Summer holidays loom, and we are seeing an increase in swimwear sales, as our expectant mums head for a 'Baby Moon' holiday before the arrival.
We are in the process of writing a style guide for choosing the right maternity swimsuit for your shape, which is timely as we have added a couple of new swimsuits recently.
The majority of ladies who buy swimsuits in our shops are buying a one to join a local aqua natal class. These are great to keep mobile and fit during pregnancy, but it is also good to meet other local expectant mums, as you are likely to remain friends after the birth.
Many pregnant women take up swimming as the low impact nature of it gives them the opportunity to exercise without stress and strain. Its the one place you don't feel the extra weight of your bump!
Swimming gives your circulation a workout and helps with toning, and provided you have no complications you should be able to swim for all 9 months. (Check with your midwife first)
There are lots of theories on which stroke to do - but you should avoid breast stroke if you have back or pelvic problems.
Happy swimming, and don't forget to check out one of our fab maternity swimsuits at Everyday Maternity
