You CAN eliminate postnatal mommy pooch without surgery!

Weill Cornell’s study of The Dia Method, entitled “Postnatal exercise can reverse diastasis recti,” has been published in the Green Journal (American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology). Click here to read the abstract. This is the first published research to prove what we at Dia have seen time and again: exercise can and does reverse abdominal separation, which leads to “mommy pooch”. To view a graph of the findings Weill Cornell presented at the Annual Clinical Meeting of the American Congress of Obstetricians & Gynecologists, visit In less than 12 weeks of participating in The Dia Method exercise program, subjects achieved full resolution of diastasis recti. Full resolution was achieved regardless of when the subjects began training. It truly is never too late to close your abdominal separation! In addition to the core strength benefits the Dia exercises confer, data point to other important health benefits, including reduction of urinary incontinence and reduced incidence of back pain.
