Prenatal vitamins are a must for all of us who are trying to conceive. (And those who are pregnant. AND those who are nursing…Wow, that’s a lot of pill popping!) But did you know that many moms and moms-to-be dread taking prenatal pills and gummies? They can be monotonous, hard to swallow, and difficult to digest without experiencing an icky feeling. Plus, many prenatal pills and gummies lack a lot of the essential elements necessary for a healthy, modern pregnancy.
Mommy Water—a complete prenatal vitamin drink—mixes things up by offering a flavorful alternative to forgettable pills. Created by a team of medical doctors, nutritionists, and beverage formulators, Mommy Water provides everything you’d get in a traditional prenatal vitamin—plus a whole lot more—in one deliciously drinkable daily beverage.
Here’s what sets Mommy Water apart from antiquated, unappetizing prenatal pills.
- It helps alleviate (morning) sickness
Breaking down concentrated pills can upset stomachs. And if you’re you’re expecting and experiencing morning sickness, pills can make you feel worse. Mommy Water is designed for easier absorption and contains Pyridoxine (vitamin B6), which helps alleviate nausea and vomiting associated with morning sickness.
- It helps you stay hydrated
Mommy Water is packed with electrolytes to help combat dehydration—a common problem, pregnant or not—and improve absorption of all the great vitamins and minerals. Why is hydration important during pregnancy? It reduces constipation (which affects up to 40% of pregnant women!), keeps swelling in check, and is vital to keeping up with our pregnant bodies’ and babies’ demands. Reminder: hydration is very important before and after pregnancy, too!
- It’s filled with fiber
Mommy Water includes a prebiotic fiber source that helps relieve constipation by stimulating the normal, beneficial bacteria in the colon. The fiber can also help you feel fuller longer, helping you with portion control and sensible eating.
- It tastes delicious
Whether you dread choking down horse pills, are craving something sweet, or just need a good excuse to drink up your daily dose of water, Mommy Water offers a enjoyable option. It can also be added to smoothies, yogurt, and oatmeal—or even mixed in with soda water for a tasty mocktail. (BTW: Mommy Water is sweetened with natural stevia, so it is safe for women with gestational diabetes.)
- It helps reduce “pregnancy brain”
Feeling forgetful or a little foggy? Mommy Water can help with that. It’s formulated with choline, which aids in fetal brain development, and according to emerging research, can also assist in reducing “pregnancy brain.”
