Ep. 70 Hiking While Pregnant

KWE Logo

Everyone’s pregnancy looks different, and hiking while pregnant will too. Make sure to listen to your own body and your care providers’ recommendations. In today’s episodes we share a little bit about what our hiking has looked like while pregnant, especially now, while hiking pregnant with toddlers in tow!

Hiking While Pregnant Tips: 

  • Set the expectation that adventures may slow down for a period of time (or be shorter)
  • Allow yourself to go at toddler-pace, and let them lead the way
  • If carrying a toddler while pregnant, you may find the soft-structured carriers more comfortable than the bigger hiking carriers
  • Trekking poles are fantastic for balance! [And ice cleats/crampons in winter]
  • Put a boundary around first trimester, and “fourth trimester” (3 months postpartum) and be very cautious to listen to your body and what it needs
  • There is no pressure to do anything grand…just step outside!
  • Remember that in the grand scheme of things, pregnancy is such a short period of time

So, in summary:
Slow down. Be present. Breathe in the fresh air. Cuddle that little bundle of joy!
