Why would you want to?  No harm, no foul.

But what you might be seeing is a symptom of misconfigured
process-control directives, leading apache to need to recycle
processes too frequently.

For example, make sure that there is a substantial distance between
MinSpareServers and MaxSpareServers and that MaxRequestsPerChild is
not set too low.
