The moral police are out again and I’m not talking global politics here. Surfer Bethany Hamilton has brought wrath down on her head because – wait for it – she’s continuing to surf during her pregnancy.
One doctor told an American newspaper: “Surfers have a chance of falling in the water, and hitting big waves can cause trauma to the abdomen”.
Some poignant comments on pregnancy websites about the risk of miscarriage clearly came from tragic personal experience, possibly spilling over into judgements I thought. But then I haven’t been in their shoes.

Congratulations to Hamilton and husband Adam Dirks from this blog at least!
What’s your thoughts – where’s the balance or are there any rules when it comes to exercise and pregnancy?
