Pregnancy can cause a lot of physical changes to a woman before and even after giving birth. Stretch marks, gaining weight and size, and other apparent changes that frequently cause mothers to become conscious of their appearance.
Former actress and now vlogger, Andy Eigenmann, shares her secrets on how she could heal her diastasis recti in both of her pregnancies. If you have seen her before on TV, you probably will testify that she has dramatically reduced weight and was able to recover to a pre-baby body in less than a year.
If you are one of the mommies anxious and conscious about your belly bulge, here’s what you can do based on Andy’s tips.
The actress has many routines, but she does three exercises regularly. You can do the routine ten times and do everything for 2-3 rounds to strengthen the core and close the gap on your abs.
This floor exercise requires you to lie on your back with knees bent and feet apart. You imagine having a blueberry on your back, and you avoid squishing it. Gently lift your bottom upwards and let it stay that way for three seconds and gently return to a neutral position. Repeat it ten times.
You lie on your back with knees bent and feet apart. One leg out is to be straightened, and lift it gently upwards and return it to its original position. Do the same for the other leg and make ten repetitions per leg.
This is routine is similar to the pelvic tilt. You simply lie on your back with knees bent and gently lift your bottom. Move your feet close together and let your knees point in opposite directions. Stay in that position for a few seconds. Inhale and exhale. Finally, return to the neutral position.
Diastasis recti or mommy bulge can worsen when performing some exercises, so Andy advised consulting a doctor or an expert before pushing with the routine.
