Mum on the Run
Running places a lot of demand on the body. To prevent musculoskeletal pain, incontinence, and prolapse, the body needs time to complete a graded return to running after having a baby, no matter how long ago you gave birth.
Mum on the Run are comprehensive 121 sessions to support you in your quest to returning to running after having a baby.
These sessions are also suitable for women who are already rrunning but feel their technique and training can be more pelvic floor friendly. Maybe you are picking up injuries or experiencing some pelvic floor dysfunction or pain during or after running?
