Lea-Ann Ellison birthed a healthy baby – DUH

CrossFit HQ shared a story yesterday that controversial momma-to-be Lea-Ann Ellison birthed a healthy baby boy, despite CrossFitting late into her term.

My response? DUH!

Easy delivery? Check. Up on her feet the next day? Check. Thank you, CrossFit, for preparing mommas-to-be for the physical and mental challenges they’ll face during and after birth.

My friend Sara recently shared the following with Leslie and me. Thought it appropriate to share in this post:

“Exercise is good for your baby, too. Studies show that babies born to moms who exercise during pregnancy may benefit from better stress tolerance and advanced neurobehavioral maturity. These children are leaner at five years of age and have better early neurodevelopment.” From Eat Right for Your Baby by Dr. Peter J. D’Adamo with Catherine Whitney. Copyright © 2004.

Think that says it all!
