floating while pregnant
Floating through pregnancy: high blood pressure
My first session was SUCH a relief, I vowed to float 1 to 3 times a week through the end of the pregnancy. This vow was made not as a result of my blood pressure specifically, but out of the desire to have some real ME time. Something I’d been neglecting to do up until that point. Time that was free of discomfort, constant multitasking and overstimulation. Time when I could truly rest, reboot, connect with my unborn child, and make up for the lack of good sleep....
The double heartbeat: floating your way to motherhood
Q. What have been the greatest benefits you received from floating while pregnant?
Karla: Hearing the baby’s heartbeat was a big one. Long before I heard it in the doctor’s office I could hear it in the tank; and much earlier than I expected. This has allowed me to bond with my unborn in ways I never thought possible....
I can lay on my belly, and it’s glorious. I put my chin in my hands and my elbows on the bottom of the tank. I float there, belly down in the water. After a while I turn over onto my back. It’s like the best mattress ever. It’s better than a mattress. There are no pressure points where all my extra weight is grinding against my joints. Nothing pushing against my sore loosened hips. My spine gets to stretch and extend, my pelvis relaxes, the Epsom salts work their magic.....
Frequently asked questions
How does massage help me when I'm pregnant?
How does floating help me when I'm pregnant?
There are many benefits to floating, but perhaps no one finds more immediate relief than pregnant women! With its sense of weightless, you'll find immediate relief from sore back muscles, aching joints, and swelling. Many women also enjoy being able to rest in positions like being belly-down that aren't possible at home.
How does a yoga private lesson help me when I'm pregnant?
There is literally no other time in your life when your body will go through more changes than it is now. Your ligaments are relaxing, your joints are loosening, some parts of your body are stretching while others are being compacted, and your center of balance is shifting.
Is this safe? (especially in light of COVID-19)
How is prenatal massage different from a regular massage?
Prenatal massages are adapted for the anatomical changes you go through during pregnancy. In a traditional massage, you might spend half the time lying face-down on your stomach (which is uncomfortable with a baby belly) and half the time facing up (a position that puts pressure on a major blood vessel that can disrupt blood flow to your baby and leave you feeling nauseous).
Is floating safe while pregnant?
Can I use my package in less than (or more than) 6 weeks?
Can I swap out the yoga private for another massage?
Sure, no problem!
While we include a yoga private lesson because it we know from experience how helpful it can be, and it gives you something that you can do for yourself at home, sometimes you just want pure rest and relaxation, and that's ok.
