New Prenatal Vitamins With Iron Can Help Pregnant Women Cope With The Summer Heat
Overheating and heavy sweating can lead to complications in the pregnancy. Thrive prenatal vitamins with iron share doctor advice to help pregnant women cope with the hot and humid temperature of summer.
During pregnancy, the body's normal body temperature rises to a higher degree due to the extra blood flow, and added heat from outside temperature can cause symptoms of heat intolerance. Adelaide Nardone, MD, an ob-gyn in Providence, Rhode Island, and medical advisor to the Vagisil Women's Health Center, advises expectant moms to pay attention to the warning signs of feeling overheated and heavy sweating which can lead to complications in the pregnancy.
Dr. Nardone recommends that pregnant women stay indoors when heat temperatures soar into the 90s. "A good way to keep body temperature down is to apply a cool, damp washcloth to the back of the neck, forehead, or the top of the head," Dr. Nardone says.
Dr. Nardone also says that heavy sweating can lead to dehydration and advises pregnant moms to drink plenty of fluids throughout the day. This should include a mix of fresh water, fruit juices like coconut water and lemonade, and even sports drinks to replace lost salt and electrolytes that are eliminated from the body through excessive sweating.
Dr. Sara DuMond, a mom and pediatrician in South Carolina, recommends eating light during the summer to stay cool and healthy. Try cold fruit salads or raw and crisp vegetable salads, and even cold soups for whole meal options. Many summer fruits and veggies are high in vitamins and minerals and also contain high water content that can help cool down the body and keep it hydrated throughout the day.
"And make sure to take prenatal vitamins with iron to make up for any vitamins and minerals that are lacking in the diet," Dr. DuMond added. Iron is one of the most important nutrients the body needs during pregnancy, playing a vital role in delivering oxygen to the baby and preventing anemia in the mother.
