Medical Endorsement

As an OB-GYN, I learned a lot from my own pregnancy.  One of the biggest lessons I learned is how tough the recovery can be to get your pre-pregnancy body back. I pushed too hard and little did I know how much damage I was doing in the first few months after my delivery.  As a result I only made my rectus diastasis worse. What was more frustrating was trying to figure out how to correct it.  There seemed to be no answers; even in the medical literature I searched.  Until I came across the Tupler Technique and met Cheryl Mostowski, I was losing hope. 

    Cheryl took me thru the program and slowly we increased the strength and stability in my transverse muscle.  Although the technique can be done at home, I highly recommend working with a certified instructor as the exercises can be subtle and easily done incorrectly.  Cheryl was very patient and a great motivator.  As I progressed in the program I happily watched my waist and belly shrink.  After a few months I was able to get my old jeans back on comfortably.  I am very grateful that I met Cheryl and that I now have a resource to share with all of my own patients and friends who suffer from “mommy tummy”!
