Abstract

© 2020 Human Kinetics, Inc. Focused Clinical Question: For postpartum primiparous women, will a 16-week, supervised, targeted pelvic floor muscle training program result in a reduced prevalence of diastasis recti abdominis versus education only at discharge? Clinical Bottom Line: We can neither recommend nor caution against a targeted pelvic floor muscle training program to reduce the prevalence of postpartum diastasis recti abdominis.
