If you operate a float center, than you have heard the question “Is floating while pregnant a good idea?” a thousand times, I’m sure. So is it a good idea? What are the benefits specific to a pregnant woman? Is there anything to be concerned about?
Important Note: Any woman who is going to float while pregnant should get the approval of their midwife, OB or other provider beforehand.

So whenever someone asks if floating while pregnant is okay, please always let them know they should talk to their doctor first.
