#389: Running During Pregnancy and Postpartum

Sarah and Molly talk about the quintessential mother runner topics—running during pregnancy and postpartum—with Kate Mihevc Edwards, a physical therapist and co-author of the new book Go Ahead: Stop and Pee. Interspersed with empathetic laughter, the trio talks about:

-the metric for gauging exertion when running during pregnancy;

-stroller-running tips and arm-swing advice for all runners;

-how to return to running after pregnancy;

-the importance of seeking professional help for postpartum incontinence or leaking; and,

-butt- and chest-gripping (it’s not what you think!).

In the intro chitchat, learn in which scenario Molly and producer-Alex agree the best plan of action is to, “grab a beer; run like hell!” The guest enters the scene at 14:56.

  1. As a pediatrician, it’s technically not recommended to run with your child in their car seat because the changes the balance of the stroller. Jogging with your infant is recommended at 6 months when they have good head control.

  2. I ran during my pregnancy in the mid-80s and got back into three weeks after a c section. I just did it because I wanted to and could…don’t over-think this.
