Excercise and fitness during preganancy is important and can help you get through one of the biggest days of your life! Excercising in water allows you to feel light and free, helps with swelling in the hands and feet, eases aches and pains and gives you a great opportunity for relaxation too.
Start any time from 20 weeks of pregnancy and continue until your due date.
