Prenatal Swimming Lessons

If you are expecting a child and are unable to swim, we strongly advise you to attend our prenatal swimming class. Swimming is a great exercise for pregnant women to help them relax. It helps you sleep better at night and builds your strength for labor. In fact, the weightlessness and enhanced buoyancy will make learning to swim much easier.

Swimming is an excellent cardiovascular exercise during pregnancy. It helps to move oxygen and nutrients throughout your body while also reducing tension and relieving pressure on your lower back. It is quite beneficial in lowering water retention and edema. Swimming may be both therapeutic and soothing. Try it!

We are Singapore’s top swim school that offers swimming lessons to pregnant ladies. Our indoor heated pool facilities offer a safe and comfortable environment in which to learn to swim. Class sizes are in small groups to improve the learning experience. Each session lasts around 45 minutes and includes 15 exercises.

Is Swimming Safe to Do While Pregnant?

We have great news: no specific risks are associated with swimming while pregnant. “[Swimming] is a low-impact activity with no chance of a fall or a high-impact injury,” Lucky Sekhon, MD, a reproductive endocrinologist, infertility expert, and board-certified obstetrician and gynecologist, adds.

Dr. Sekhon recommends using additional caution when stepping on a slick, wet pool deck or getting out of the pool. When pregnant, it is a good idea to utilize the pool steps.

Swimming is The Best Exercise During Pregnancy

Swimming is one of the safest and most helpful forms of exercise during pregnancy. Swimming when pregnant has several health and fitness advantages, as well as stress alleviation and enjoyment. Pulling a few freestyle laps or even breaststroke is a great way to get some low-impact aerobic exercise while improving circulation and increasing oxygen levels—exactly what your body needs when pregnant.

Swimming strengthens every muscle in your body, and since you are weightless in the water, you may do it safely and pleasantly throughout your pregnancy. When you’re pregnant, nothing beats floating in cool water!

More Perks of Prenatal Swimming

  • Exercise is generally recommended throughout pregnancy since it maintains the body healthy and prepares it for the rigors of delivery. Aside from the usual advantages of physical activity, there are some additional reasons to consider swimming during your pregnancy:
  • Swimming is a low-impact activity that will benefit your bones and joints. Being near water can also assist in relieving some of the strain on your body caused by the additional weight you’re carrying during pregnancy.
  • Better rest! A better night’s sleep may result from swimming, as with many other types of cardiovascular exercise. Because sleep can be difficult at times during pregnancy, this is an advantage that should not be underestimated.
  • Water may be an excellent pain reliever, especially during pregnancy when you may suffer edema or discomfort due to weight gain. Even during labor, using a shower, bath, or pool of water can relieve the discomfort you may be feeling.
  • Swimming may benefit your unborn child’s brain system. Swimming by a pregnant mother rat changed the brain development of her offspring in a good way in one experimentTrusted Source. Swimming may protect newborns against hypoxia-ischemia, a neurological condition, according to this study, but the jury is still out until additional information and research are available.
  • Swimming is generally safe during all three trimesters. So there’s no need to be concerned about quitting after you’ve reached a specific time in your pregnancy.
