E43. What you need to know about Diastasis Recti. with Grainne Donnelly

from Midwife Pip Podcast | Published 1/3/2022

It is not a surprise to us that our bodies undergo enormous change during pregnancy and childbirth and one of the biggest issue’s women are often faced with is diastasis recti- whereby the abdominal muscles separate, leaving a gap. For many women this can have a huge impact on their physical and psychological wellness, and it is not a condition that is commonly discussed prenatally leaving women unsure as to why a diastasis has happened to their body and what can be done to help correct it. So, I am very pleased to be joined by Diastasis Recti expert Grainne Donnelly to reveal all we need to know about this surprisingly common symptom. Gráinne is an Advanced Physiotherapist in Pelvic Health. Her particular areas of interest include diastasis rectus abdominis and perinatal exercise. She is involved in research on both of these topics and looks forward to exploring and developing how we understand them so that we can better serve the women of today. Gráinne is an honorary member of the Perinatal Physical Activity Research Team and is on the specialist advisory board of the Active Pregnancy Foundation.
