I have a small painless indent in the near center of my abdomen, present for a few years, since after birth of 4th child. not muscle separation said midwife.
Hello and welcome to HCM, A painless 'indent' on the abdomen with a previous history of birth of 4th child suggests muscle separation. You need to consult a surgeon for local examination of abdominal muscles. The tone of the muscles can be increased by exercising. If there is associated herniation of abdominal contents after muscle separation, surgical correction can be done. Thanks and take care
