What and how much to drink when pregnant

Aim for 9 glasses of fluid per day. Water or reduced fat milk are the best choices. If the weather is hot, you have vomited or if you are constipated you may need more than this.

Suitable drinks for pregnancy include water, whether straight from the tap (if safe in your area), or bottled (either carbonated or still), milk and fruit juices. Juice can be high in sugar, but providing it is pure fruit, one 125mL glass can also count as part of your daily fruit and vegetable intake. Soup also counts and can provide a good serving of beneficial nutrients too.
