Drinking Enough Water During Pregnancy

We all know the importance of drinking enough water each day, especially Fontis Water, but did you know it is even more important when you are pregnant?  Remember, you are not just hydrating for one, you are hydrating for two! According to What to Expect, there are many reasons you should continually stay hydrated during pregnancy.

One of the most important reasons is that water helps deliver the vitamins and minerals you are consuming to the baby.  According to the article, water ” … facilitates the absorption of essential nutrients into the cells and transports vitamins, trace elements, minerals, and hormones to the blood cells. It’s those nutrient-rich blood cells that reach the placenta and ultimately your baby — all with the help of H20.” 

Water also helps to cleanse your system and your baby’s. Drinking lots of water can help you avoid painful UTI’s and can help move solid wastes easier through the digestive path.  Water is a natural coolant for your body, and anyone who has ever been pregnant knows how one’s temperature rises! Drink water and stay cool.  The article went on to explain how drinking more water will also help your skin feel less scratchy and can even help you maintain a clearer complexion.
