The statistics are absolutely shocking. Even though there are only 200,000 cases of postpartum Diastasis Recti reported each year, sources report anywhere from 2/3 of all women to 98% of mothers experiencing this condition in their lifetime. That means if you're a woman intending to become a mother or already are, this information will be invaluable to you. First things first, this condition cannot be cured. Lifelong care and attention may be needed in extreme cases, but most cases are manageable with minimal effort after the initial recovery period.
