BENEFITS OF FLOATATION
Discover the blissful benefits of letting water support your pregnant body.
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.
