Superfit Mother Was Weightlifting Two Days Before Giving Birth (Video)



SUPERFIT mother Meghan Umphres Leatherman shows she can still deadlift 215lb weights despite being nine months pregnant. The mother-to-be was just TWO days away from her due date and 1cm dilated, but that didn’t stop her grueling CrossFit workout. The 33-year-old even lifted weights on the day she went into labour and broke records in the final days of pregnancy. As well as going to the gym FOUR times a week, Meghan, from Arizona, America, continued to walk her dog for three miles a day and go on a four-mile hike through the mountains every week. But far from doing herself or her first baby damage, Meghan, a marketing and communications consultant, insists they’re both healthier for it and her pregnancy was actually EASIER. Now she is settling in to life as a mom after giving birth to 6 lb, 11 oz daughter, Florence Germaine, on May 3. But she expects to be back at the gym again in just THREE weeks.
