What is #TheDiastasisProject?
#TheDiastasisProject is the brainchild of Antony Lo who has a passion for accurate women’s health information to be accessible to the public at a low cost.
Many myths abound about women’s health and specifically the diastasis rectus. Some people prey on the vulnerabilities and insecurities of women, they use fear-based marketing and scare campaigns to either get them to buy their products/services or imprison women into thinking they are weak, and vulnerable and must be limited in movement and choice or else!
#TheDiastasisProject aims to dispel these myths, remove the mysteries, provide clear, accurate, research-based evidence in an easy-to-understand format.
