Before attempting to conceive, a woman should drink an adequate supply of alkaline ionised water to help her body prepare for birth, avoid morning sickness and have a healthy baby. During pregnancy the mother-to-be loses alkaline minerals to the fetus and the placenta. As the fetus develops during its 9 months in the womb and as it receives nutrients through the umbilical cord for energy and growth – these nutrients also create waste products which are then discharged through the placenta. This burnt waste creates an acidic discharge that the mother’s body must neutralise – failure to do so properly could increase the baby’s chance of being born with jaundice. As the mother’s body constantly balances with acid and alkaline, and naturally seeks buffers to neutralise and alkalise any increase in acidity – some of these buffers are sought from calcium stored in her bones and teeth. Morning sickness during the early stages of pregnancy is a signal of dehydration of the mother and fetus. As the fetus develops and a trillion cell divisions take place, with each new cell requiring an input of water, pregnancy creates a high demand for water. It makes sense at this point to have a regular input of alkaline ionised water, and the smaller the cluster the better for penetration and absorption.
According to information provided by The USGS Water Science School, new-born babies have the highest percentage of body water at around 78%, which reduces to about 65% at one year-old. Based on all the above documentation, it would make good sense for any woman considering pregnancy to consume alkaline ionised water to prepare her special little person for an improved start to life.
