During pregnancy, most women feel a lot of things they’ve never felt before. For example, changing hormones lead to unexpected mood swings, the growing belly causes round ligament pain, and the baby’s first kicks feel like fluttering butterflies in your belly.
And then, of course, there’s the near-constant nausea.
The vomiting and queasiness of morning sickness can last all day — and sometimes even all nine months!
Lone Star IV Medics wants you to feel as comfortable as possible while you await your little bundle of joy. That’s why we offer safe IV fluids for pregnancy that help alleviate your morning sickness.
Alleviate Symptoms of Morning Sickness & Dehydration
Morning sickness is most common in the first trimester of pregnancy. The cause is not totally known, but there are several possible triggers, such as low blood sugars, changing hormones, and stress or exhaustion.
But whatever the cause may be, morning sickness almost always leads to dehydration and depleted nutrients.
Lone Star IV Medics can help combat your morning sickness by giving you IV therapy during pregnancy. Our treatments provide you with all the fluids, vitamins, and minerals you need to support your body as it cares for you and your growing baby.
Getting IV fluids during pregnancy can also help you say goodbye to that awful, nauseated feeling you’ve had for months, as we can easily add anti-nausea medication like Zofran to your IV. This medicine is safe for pregnancy and effective against morning sickness, so you can feel like yourself again.
IV therapy for pregnancy is about helping mom feel better — but it also offers huge benefits for the baby. Firstly, an IV treatment gives you plenty of fluids to keep your body hydrated. Hydration is critical during pregnancy, as the placenta is formed by water. If you’re dehydrated, your placenta may not be as effective at carrying nutrients to your baby.
Secondly, IV therapy replenishes any nutrients you may be lacking in your system. This is important, as many of these nutrients are essential for a healthy baby’s development.
If you have a vitamin deficiency during pregnancy, you and your baby are at an increased risk for complications like:
- Neural tube defects
- Reduced brain development
You can ensure that you have enough vitamins in your system by using IV therapy during pregnancy and keeping your vitamin levels high for you and baby.
