Physical activity does not increase the risk of miscarriage in a healthy pregnancy and will result in enhanced physical fitness. These improvements depend on the design of the program and the effort of the client. The magical properties of water including buoyancy, thermal conductivity, turbulence, hydrostatic pressure and resistance, work together to provide a safe, effective environment for pre and post-natal woman. This research-based lecture will address issues facing pre and post-natal women, aquatic exercise design strategies and successful cross-training where land meets water.
