Clean Water for Healthy Pregnancy

We all know how important it is to stay hydrated throughout the day but it’s even more important when you are carrying a child. During pregnancy it is vital that you stay hydrated, don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink water, and make sure you eat hydrating foods. What is equally important is making sure you are drinking clean, bacteria free water. We suggest having a complimentary water test done in your home to determine what is in your water and what the best option is for filtration and purification.

Drinking water during pregnancy can help reduce bloat and water retention which is a major bonus! When you’re pregnant, the last thing you want is to be carrying water weight. The normal recommendation of 8 glasses of water per day can help eliminate the problem and provide some comfort and much needed hydration. (The American Pregnancy Association recommends 10 glasses per day while pregnant) You may be making more trips to the bathroom but it will be worth the extra effort and will help your baby develop the necessary kidney function to filter out waste as well.

Speaking of kidney function, water provides essential nutrients and oxygen to your vital organs and your baby’s as well. During these crucial developmental stages, staying hydrated is just as important for you as adequate rest and a well-balanced diet.  

The quality of the water you are consuming while pregnant is something you must pay close attention to. Testing water forlead, nitrates, pesticides andother contaminants can prevent harmful side effects to you and your baby. Whole House Water Filtration can provide clean, delicious, chemical free water options for your entire home. In addition, a Reverse Osmosis system can be placed in your kitchen for drinking and cooking.
