Hailey’s #BreakTheBias: How Running Helped Me Manage My Anxiety

This March, we’re celebrating Mum & More month. We know that becoming a mum can change your world entirely and whilst that’s often an incredible change, many of us feel lost or forget who we are.

As part of our International Women’s Day celebration this year, we asked you for your stories and experiences surrounding gender stereotypes, bias, and how you challenged perceptions of women and motherhood.

“Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination. A world that’s diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women’s equality. Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias.

Celebrate women’s achievement. Raise awareness against bias. Take action for equality.”

Introducing our first mum, Hailey, who shared her experience with us.

Beautiful Hailey shares her experience with us

I ran throughout my pregnancy, right up until the day before I had my son. It really helped me manage all the anxiety surrounding giving birth in the middle of a pandemic. I invested in a women’s physio and started running again after my postpartum checks. I am now back to post-pregnancy fitness and love buggy running with my 11-month-old son!

It was really positive to hear encouragement from other Mums and colleagues when I returned to work. I really want to get the message across that self-care is really important and making time to do what makes you happy is a really healthy thing to do as a new Mum. It can be something really small but it can make all the difference!
