Swimming can actually help induce labor. The weightless feeling you get in the water takes the pressure of baby off of everything so your body is able to relax so it can do what it's supposed to to start labor. It doesn't work for everyone but the some that I know who have done it said they would do it again. It's kinda like having a water birth.
