If you’re an outdoor woman the first thing you might have done when that pregnancy test came back positive was think about how a pregnancy could affect your outdoor lifestyle.
If you’re like I was, you’ll be torn between wanting to protect your growing baby while still being able to enjoy activities like hiking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and even mountain biking.
You also might get conflicting advice from healthcare professionals, family members, friends, and even random strangers that you might meet in the grocery store, or at the trailhead.
The truth is, if you’re having a healthy pregnancy I believe that hiking on easy to moderate trails is a great way to connect with your growing baby, yourself and nature.
I’m not a doctor or a midwife, and I don’t claim to be an expert in healthy pregnancies, so please talk to your healthcare professional before you start hiking.
But, I can tell you that many physicians recommend walking throughout a pregnancy.
Walking will keep you healthy and happy. Hiking is nothing more than walking.
My goal is to teach you how to hike through a pregnancy.
