All I can say is "Yeah!". A 41 year-old woman in Menasha, WI rides her bike to the delivery room to have her baby! For the details you can look here or read her first-hand story here. I advocate biking everywhere, but this is one instance I hadn't thought of. The expectant mom rode her bike to all her prenatal exams, and when the contractions started, her husband had the bikes ready to go. She said "Despite all the dire warnings that I would crash my bike when the pain hit, I found that I could power through it. In fact, the contractions on the bike were the easiest to bear because I was distracted and doing something I love."
