Some of the benefits include aiding in our weight management, reducing hemorrhoids, promotes nutrition to our babies and reducing preterm labor. We recommend that each woman drinks 64 ounces of water a day, plus an additional 8 ounces during activities that promote increased heart rate or sweating.
We know through science that are adult bodies are about 60% water. During pregnancy our needs for water increase with a growing baby. Our babies are surrounded by water based fluid. During your pregnancy, when you take a vitamin, or eat the nutrients, they are absorbed into your cells and transported to your baby with the aide of water.
After your baby is born, your need for water increases with breast feeding too. If your baby is nursing every 2-3 hours and taking in just 2-3 ounces, your water consumption should increase to 3-4 more 8-ounce glasses of water a day. One easy way to know if you are getting enough water is too look at your urine and make sure it is mostly clear or lite yellow in color.

New Birth Company infuses water with herbs that enhance our immune system, pregnancy and ability to rest. To help you become a better water drinker, we are infusing water everyday for you to try, and then you can also try it at home.
