The following positive effects of aquafitness can be found in the book "Aquafitness in der Schwangerschaft" by Sandra Eberlein, p.41 ff
Based on years of professional experience and pregnancy observations, the following findings can be summarized:
Appropriate and regular training increases the general physical performance during pregnancy and thus promotes the birth process.
Aerobic endurance exercises promote blood circulation and improve the oxygen supply for mother and child.
The hydrostatic pressure of the water causes fluid accumulation in the arms and legs to be pushed back and stimulates kidney activity.
Balance exercises improve posture due to the buoyancy of the water.
In water, the spine, joints, tendons and ligaments are relieved.
Working against water resistance leads to a strengthening of the musculoskeletal system.
Movement in water regulates the tension within the muscles.
The body loses up to 90% of its weight when immersed in water, thus relieving back pain. The intervertebral discs can "inflate".
Special water exercises for the lower body help to maintain and strengthen the pelvic floor muscles.
Contact with other pregnant women and an exchange of experiences among each other serve to reduce anxiety. Acquaintances or even friendships are made.
The stress tolerance during birth can increase.
After the birth, the recovery time of the muscle-ligament apparatus is shortened if regular sport was done during pregnancy.
The physical and psychological well-being of the mother is transferred to the baby.
Feeling of lightness despite fullness of body.
With aqua-fitness a pregnant woman can keep herself fit until the end of a normal pregnancy and enjoy the relaxation and breathing exercises.
