Mums on the run was created to help women get back to running after having a baby, with an emphasis on the importance of pelvic health. Too often women return to their lives after having a baby, only to suffer from what can be classified as pelvic floor dysfunction. This can be anything from low back or pelvic pain, to incontinence (leaking), diastasis recti (abdominal muscle separation), or dealing with a prolapse, among other things. These issues can get ignored and often go untreated because women are embarrassed to talk about them, think they are "normal after having a baby," or don't have the time to address their issues. The goal of Mums on the Run is to bring awareness to these challenges while creating a supportive community where women can ask questions, seek help, and become educated about their bodies while safely getting back to doing the activities they love.
