prepare your ab muscles with the Tupler Technique® exercises. But before you learn how to push the correct way in labor, you must learn how to prepare the muscles of your pelvic floor—specifically, how to strengthen, stretch and relax them.
