If you are an expectant mom, we know the excitement and anxiety you may be feeling about growing a healthy baby. Now more than ever, you’ll need to pay attention to your body and what you are doing to keep it in top condition. Achieving peak health, however, is not always easy during pregnancy. Beyond increasing fatigue, strange cravings or certain food aversions, you may also be suffering from morning sickness and frequent vomiting. Pregnancy nausea can be a real threat to the nutrition and hydration your body needs during the next nine months.
At IV Drips, we recognize the overwhelming importance of fueling a pregnant body – not only for the health and well-being of the mom-to-be but also for the development and health of the unborn baby. That’s why we proudly offer Prenatal Drip treatments, a customized concoction for everything your body needs for hydration and stabilization during this crucial time of life. Our Prenatal Drip includes two main components: Hydration and Vitamin B6.
Pregnancy is not the time to slack on your water intake. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), pregnant women “should drink 8 to 12 cups (64 to 96 ounces) of water every day. Water has many benefits. It aids digestion and helps form the amniotic fluid around the fetus. Water also helps nutrients circulate in the body and helps waste leave the body.”
While dehydration can bring a host of disruptive symptoms for any individual, it can be especially dangerous for a pregnant woman. If you are not getting enough water in your body on a daily basis, it may lead to the following serious complications during or even after pregnancy:
- Low levels of amniotic fluid
- Poor fetal development
- Preterm labor
- Low production of breast milk
- Nutrient deficiency
Drinking enough water takes discipline during pregnancy, but for those who experience frequent bouts of sickness, good hydration can seem impossible.
According to the March of Dimes, at least 7 in 10 pregnant women have morning sickness in the first trimester. However, some women experience nausea throughout their entire pregnancy. If you are nauseous or frequently vomiting, you may find it very difficult to stay hydrated and get the vitamin and nutrients your body needs to support a growing baby.
Beyond ample fluids and hydrations, our Prenatal Drip also includes vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 is a natural anti-nausea vitamin, which means you are not only replenishing your body with the fluids it needs but we can also help you avoid losing fluids in the future.
Pregnant women love our Prenatal Drip as a quick and highly convenient means to not only feel their best, but foster a healthier pregnancy. Call IV Drips in NYC to learn more about how our Prenatal Drip can help you fight fatigue and reduce pregnancy nausea. Your baby deserves it!
