  • No.
    You could cause the placenta to separate from the uterus from the force of the water impacting the body.
    It is always recommended for a pregnant woman to ease herself into the water naturally, even if she is in her first trimester.

  • No. No belly flops. No canon balls. Not even hopping into the shallow end. It's not safe.
