Go easy at first, in the flats to get your core engaged again. The rotation, catch and paddle stroke can be the exact thing to assist your diastasis toward continued and proper healing. I also like the leg drive for your pubic joint. Balanced opposition of leg forces with each drive will settle you into better position; again start easy in flats to see how you respond. I usually tell people (me included) to always start again at 60%, then slowly gain from there. Also, find a PT with good manual therapy skills; you most likely need alignment and rebalance work of pelvis and throughout body.
