what are the risks of climbing prego?

Pretty impressive, but also pretty unconcerned... if she makes a hard fall the harness could be of potential danger to the baby...

wildly inaprorpriate jesus christ woman... if you fell you could destroy your child's life if not kill it. I think this is the stupidest thing I've ever seen on this website.

Get over yourselves. Aimee and her fetus are still way beyond most here in terms of climbing knowledge, ability besides.

Is there any documented cases that climbing is bad for a fetus? I mean, exercise is encouraged for pregnant mothers and besides, if you were to take a fall climbing, most people are likely to stop their fall with their hands or feet not on their stomachs (depending on how bad their fall is/what type of climbing they are doing).
Keep it up, you rock.

I love how all the negative comments are from men. Just another example of how they desire to tell us what we can do with our bodies...

For the intelligent comments: it's just a full body harness, made by Petzel, mostly for industrial uses (maybe caving? I dunno), and there's not a whole lot known about climbing when pregnant, but I've known quite a woman who have climbed up to their due dates.

"wildly inaprorpriate jesus christ woman... if you fell you could destroy your child's life if not kill it. I think this is the stupidest thing I've ever seen on this website." - Jonzo Climber

Could say the same thing about driving a car, crossing a busy street, eating a bad pie, walking up rickety porch steps, walking out your front door in Johannesburg... get yourselves a life Jonzoclimber and Fearlessclimber, there are far more dangerous, everyday activities that are potentially as, if not more, dangerous to an unborn child and it's mother than climbing.

Go girl go!

i can understand if you don't want to stop climbing, but isn't it better to toprope? whatever, i hate children, so i wouldn't mind if you did it solo with the bellycrashpad 200

Why do new things freak so many climbers out so much? You'd think it would be the opposite. C'est la vie. I think your child has a long, happy, healthy life ahead of him/her with an active mother such as yourself.

I used to do that, but I added weights instead. That's probably the youngest documented climber!

Rock on, sister! And for all those RC.com armchair 'medical experts' telling you what you can and cannot do... well, let's just hope they never reproduce, eh?

I can't bilieve that you are leading. I have seen a girl top roping before while being pragnent. That was about two years ago. She has a boy. I remember making joke that he is climbing before being born. I'm 50/50 on this. All the best to you and your child.

the part that makes me sad is that i probably would struggle on that climb, and I am neither pregnant nor woman. So for that- props I suppose.
Soo this is really gross but just go with me here for asecond- let's say a full term preggo is climbing, takes a whip, and it induces labor, child comes out. does the umbilical cord catch the baby? is it dynamic? sorry- but I'm a wonderer

I think its great she's climbing pregnant but I have to say the leading part while pregnant wouldn't be something I would ever do to my baby. Theres alot of risk in it, but thats her choice and her body. I climbed until I was 8-1/2 months pregnant. From the start of my pregnancy I stopped leading but top roped 5.12's, then as I got bigger I dropped it down to 5.9 & 5.10 to protect my ligements. Its great to continue sports you've been doing all along while your pregnant.

While I think it is up to whoever is pregnant to do whatever they want while in such a state, one could argue that she is not replacing these every day activities that you say are just as dangerous if not more dangerous.. but she is merely adding another dangerous variable to the equation.

Either way, good luck with the baby and with future climbing!

Hah, great pic. The most dangerous thing in that picture is probably that falling walkie talkie clocking someone in the head. (and now the inevitable) ROCK!

That 'walkie talkie thing,' upon closer inspection, is just a really coincidental arrangement of branches and pine needles (or rather, a gap in them made sharper by dead branches lining the edges of the gap)...Zoom in if you're skeptical.

As for the leading pregnant...I think I'll just stay out of that mess. Cool looking route though.

if you should climb while pregnant, it also stands to reason that you shouldn't climb after giving birth for fear of leaving your child motherless. You should alos not clib before you are pregnant for fear of denying you not-yet-born children the right to life.
In keeping with this "logic" no feamles should climb....ever.

Get real people.

Climbing has different levels of risk. If you are well within your ability at a local crag no problem...if you are doing a 5.11 free solo that's a different story.

My guess is she's lead this climb before and it's well within her ability. it's no different than some other mothers going on a hike in the woods to stretch their legs.

Great job. I hope motherhood is treating you and the family well. And for everybody who says she's leading, I certainly don't see any gear or gear loops for that matter. Maybe she has it all on a shoulder sling on her left side. I wonder if climbing an offwidth would help lymphedema patients :)

I don't think I'll have the balz to lead...but a bun in the oven insn't going to keep me from climbing. God wouldn't have given me rock if he didn't want me to climb it!

Ok, some of those comments people made on here are waaaay to extreme. They obviously don't know what they are talking about and don't have knowledge or experience with climbing. If you don't rock climb you can't make a comment like the one about her hurting or "killing her baby." Ridiculous. I am also 5 months prego and have researched whether or not it is safe to do. Top roping and bouldering are more dangerous with the fall that can incur but top roping is safer than running. I am more likely to fall down some stairs or trip and fall running than I am to hurt myself top roping. So kiss it to all the negative comments on here. And you GO GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i meant to say "lead climbing" and bouldering are more dangerous than top roping. just to clarify.
