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.
