A newborn baby knows no fear of the water element. For the first nine months of its life, it has lived in an aquatic environment, in it's mother's womb.During the first phase of development which lasts till about 5 months, the baby is well adapted to immersion and will automatically hold it's breath when submerged in warm water. Without this 'diving reflex' it would have already drowned in the womb. Under professional instruction it is possible, to keep the diving reflex operating till about 10 months as long as it is used regularly during swim lessons. For children who have gone past their diving reflex, I will use a different approach to teach water safety and the vital skill of swimming with amazing and non-traumatic results.
