Expecting Mom Question of the Month
How far into my pregnancy can I swim?
|Many women worry about risk of infection if their water breaks in the pool.
Exercising in the water has so many benefits for pregnant women: improved circulation, improved posture and a more restful sleep just to name a few. However, if you are showing any signs of labour, it would be best to avoid public pools.
One of my favorite birth books is The Birth Partner
by Penny Simpkin. Click here
for some of the signs of labour that Penny outlines in her book.
