Has there been any updates on this?? I wrote to MLA's MP's, Ministers, appeared in local news papers and on a TV report!!! I fought for months!! Yet nothing!! And I still have to pay tax?? Medicare Levy?? Private health insurance??

Still living with the same issues/pain/discomfort, faced by many others. Its so depressing.

Have the plastic surgeons given up as well??

I too have severe Diastatis Recti after 3 children close together but when checking out the surgery options as exercise & fitness has not worked. Medicare should reassess this as so many women suffer :(

Because my friend desperately needs the surgery, it's not a cosmetic surgery it's a quality of life surgery!

After having kids a lot of mums start to feel
Very self conscious about themselves. Lacking the motivation to go out. If by having the chance and access to regain this confidence is through this then I 100 % support the idea for already mums and even mums to be.
