“Feel good” during pregnancy

By Desiree Ahrens

dahlc-1403“I didn’t know I could run while pregnant!” one of the pregnancy program participants exclaimed as we completed a lap around the track during prenatal training. “Yes! You sure can!” I encouraged her, “as long as you are feeling good then keep doing what you are doing.”

It begs the question of what does “feeling good” mean? Well, it can mean different things for everyone. Some moms-to-be “feel good” right through their due date while others do not “feel good” before they even know they are pregnant. The data shows that running is perfectly fine during pregnancy as long as you are not under any restrictions. However, it is up to each person to determine when they “feel good.”

Registration for pregnancy program opens on Monday, September 26 at 5:30pm. Register through the front desk or call 266-4688 to reserve your spot for this 10 week program. Every Monday will include an educational hour and a prenatal training beginning October 10. We bring in expert speakers to discuss a range of topics from nutrition to pelvic floor. We also have prenatal trainings and pool trainings available without the educational component. To register for training only, email me at

I look forward to the start of another pregnancy program! To hear about my personal story with prenatal training, see my blog post here. Already had baby? Learn about out postnatal offerings here.
