Any guy who’s been with a woman in labor knows about water’s almost magical ability to relax her. In this guest post, Jenny Willis talks about some of the other benefits of water therapy.
Water therapy can have many great benefits for pregnant women. Every woman has a different experience during pregnancy, and many women have radically different experiences each time they are pregnant. Typical pregnancy symptoms such as fatigue and body aches can be treated with hydrotherapy, as well as more extreme symptoms such as pain from shifting pelvic muscles. Doctors, mid wives, and birthing centers all agree that water can offer many soothing benefits for pregnant women, but no extremely hot temperatures as it can be harmful to the pregnancy.
