One question we get asked a lot, is when it is safe to return to exercise, particularly running, after you’ve had a baby.
So, it was great to see a wonderful new infographic from 3 top specialist Physio’s in this area, which has been aligned with the Chief Medical Officers Physical Activity Guidelines.
It’s often really hard for new mum’s to judge and decide what exercise to do when they’ve just had a baby, so it’s great to have this guidance, in any easy to understand and clear format. Many turn to professionals like us for advice, which is great, but others can be confused and get conflicting advice.
Obviously, the guidance needs to be interpreted and followed based on individual circumstances, comfort and recovery.
But it certainly helps manage expectations. And, certainly for those that are super keen to get back to higher impact exercise, following the guide will help you plan a gradual build up.
