Is it safe to use a swim spa when pregnant?

While regular exercise is great during most pregnancies, in general, you should always speak with your doctor before investing in a swim spa that you will be heavily using while pregnant, or before using your existing spa. The main concern is the adjustment of your body temperature when submerged.

Your doctor may recommend lowering the temperature of your swim spa, only going in for short sessions, or avoiding it altogether. In general, swimming while pregnant can be a therapeutic way to reduce joint pain and get some exercise in, so long as the temperature and overall activity are deemed safe and monitored by a healthcare professional!
