Importance of Drinking Water During Pregnancy

Importance of Drinking Water During Pregnancy

Our body cannot produce enough water on its own and to replenish it, we need to drink water every day as per our calorie intake. Pregnant women, who are advised an increased calorie intake during the second trimester, need to drink higher amounts of pure water. When it comes to drinking pure water for your baby’s health, nothing can beat the water from a home water purifier, like Pureit.

Pregnant women should consume 300ml of fluid additional to their regular fluid intake.

When a woman is pregnant, she needs to consume more fluids because of the following reasons:

  • Fluid circulation
  • Amniotic fluid levels
  • Higher blood volume
  • Optimal absorption of water-soluble vitamins

The water also helps the growth of bones and teeth in the growing fetus, due to the presence of fluoride present in most municipal waters.

EFSA* recommends that pregnant women should drink 2.3 liters of water/day while breastfeeding women should drink 2.7 liters/day.

Amniotic fluid (fluid that surrounds the unborn baby) levels are very important for the proper growth of the baby during pregnancy and also to ensure a good neonatal result, once the baby is born.

In fact, studies suggest that women who have low levels of amniotic fluid during pregnancy should drink a larger amount of water to increase these levels. Additionally, oral hydration can also lower the risk of having a cesarean section and complications in the unborn baby’s health.
