Hydrating Blended Juice For Pregnant Mamas
In pregnancy, our bodies can become easily dehydrated from morning sickness, expanded blood volume as well as providing the amniotic fluid for our baby.
The consequences of dehydration whilst expecting can include nausea, cramping and constipation, which is pretty much the last thing you need!
Try this healthy blender juice which will not only keep you well hydrated, it will also give you a dose of vitamins from the fruit, and cool you down in the hot weather. Feel free to adapt it to whatever fruits and veg you have on hand.
Add some of the Healthy Mummy Pregnancy Smoothie into this juice to get an extra boost of pregnancy nutrients in between meals.
If you want to ensure you’re getting all the right nutrients for you and your baby, the Healthy Mummy Pregnancy Eating & Exercise Book is ideal. Full of tips and healthy recipes, it’s the definitive guide for a healthy pregnancy.
