‘After the birth of my 2 sons, the divarification of my recti muscles was so bad that I was facing specialist cosmetic surgery to tie my muscles back together (the routine plastic surgeon was too scared to operate and I had to be referred to a specialist). By pure coincidence one night, Tummy Tribe popped up on my Facebook feed and I got curious. I can honestly say that it was the best thing EVER to find. When I started the Tu…pler Technique in late January of this year, I had a waist of over 44” (which at 5’3” made me look as though I was still 6 months pregnant, 2 years after the birth of my youngest son and I was constantly asked when my baby was due!) and a gap of over 14 fingers width in the middle of the divarification. Within 3 months of seeing Rachel, my gap has reduced to between 8 and 9 fingers width and I had gone down to a 39.5” waist. I was able to ditch my “L” splint and go down to a “M” which was a great milestone. I am so grateful to Tummy Tribe for being there with the support and encouragement to keep going. It is not a quick fix solution but if done right, is a long term solution and I’m now not facing major surgery (with its lengthy recovery time which I can not afford with 2 children and a husband (or is that 3 children!!) and associated pain and scar tissue), my self-confidence has increased and I no longer get asked when my baby is due. The best thing is that my trousers now sit in their correct place rather than digging into my c-section scar which only added to my misery. Thank you so much Rachel and Tummy Tribe, I couldn’t have done it without you!’

“I was so relieved when I found Rachel of Tummy Tribe! A few days after giving birth I realised that my tummy was still big and “high”. Rachel measured a 10cm diastasis. She encouraged me and we commenced the program soon, at my own pace as I had a very small baby… it was so helpful! My tummy improved visibly in a few weeks, and kept improving over the months. It is now as flat as it was before the pregnancy, the diastasis has gone completely”
