IV Therapy During Pregnancy: Is It Safe?

Pregnancy can be an exciting journey for everyone involved but it can come with some challenges. Growing a little human inside of you takes a lot of energy and may cause you to feel many emotions, accompanied by physical symptoms.

IV Therapy during pregnancy: is it safe?

As you grow your precious baby, your body will begin lacking in essential minerals and requiring more vitamins than it needed before pregnancy. You may also experience morning sickness, excessive exhaustion, and just not “feeling right,” all of which are typical symptoms during pregnancy. Even if your symptoms are “normal,” they don’t negate the fact that they’re making your daily life more difficult.

This is when a pregnant woman needs extra support in terms of IV therapy during pregnancy.

How does it reduce morning sickness?

One of the challenges pregnant women face, especially during the first trimester, is morning sickness and nausea/vomiting. Morning sickness is inconvenient; sometimes, it can cause extreme dehydration and require hospitalization.

With IV therapy, we can keep you hydrated, especially when you are unable to take anything orally.

If I’m dehydrated, why wouldn’t I just go to the emergency room?

Unfortunately, most hospitals have the policy that if you are not 20 weeks plus, you must be seen in the emergency room.

Since COVID, emergency rooms have been overcrowded and short-staffed, causing crazy wait times. With IV therapy with The IV Nurses, we come to you, whether it’s in your home, office, or hotel. This makes it easier to get your IV fluids with less wait time.

Is IV Therapy safe while I am pregnant?

Yes! You can do IV therapy while pregnant. An IV therapy or infusion is a convenient way to get the minerals and vitamins your body needs during pregnancy. It helps reduce morning sickness, boost your energy, reduce swelling, and minimize nausea and constipation, among other benefits. IV therapy with the proper vitamin cocktail can even replace prenatal vitamins if you receive an IV regularly.

Most vitamins given during pregnancy are the same vitamins you would receive with a standard prenatal. The main difference between taking your prenatal vitamins via IV instead of orally is that the IV vitamins are absorbed 100% by your body instead of 40-50%.

So what does IV Therapy entail?

IV therapy is a simple treatment in which a registered nurse inserts a needle into a vein in your arm and connects it to an IV bag. Once connected and infused, your nurse will mix vitamins into the bag. The process can take approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour, during which you can relax by watching TV, reading a book or magazine, napping, or browsing on your phone.
