Seperated stomach muscles

Since having my first child 5 years ago my stomach muscles have never knitted back together again. I have since had another child who is now 2 years old and I still have a gap running down the middle of my stomach. Does anyone know if there is anything I can do?

yes you can do special sit ups and other exercises. One of them is a normal sit up but you cross your hands across your stomach and kind of hold it in IFYKWIM
