I cant help you too much, but I do know it was hard for me to do crunches for years after C-sections. I have had 3, so the muscles were in horrible shape due to them being cut so many times. You might start with standing crunches or crunches on a ball as they are much easier.

Also do be aware that while there are exercises which can correct diastasis recti, there's no way to actually spot-reduce the fat on your stomach. If the belly you've got is caused by a layer of fat, you'll need to lose fat overall, since fat loss is a total body process, and you can't choose where it comes off!
