After Bearing Three Children, Mom Can Finally Get ‘Permanent Baby Bump’ Corrected

Amy Rhed, wife and mother from Brockton, Pennsylvania, had a tough time regaining her shape after her first two pregnancies. When she had her third, fully regaining her shape was not an option, but that wasn’t just because it becomes all the more challenging with each subsequent pregnancy. As AWM shares, there was a specific medical reason for why she was having so much trouble.

As Rhed explains it, she knew something wasn’t right. She had developed a six-inch gap in her belly in between her stomach muscles, and things weren’t feeling too swell on the inside either.

“All my insides will literally pop out like a bowling ball,” she recalls.

Besides the appearance issues she was concerned with, Rhed would go on to develop a severe case of diastasis recti. Also known as “split abs,” the condition occurs when the abdominal muscle walls separate during pregnancy to provide a little extra wiggle room for the baby to grow and form. After giving birth, she still felt and looked as if she was eight months pregnant.

She would end up making the rounds to visit a number of medical professionals, but her case was so severe that they walked away scratching their heads. Amazingly, it was as if none of the professionals knew how to treat her. In an act of desperation, she shared some pics of her “permanent baby bump” on social media hoping that someone could point her in the right direction.

After months of hoping, she would finally connect with ‘The Doctors’ of television fame. As you’ll see in the video, they would figure out what to do, and Rhed was set up with the hernia repair surgery that she needed. The emotional video takes you all the way through her emotional journey, and five months later things are looking up. Rhed is getting back to her old self, and that permanent baby bump is a thing of the past.
