Before we become pregnant, many mothers think about what vitamins, foods and drinks they will consume to make sure that they keep themselves and their unborn child healthy.  Rarely are we told that a daily drink of Coconut water will do our bodies and our babies a world of good.  The benefits of coconut water for pregnant women are below: 

  1. Coconut water is a beverage that contains the same salt concentration as the blood of mammals/humans. It can replace the loss of natural salt and fluid that the body releases. 
  2. Coconut water helps to strengthen the immune system because it is rich in lauric acid which is used by our bodies to fight disease.
  3. Coconut water helps with digestion and helps to treat heartburn.
  4. It is natural and a great way to hydrate the body.
  5. Coconut water is a natural diuretic and can help with Urinary Tract Infection.
  6. Coconut water cools the body and is best at its natural temperature.
  7. It is full of the minerals that our bodies need.
  8. The oil or butter made from the coconut is excellent for the skin.
  9. Coconut water is the best way to restore electrolyte balance.

With all of these great attributes, Coconut water should be a recommended daily beverage for everyone and definitely gets our Welcoming Womb stamp of approval.  In this case there's no boiling or brewing but your body and baby will will definitely be blissful.
