A woman, Jade Fash, has demonstrated great human strength as she continued pole dancing 37 weeks into pregnancy.
Daily Mail reports that the 28-year-old woman from Birmingham was into the physical activity as a way to help to keep out “morning sickness and fatigue”.
Daring images of the woman showed her spinning around a pole as she seemed to have total control of her body despite the extra weight.
Briefly.co.za reported that the woman was once scared that her fitness exercise could make her infertile after her periods stopped at age 15. Though she is a professional dancer, she slowed down her training when she became 17 weeks gone.

It should, however, be noted that she got a go-ahead from medical officials before she continued pole dancing in pregnancy.
"As I am so fit and healthy, the doctor said my body would be worse off if I was to completely stop.
“I was incredibly lucky as I didn't have any morning sickness or fatigue and I praise exercise for that. I continued to perform up until 17 weeks but I made sure I didn't do anything to harm the baby,” she said.
Jade added that despite the clearance she got for the activity, she was very careful on what she wore on her body, adding that she avoided anything silk.
The professional dancer said that the newborn gives them so much joy, especially after she had been told that the only chance she had of taking in would be through IVF.
The new mother said the reason why she earlier thought she was not ready to be a mother was partly because of her infertility fear.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that a woman named Peace Okeke-Amadi narrated how she carried her pregnancy for two years and four months before she gave birth.
The video of the testimony was shared by Pastor Desmond Chuks, a senior clergyman at Glorious Ministries International.
The woman said that she got pregnant on December 20, 2017, after she had waited for more than five years to conceive.
