  • There is preliminary evidence that athletes involved in high-intensity sports for sustained periods have a higher probability of experiencing a prolonged second stage of labour compared to non-athletes. The mechanisms responsible for these differences are not clear, although it is postulated that muscle hypertrophy and increased muscle tone in athletes may contribute to difficulties in vaginal delivery. In order to test these hypotheses, we have constructed individual-specific finite element… CONTINUE READING
