When it comes to pregnancy, there are a lot of myths and misconceptions. Popular wisdom dictates that a lot of workaday activities are best avoided, but often without citing any viable, concrete reasons. Last month, Time Magazine’s Healthland blog posted an interesting item called 5 Pregnancy Taboos Explained (or Debunked) that got to the bottom of certain pregnancy no-no’s like coffee and air travel. Even with the support and empirical evidence from the medical community, however, some expectant mothers are reluctant to deviate from the age-old guidelines.
Not all women agree, however. WNBC’s Glenn Zimmerman went to Central Park to meet an expectant mother and former marathon runner who is intent on keeping with her active running regimen, even while seven-months-pregnant. And she’s not alone.
