Pregnancy forces the spine and shoulders to round forward and the pelvis to tilt out of alignment, but gentle swimming strengthens the muscles and offsets this tendency.
The water that protects against overheating and supports the joints and ligaments while exercising, preventing injuries. If you swim, you burn calories, feel less tired, sleep better, and are better equipped to handle the physical and emotional challenges of pregnancy. Swimming helps you keep your weight within a healthy range, and some women say that swimming makes them feel less bloated.
