So, if you're anything like me, you had your baby (maybe even years ago). You oiled and bound your belly for weeks, then you started to exercise some, maybe even a lot. Maybe you did planks, chaturangas, maybe you did Pilates or something specific to get your core strength back, and perhaps you did kegels to strengthen your pelvic floor.But... something still doesn't feel right and really doesn't look right. You still look as if you could be a couple or even a few months pregnant. And if you have a big sneeze or a good laugh with friends... sometimes [gah!] you might even pee a little.
One day, one of the clients in our midwifery practice came in for a post partum appointment and told us about a system she had followed that really helped to heal her diastasis recti (abdominal separation) and get her flat tummy back. "What was it!?" I had to know immediately. "It's called Mutu System," she said. I looked into it, but didn't have time just then.
Then one day about 4 weeks ago, I was ready. Well, I am loving it! And I've seen what it's done for other women, so I wanted to share it with you. This is going to be one of our top recommendations post partum. After the classical 42 days of rest and rejuvenation...start your Mutu program. I could tell you all about the science behind this program, but the founder, Wendy, has everything set up to explain this very nicely, so I'll leave that to her. What I will tell you about, is a few things I love about the program:
- You can sign up and get instant access to do everything online OR you can order the DVD
- Once you sign up, you have lifetime access to the videos and the support
- You can use some of the recommended tools such as dumbbells, resistance band, etc. or you can completely improvise with household items (saving you money)
- Mutu supports Hamlin Fistula, which supports the Hamlin Fistula Hospital in Ethiopia (HFE), opened in 1974 by Drs. Reginald and Catherine Hamlin. They raise awareness of obstetric fistula – a debilitating childbirth injury, and also take care of many women who have suffered this injury.

Go to the Mutu homepage now to explore the options. And as always, we would love to hear what experiences you're having with this as other suggestions.
Much Love, Sunny
