Postnatal Return to Running Exercises

I‘m a 29 year old woman with two young children living in a remote community in the Kimberley region.

Before having children I was fairly fit and enjoyed short distance running. I have since been reluctant to start jogging again as I wasn’t sure if my pelvic floor was strong enough and I rarely remembered to make time to do what I believed to be fairly boring pelvic floor exercises.

Thanks to Dianne and the information outlined in ‘The Pregnancy Centre’ website I have now been able to incorporate a variety of exercises and stretches into a weekly exercise routine that specifically target strengthening my pelvic floor muscles. Postnatal Exercises.

Now I find it more enjoyable and worthwhile to make time for pelvic floor exercises as I realise the importance in having a strong pelvic floor and how this improves whole body fitness. Eventually I will be able to build up to a short distance running program with confidence.

To help you return to running use the Postnatal Return to Sport section of our website together with the checks in our booklet,
