Ultimately, it will help show you how to answer these questions for your own unique body. 

 

Here's the experience from a trapeze artist, April Skelton during pregnancy: 

"My ego is already chomping at the bit to get back to my normal aerial activities; my mind says: the ego is big and slippery and a liar. In an aesthetic field where faster and flashier are the winners, what place is there for longevity, nuance, health, and process? The most physical challenge of my life, giving birth, sits just in front of me, but my ego wants the sexier thing--aerial. I was so fortunate to get an opportunity to review Rebekah Leach 's book on aerial and pregnancy (and postpartum recovery) this past week. It steadied my resolve to invest in the process, take my focus off the 'goal,' and fully be here now, going deeper into what my body is able to show me when I pay attention to the present."
