Onward Bellingham

Diastasis recti recovery specialists

Physical Therapy


Diastasis Recti refers to the separation of the two sides of the rectus abdominis muscle (your six pack muscles).This is not only common, but actually occurs in 100% of women during pregnancy. For many, this separation persists for prolonged periods postpartum. As you return to the fitness activities that you love, rebuilding your core strength the right way is a crucial step. 

Recovering from diastasis recti isn’t as simple as cranking out a few sets of crunches or planks each day. An individualized plan designed for where your body currently is and tailored to where you hope to go is the best way to attack rebuilding your core strength postpartum.

Onward Bellingham Postpartum Guide to Return to Exercise

Don’t just take our word for it

patient testimonial

“It has been 5 years since I have been able to do toes to bar without abdominal pain and cramping. I had no idea I had diastasis recti from having twins or that this separation could be fixed without surgery. I almost resigned my workouts to crunches until I found Onward Bellingham and Dr. Heather. Two months later, I’m back in the game and doing my first toes to bar in 5 years!”

– Alia P.

“I love working with heather! Her approach to PT is so refreshing. She definitely understands athletes’ bodies and how to help with long term solutions rather than quick fixes. I would highly recommend working with her if you’re pregnant or postpartum!”

– Abby M.
