[PODCAST] 10 Guidelines for Post-Pregnancy Running

by Mar 30, 2021


[NEW] 10 Guidelines for Post-Pregnancy Running✨

How do you know if your body is really ready for structured or intentional running postpartum?

Your medical provider cleared you for exercise at 6 weeks post-pregnancy and then you just…go to it?! *gasps*

In today’s brand new episode of the To Birth and Beyond podcast, we walk you through a 10-step checklist to help you gauge when your body is physically more able to handle the demands of running:

Examples on that list:

– General guideline is to be over 12 weeks or 3 months postpartum or post-surgery (to allow ample time for tissue healing and nervous system support)

Sleeping 6-7+ hours a night or AT LEAST in a 24-hour period, with naps

– You have been walking or taking leisurely walks for 4+ weeks. Have been doing some type of strength training or core rehab for 4+ weeks prior (1-3 times per week).

Urinary incontinence and/or pelvic organ prolapse is feeling well managed , or is feeling supported during running (this might take some adjusting and testing new strategies over time – working with a coach can be helpful here!)

– Running or exercising feels supportive for your mental health!


The above are only half of what we cover in today’s show! Hear the other 5 guidelines when you listen in to this episode.

While every bod will respond differently to running after pregnancy or birth, these markers will help you know when to get back to jogging, running, and sprinting!


PS. My brand new postpartum running program is now open for enrolment!
