How many can I drink per day?
We recommend the following as a guide, but we always recommend you consult your health professional to determine suitability for your individual needs and health records.
Pre Pregnancy – 1-2 Aquamamma per day (3 months)
During Pregnancy – 1-3 Aquamamma per day (9 months)
Labour – 1 Aquamamma per hour
After Pregnancy / Breastfeeding – 1-3 Aquamamma per day (6 months)
Can I drink these during labour?
Absolutely. Some people say being in labour is like running a marathon and we say… it’s more like running ten. Back to back. Many labours last longer than the four hours or so it takes for most capable runners to get through a marathon. Aquamamma is designed to take care of your electrolyte needs in labour, and is also low in sugar and sodium making it a healthier option than sports drinks or oral rehydration solutions.
Why is hydration so important?
Hydration is always important but for women who are trying to get pregnant, who are pregnant, or who have just given birth – it is vital. During this time, your body’s working overtime to create and keep a tiny human alive. That takes A LOT of energy. So your body requires more fluid than usual. If you don’t keep your fluids up you can become dehydrated, which could have an adverse impact on your health and even the health of your baby.
How much fluid should I be drinking each day?
Pregnant women should aim to drink 2.3 litres (around 10-12 glasses) of fluid each day and for breastfeeding women it’s 2.6 litres (around 12 – 15 glasses). If you’re vomiting, exercising or living in heat this could be even more.
