Classes of water-breathing training help normalize the tone of the regulatory systems and enhance adaptive capacity in pregnant women. These processes are based on the increase of functional reserves of the respiratory system and the optimization of regional hemodynamics, as well as increased production of thyroid hormones, Cortisol and insulin and an increase in the activity of antioxidant systems. The combined use of breathing exercises and aqua gymnastics in pregnant women improves the health indicators of newborns due to the normalization of the utero-placental blood flow, mainly on the part of uterine arteries. The obtained results reveal a number of essential physiological laws that underlie adaptation of the vegetative-vascular system of the body of women to the conditions of pregnancy and the impact of physical activity and breathing exercises on this process.
