Find your position
“To float well in a swimming pool, the water needs to be deep enough to support your weight,” says Susan. “So when you’re standing upright in the pool, the water needs to reach to at least your chest height. You’ll find your own way to float comfortably, and any position is OK if you feel relaxed and well supported.” You might find floating on your back, with your arms and legs stretched a little out to the side, suits you best. Or you may end up lying on your front with your arms stretched forwards in front of you and a pool noodle tucked under your chin to keep your face out of the water. “Or some moms-to-be prefer to float at an angle in the water,” adds Susan. Just find the right position for you, and you’ll soak up all the amazing benefits.
