floating in Portland while pregnantDid you know that expecting mothers love floating more than almost anyone else? It turns out that being weightless when you’re used to carrying around a growing baby is a wonderful relief.

And many women report that some of their first ‘conversations’ with their babies happen in the float tank, where the noises and distractions of the outside world are eliminated. 

If you know anyone who is pregnant and interested in floating, make sure to send them these great tips and positions for floating while pregnant, written by one of the Float On staff who floated throughout the entirety of her own pregnancy.


Enjoy this video from Alaskan float center owners, Kirsten and Lena, who also run a birth center. They present on some exciting findings from studies they’ve been running out of their facilities.
