Importance of Water Intake in Pregnancy


You should drink more water during your pregnancy as the baby growing inside your womb is 75% water. It needs you to drink a sufficient amount of water to maintain the water level for its growth. You have to stay fully-hydrated all the time in pregnancy as feeling thirsty is not good for you or your baby.

  1. Boosts energy

Dehydration results in headaches, mood swings, and dizziness which is serious for your health as well as the baby. Increasing in the amount of drinking water will boost your energy levels and keep you feeling refreshed and energised.

  1. Helps baby’s growth 

Your baby is 75% water, which will decrease to 65% after they are born. This is the main reason why you need to drink a huge amount of water in pregnancy. If the water level in your body is ideal, the baby will grow fast.

  1. Prevents pregnancy sickness

Drinking water is a great way to avoid nausea and pregnancy weakness. Water intake helps keep your hydrated if morning sickness is common throughout your pregnancy.

  1. Helps with constipation & swelling

Excessive heat or increased body temperature can cause swelling around your fetus, face, and on your feet. The pregnancy swelling can be reduced through short, continuous sips of water throughout the day. 

  1. Helps with breast milk production

Water intake is essential for the production of break milk, during both your pregnancy and postpartum.
