  • Marathon Maternity Side Benefits

    Not in the man bits dog category of news but this mornings paper had a short squib about a woman who gave birth this morning in a car parked alongside I-35.
    It seems, despite her husbands urging, she waited a few contractions too long to head for the hospital. The article attributes her recalcitrance to a high tolerance for pain because she is a marathoner.

    Dad delivered the baby before help arrived. Mom and babe doing fine.

    I definitely think being an athlete can help a woman deal with the pain of labour.
    I didn't have my kids by the side of the road, thank God, but I had very long labours with both and had no pain killers at all.
    I tried to view the whole thing as a very, very long interval workout!

    And I was back running ten days later-mind you only doing 5x1 mile (on a relay) but still I recovered very quickly which I also attribute to being fairly fit.

    I await y'alls labour stories now!

      If that isn't a thread killer, I don't know what is.

        Indeed. Who wants to read a thread about British politics. :P

                  And I was definitely trying to fool you.


                  I honestly don't whether to be insulted or flattered.

                    I've noticed that women consider childbirth a bigger deal than the conception :shock: .

                    Can it be true, Mojo?
