The Pregnancy Drip is a must for moms-to-be and their developing babies. Even if you are religious about taking your prenatal vitamins, the absorption rate of oral vitamins is significantly less than when delivered intravenously. Did you know that previously experts thought the placenta was only a one-way street, allowing vitamins and minerals to pass through from mom to baby? Research is now showing that the placenta acts as an “umpire”, actively determining who actually gets what nutrients (mom or baby). So, if mom has low levels of vitamins and minerals it can mean far less nutrients for baby, which can increase the risk of premature birth.
Don’t worry – the Pregnancy Drip has your bases covered! Vitamin B12 is vital for nervous system health and when combined with folic acid, can help prevent birth defects such as spina bifida. Our double dose of B-Complex has a mixture of important B vitamins that help reduce the risk of birth defects, relieve pregnancy-related symptoms, and give mom a much-needed boost of energy. The Vitamin C boost helps support a healthy immune system for mom and baby and is necessary for development. Research shows that many women in their childbearing years have a zinc deficiency, so zinc is especially important during pregnancy and can help reduce the risk of preterm births and prolonged labor. Lastly, the Pregnancy Drip includes an IM shot of Vitamin D which is vital for calcium and phosphate absorption – helping to keep teeth, bones, and muscles healthy and strong for mom and baby.
For pregnant mommas that suffer with hyperemesis or nausea, ask your nurse about adding zofran, benadryl, and/or an extra bag of saline for some much-needed relief and hydration.
Let’s be honest, growing a human inside you is a huge job and takes a ton of energy and love. The Pregnancy Drip gives your incredible body and growing baby the gift of hydration and nutrients vital to a healthy pregnancy.
