Running while Pregnant

Dr. Alberto Sirven, Medical Director of the West Kendall OB/GYN Program and Women and Infant Credentials Committee Chairman with West Kendall Baptist Hospital, says running can be good for pregnancy, because the muscles in the vagina will be helped by the strength of the legs and the buttocks.

He also explains the epidural allows mothers to relax; and when they have been exercising, they can relax the muscles and that allows them having a faster delivery.
