My wife is expecting twins and lifts (yeah, I keep trying to get her to join T-Nation, until then, I have to post this). She has very decent squat (1.5x bw) and deadlift numbers (2xbw). She is taking a break now because the doctors restricted her to 25 lbs. max. They have warned her that she is more likely to need a C-section and she is wondering if anyone here had one and was able to go back to heavy lifting.
One of her fears too is getting an abdominal separation. Her best friend had that and has been having quite a little bit of trouble as a result. Any other advice you wish to pass along would be welcomed.
Thanks for anything you can share!
