Can a physically (muscles) weak person safely have a baby?

2 doctors agree
In brief: Yes
In general, physical weakness will not prevent a baby from developing normally, nor should it prevent a safe vaginal delivery.
Women with muscular disorders such as muscular dystrophy or multiple sclerosis are able to carry pregnancies without complication, in most cases.
