Returning to running after pregnancy

Your body goes through a lot, both physically and mentally, during pregnancy and childbirth. If you're a keen runner and recently had a baby, you may wonder when you can start running again.

Sarah Griffiths, Physiotherapist at Bupa UK, looks at some important factors to consider before dusting off your trainers.

Warming up and cooling down

Make time to warm up before you head out for a run, as well as cool down afterwards. This will improve your performance and prevent common running injuries.

Watch our shorts videos for easy-to-follow warm-up and cool-down exercises.
