Abdominal separation in pregnancy is normal. The gap that develops is what allows space for the growing baby.
All the fear mongering that rectus diastasis/rectus separation/abdominal separation is THE END OF THE WORLD and pathological is either pure fear mongering to support a product or industry, or very misinformed.
Bodies change and accommodate growth in pregnancy and then, with appropriate activity can undergo recovery and restoration after birth. A small percentage of women need professional help with their recovery and many women do benefit from guided exercise in the initial post birth phase to facilitate solid functional recovery.
Telling women that abdominal separation can "increase rates of csection, tears and forceps delivery" is complete misinformation and fear mongering.
Telling women that abdominal separation WILL cause back pain is pure crystal balling. We know pain is far more complex than just mechanics or post pregnancy changes. Not all women with separation WILL get back or other pains.
Telling women THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY or METHOD they can recover after birth is also misleading. If that was the case, we would all be stuffed after birth across the world. There is always more than one way to facilitate change.
Telling women THEY MUST purchase a specific abdominal brace or they are DOOMED is also misleading. A lot of women with abdominal separation in the postnatal phase can recover without light or heavy external bracing or supports. External bracing also runs the risk of changing motor patterning and creating additional issues if it is heavily relied upon. Support and bracing should be used judiciously as a short term aid to recovery alongside and active rehab programme.
Also run a mile if you are told you have a 20cm separation in any assessment...the chances of that is very, very slim (especially if you haven't had twins or multiple babies) and I'd be concerned about the experience and skill level of the practitioner doing the assessment.

Unlike Larry Nassar, practitioners of pelvic floor physical therapy always wear gloves, which prevent infections but also make patients more comfortable. They manipulate muscles to release and elongate those that are tense and shortened or to strengthen weakened muscles. They often assign patients exercises to do at home.
“There is nothing sexual about it,” said Rhonda Kotarinos, a physical therapist in Chicago who specializes in the pelvic floor and is an author of several studies on the therapy.
She, like many other practitioners, now worries that women with pelvic problems who could benefit from the treatment will be reluctant to seek help for fear of being abused.
“Much of the general public doesn’t realize what we as physical therapists have to offer them,” said Lori Mize
Some patients who come to a physical therapist will say they aren’t comfortable with transvaginal manipulation, and therapists say they utilize it only if the patient both understands what’s involved and freely consents.
