No. Some people claim you can change an outie to an innie – by taping a quarter over it, for example – but it’s just not true.
Your uterus is still shrinking and finding its way to its original position, and, for most moms, this can take up to three months. “Immediately after delivery, the uterus will be at the level of your belly button, which is reminiscent of being 20 weeks pregnant,” Ross says.
As long as the bulge is soft and compressible, and is not causing your child any discomfort, it’s not a problem. These hernias usually go away by 12 to 18 months, and surgery to close the hole is rarely necessary.
Will my belly button go back to normal after pregnancy? Yes, your belly button will get right back to its regular position a few months after delivery, although it may look a little stretched out or “lived in.” It’s a badge of honor to wear proudly!
How do you fix Diastasis Recti years later?
In Short, YES. The vast majority of these symptoms can be improved and often fully resolved through correct training of the deep core muscles, coupled with healthy posture, breathing, and alignment in daily life.
Your belly button shape can change — under one special circumstance, pregnancy. “The expansion of the abdomen can cause some “innie” belly buttons to pop out and become outies, but most often, there is not much change in the structure itself,” says Dr.
Can you choose an innie or outie?
Most people end up with innies, but some people have outies. Outies usually occur when more of the umbilical cord is left when it’s cut, leading to more skin left over once it dries out. In some rare cases, outies are caused by a condition known as an umbilical hernia.
Diastasis recti is caused by the overstretching of the linea alba, the tissue or fascia at the center of the rectus abdominis muscles, the “six-pack” muscles to the right and left of the bellybutton. The normal width of the linea alba between the rectus abdominis allows you to bend, twist, and carry a fetus.
