Are you drinking enough water during your pregnancy?

are you drinking enough water?

This one is a simple one but it is really easy to forget this basic need when busy. When you are dehydrated you can feel dizzy and thirsty and you may have a headache. You might not be going to loo very often either.

So, pregnancy can be a time to establish some simple habits for wellbeing. Some women make a note of what they are drinking, others just make sure they always have water with them.

The Tommy’s website talks about aiming to drink about 1.5litres of water each day so a water bottle can be an easy way to track this.

In addition to water you can include fruit teas, milk and juice.

Always seek medical support if you are concerned about yourself or your baby. Even if it is just a feeling that something isn’t right.

Book a session with me if you have questions, need some additional support or preparation for birth & baby.
