Swimming is one of the most recommended exercises to do during pregnancy due to its low impact on the body. Also, it’s known for offering a lot of mental and physical benefits to the expectant mother. Besides, water makes your body lighter, allowing a better flexibility and ease on your movements.

It’s recommended to swim at least two or three times per week during pregnancy, just remember to go swimming at least one or two hours after eating, to be safe. It’s also important to warm up and do some stretching before starting.

These are some of the benefits that swimming offers:

• Improvement of your cardiovascular system
• Diminished stress and anxiety
• Strong body and toned muscles
• Lower edemas
• Released joints

Remember, exercising will give you lots of benefits during and after pregnancy!
