Diastasis recti and the postpartum pelvic floor
January 17, 2018
Event Type: Webinar
During pregnancy, the abdominal wall expands. Evidence suggest that 100% of people will get a diastasis rectus abdominis (DRA) by the 35th week of pregnancy. What role do midwives play in screening and accessing this common condition? Join pelvic floor therapist Julia Di Paolo for an informative presentation that will review the physiology and anatomical considerations for clients with DRA; what affect DRA has on delivery and how it is connected to the pelvic floor; as well as current literature on assessment and management of DRA.
