Benefits of Postpartum Running
Running and Maternal-Infant Bonding
Birth and motherhood are transformative for most people. You might hear a lot about maternal-infant bonding. This term refers to the closeness and commitment you have to your baby and how your newborn responds to you.
Thanks to a little invention called the jogging stroller, going for a run can help you and baby bond. Sharing your favorite activity with your new tiny human can help you feel connected to him or her. That burst of adrenaline from the run, combined with the oxytocin you get from staring at baby’s face, makes for one awesome runner’s high.
