Running during pregnancy
Hi,

I had a look in the archive and couldn't find this information! How safe is it to run during pregnancy, are there any times when it should be avoided?

Thanks for your help!

Pat, it would be much better to swim or do water aerobics. I suppose you can run for the first 3 months or so, but I wouldn’t advise it. Good luck.
