Dara Torres: passing on maternal advice

Remember Dara Torres? The 41 year old American swimmer with the killer post-baby body? http://babybumpproject.blogspot.com/2008/07/dara-torres-insane-body-at-41.html

Seems as though she was giving her fellow swimmers a bit of advice about birth in the locker room pre-swim:

"She was actually talking about childbirth in the ready room," relay teammate Kara Lynn Joyce said of Torres, who gave birth two years ago. "She said it was painful. Swimming is painful, but nothing compares to that."

"Somehow childbirth came up and we were mimicking being in the stirrups and giving birth," she told reporters that day. "And I was trying to tell them that it actually wasn't that bad -- not the childbirth part, but afterward. After having a kid and getting back into shape, I felt like I was stronger and more flexible. They were like, 'Great, you showed us we can do that.'"
