Hope you are having a fantastic day!
I want to share my list of the resources I have used over the months of my deep study and exploration on this subject,
in addition to resources that share invaluable information on the core, and exercise during pregnancy.
With your intelligence as an instructor, and your ability to understand conditions such as DR from a movement perspective,
…you will be able to read and watch information with a unique point-of-view,
…gathering your own conclusions and coming up with your own ability to understand the condition
…so that it becomes ingrained in your being.
The more often you read and take in information related to pregnancy and postnatal health, the more confident you will be working with this population.
Below is our Instructor’s Guide to Diastasis Recti-Pre & Postnatal Client Recovery Protocol. Make sure to pick that up if you haven’t already.
Here is a summary of the resources listed below:

The first 2 chapters, Tools for Life and The Joy of Movement are invaluable relating to the core, importance of proper breathing, hormones – all the benefits of Pilates during pregnancy and after.
