Great work from Gráinne Donnelly, Emma Brockwell and Tom Goom have helped develop this brilliant guide for returning to running post-pregnancy.

Key considerations such as breastfeeding, sleep and psychosocial factors
Signs and symptoms of pelvic floor and/or abdominal wall dysfunction
Risk factors and contra-indications to return to running
And much more
