Swimming During Pregnancy

As a physical fitness activity suitable for expecting mothers, swimming is as close to ideal as it gets. Even relieving common pains and strains.

Swimming is quite safe, the impacts on your body are minimal and you can swim throughout all trimesters without much difficulty or changes. Water typically feels refreshing and 20 or more minutes can make you feel quite relaxed throughout the day as well as possibly relieve some pains and strains that are common in pregnancy. Although do not neglect the importance of hydration when moving in the water.
