Biking While Pregnant (And In Labor!)
Minneapolis, where Blooma got its start, is one of the most bike-friendly cities in the U.S
., and many European countries are even more reliant on bicycling. In Denmark, not even labor keeps women off their bikes!
We encourage lots of walking during labor; in Denmark, it would not be unusual (according to this article
) to find a laboring woman riding her bike to the hospital. WOW!
Here in town, we know a mama who biked from first through third trimester. Check out the amazing Lisa S. on her bike at 39 weeks pregnant!
Lisa and her husband are big biking advocates— here’s another photo from just a few days ago when they took their second son for his first bike ride in their Bakfiets (a dutch cargo bike).
What about you, mamas? Were you comfortable biking during pregnancy? Could you imagine biking during labor?
