Phew, this sum­mer is a scorcher! So, if you’re lucky enough to have a swim­ming pool, head for a float, or visit your lo­cal pub­lic pool, gym or spa – a dip will do way more than just cool you down. If you’re in your sec­ond or third trimester, the al­most ze­ro­grav­ity ef­fect you’ll ex­pe­ri­ence while float­ing will help to counter the strains of car­ry­ing a grow­ing bump. Floatation is an amaz­ing way to take the weight off your feet when you’re preg­nant. “There are so many ben­e­fits of floatation in preg­nancy,” says Su­san Baines, mid­wife and preg­nancy aquat­ics in­struc­tor in the UK. Now you’re preg­nant, you’re also likely to nat­u­rally be more buoy­ant.
