Tips For Attending

  • It is not necessary to be able to swim. If you are a non-swimmer or you are unsure of your swimming ability, then tell the instructor before entering the pool.

  • Avoid eating a big meal less than 2 hours before a class, eat something 'light' to avoid feeling nauseous.

  • Many women find wearing support bra underneath their swimwear to be more comfortable.

  • Arrive early to discuss your wellbeing with your instructor. Inform them of any changes, however insignificant it may seem.

  • Drink fluids before, during and after exercising. Pools can be humid so please bring a bottle of water to keep by the side if needed!

  • You will always be encouraged to work at your own pace and level. Do not be afraid to decrease your own exercise intensity level!

Come along and meet other expectant mums on the same journey!
