Can you see diastasis recti while pregnant?

Yes, Diastasis Recti can be noticeable during pregnancy.  Sometimes it presents like bulging or tenting of the tummy when getting out of bed, other times it presents with a torpedo-shaped belly bump, and other times you can only identify it with a diastasis recti test.  It is helpful to check yourself for a diastasis and get prenatal core training to help minimize the effects of diastasis and strengthen your core for pregnancy, birth, and birth recovery. The Tummy Team has a “how to check yourself for a diastasis while you are pregnant” video to help you.
