Returning to running postpartum is tough (but so rewarding)!

As the newborn phase settles behind you and you start to contemplate the process of returning to running, or perhaps of starting to run for the first time, you will probably find that there is an overwhelming amount of information in internet-land and it can be hard to know where to start.

The purpose of this guide is to give you the best evidence-based information we have available from experts in running and postpartum health. We want to take the guesswork, the jargon, the hype, and the filters off the process, and help you return to running postpartum safely.
