A mum has gone viral after working out in the hospital right into the final hours of her labour. She uploaded the video to her Instagram account where it has since been viewed tens of thousands of times.
“My last #pregnancyworkout was at the hospital just hours before we met our gorgeous Madi Grace,” the caption read.
“We were in the ward waiting for contractions to ramp up and a delivery suite to become available so we could meet our sweet baby girl.”
Most people were amazed by her efforts, “how you managed to have that kind of energy right there in the hospital is unreal! You're a rockstar!,” one person wrote.
In another post, she wrote, “'I'm quite sore and completely exhausted and also quite emotional. I just hope I can be strong and brave enough to be the best mama possible to our gorgeous children.
“I know many mamas will relate to the fears and anxieties of adding another bubba to the family and I'm hoping by sharing my experiences you can find comfort in the fact that you're not alone.”
However, some people have questioned if it was safe for her to work out so close to giving birth.
