Running after having a baby!😊🏃♀️🤱 This is a pic of @alysiamontano who is a world class runner and Mom of 2😊. She's acknowledged that returning to running after having her babies has required paced rehabilitation and that her postnatal body has needed time to heal🙌 It's really important to recognise that your fitness level doesn't necessarily equate to your readiness -your body and every body needs time to heal and recover after having a baby 😊. Your MummyMOT will assess your abdominal and pelvic floor muscle function,your posture and breathing and will grade you back to your exercise level safely and effectively 😊🙌. I've included some video clips of some examples of more end stage post natal rehab back to running taken in clinic😊👍 Some lunging heel raises and some single leg sit-to-stands all with good pelvis and hip control 🙌👌. All videos shared with consent. There are fab Return to Running Postnatal Guidelines by some great physios @emmabrockwell @grainnedonnelly and @tomgroom 😊.
