Product Description

Synopsis

Each year the thousands of women runners who are pregnant or have just had a baby hear conflicting advice from friends, family, even from doctors. These women have had nowhere to turn for accurate, up to date information. The Runners World Guide To Running And Pregnancy is the first ever comprehensive look at the how-tos and benefits of running for the expectant mother. And the benefits abound. Even a modest pregnancy running programme gives women a reduced risk of gestational diabetes, high blood pleasure, and premature birth. It also leads to fewer Caesareans, faster recovery after delivery, and even smarter babies!

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Stephanie Pearce on 21 Aug. 2011
Format: Paperback
Bought this when thinking about a second pregnancy as I was very inactive during my first, and wanted some advice/hints about being more active when pregnant. It was perfect. I am not a full on runner, but it was just reassuring to read that women could still do exercise and there are many helpful tips and pieces of information about how to be active safely (not just running and not just for experienced runners).

I found that if you spoke to nearly anyone (dr, midwife, physio etc) they are very reluctant to recommend anything much at all apart from going for a walk - which I guess is fair enough as they would get the blame if something happened from other recommendations (even if it was completely random to have something bad happen).

This book has exercises, stretches and lots of info about walking/jogging/running and other exercises. I found it very helpful and reassuring. Obviously there are no guarantees, but it really isn't healthy to sit around doing nothing for the best part of a year when your body is under so much stress anyway - we need healthy forms of exercise to keep our bodies strong and flexible and fit enough for birth and new mummy duties.

Might not be for everyone, but I found it very good.

Great book if your considering running while pregnant. It shows that you can run while pregnant and in the later stages gives feedback that running on a treadmill may be good. However made me feel a little inadequate when some people in the book didn't change the distance they were running ( I did) also scared me a bit when said people could get aggressive when you run and are pregnant ( this never happened to me.) I did find it useful and quite inspiring.

Being a runner I was a bit anxious about continuing to run while pregnant. Well thank god for this book. It offered me helpful tips and practical advise. I ran up to 39 weeks. I doubt I would have had the confidence without reading this.

Plus I could give it to people to read when they questioned me for exercising while pregnant.

This has been a generally informative read. It included lots of exercises and good, up to date advice. The only thing I found a bit annoying is that it has American measures so I had to sit with a converter when reading this.

I ran up to 31 weeks, and although I didn't learn a whole lot that I didn't already know, it was nice to read about other running pregnant ladies. Fair play to those who run into late pregnancy!
