In a study conducted from January 2015 to January 2016, which examined women aged 18 to 50 who had given birth at least once in their lives, it was found that the incidence rate was 46.5%, meaning that one in two women who gave birth develops rectus diastasis.
Abdominal muscle separation leads to an unstable abdominal wall, which increases the occurrence and development of poor bowel function, low back pain, blood pressure fluctuations, and lower extremity lymphatic disorders.

Rehabilitation of rectus diastasis - medically approved Bellyy method.

The development of the Bellyy movement therapy method was based on a detailed examination of the patients, a medical history and was part of the postnatal rehabilitation plan. In individual therapies, we took into account the weakened state of patients after childbirth, lack of time and sleep, and breastfeeding.
For 3 years, 52 women who had already given birth to a child were examined and treated with this method.
– The patients studied were from the age group of 22 and 57 years (mean age 33.53 years).
– The training program was started at the earliest 1 week after birth and at the latest 26 years after the last delivery.
– The participating women have given birth 1-3 times.
The method is based on the consideration of the activation sequence of the abdominal muscles in the movement sequence of infancy with minimal changes in the direction of muscle tension.
The exercises are to be done at your own pace. The indicator of exercise change is when you can perform the specified number of repetitions of the current exercise (this was 3 days to 71 days).


The study was initiated in 68 women and completed in 52 (14 discontinued the study after the first to third exercise for various reasons: surgical reconstruction, new pregnancy, tumor, relocation, etc.).

At the end of the program, abdominal circumference decreased by 4.5-14 cm in each patient. Waist pain reported at pretest (47 of 52 women) was completely eliminated in 41 cases and reduced in 6 cases.

The size of the gap between the abdominal muscles at the first measurement:

– 2-5 fingers wide from the navel up

– 0-6 fingers wide from the navel down

– 1-4 fingers wide above the navel

– 0-3 fingers wide below the navel

The results with a value of 0 below the navel were from women (29) who had given birth by cesarean section and in whom the straight abdominal muscles in this area had been sewn together with a few stitches. The program lasted from 10 to 37 weeks.

At the end of the program, the rectus diastasis was completely closed in 37 women, and the gap had decreased by at least 1 finger width in the other 15 women. The abdominal circumference decreased by 4.5-14 cm in each patient. Waist pain reported at pretest (47 of 52 women) was completely eliminated in 41 cases and reduced in 6 cases.
Rectus diastasis also known as abdominal wall weakness is a particularly common problem in women who have given birth at least once. However, once diagnosed, an appropriate exercise program can significantly improve the condition of the abdominal wall and reduce or eliminate other symptoms that may develop as a result of rectus diastasis.

The application of the Bellyy movement therapy method leads to a significant reduction of rectus diastasis, which occurred during pregnancy.


Bellyy exercise program


The 7+1 parts of the online exercise series are developed for the rehabilitation of the separated abdominal muscle condition (Diastasis Recti) and the abdominal wall, with the help of more than a decade and a half of professional experience of Eva Bajzik, M.D., physician, doctor of rehabilitation. The condition of the abdominal wall can be significantly improved in a couple of weeks, with a daily 10-15 minutes of exercise.

The videos are arranged in the recommended order of performance, and after every watched video we will ask You a couple of questions, which after answering them, will help You in practising the exercises most effectively. After you have gone through the full set of exercises, all the videos will be accessible to you anytime!

For starting the exercise series, after the purchase, we suggest, that as a first step register on our page and carry out the condition assessment.

Diastasis Recti (open abdominal muscle) exercise program

The health of the abdominal wall is not only an aesthetical question. The neglect of open abdominal muscle (Diastasis Recti) can even lead to further complications and subsequent health problems- hernia-, and spine problems- but it has an important role in the optimal sustenance of digestion, maintenance of lower limbs’ venous circulation, the regulation of blood pressure and lymphatic circulation, but its sluggishness affects the pelvic floor as well.
Check your condition!
