Can 7-month-old Pregnant Women Drink Ginger Water?
Age 7 months. Can pregnant women drink ginger juice? ?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Ginger consumption during pregnancy can be beneficial, but can also be dangerous. To find out, it needs to be clarified first, what kind of ginger juice do you mean? Besides ginger, are there other ingredients in it? Previously, have you ever experienced a negative impact after consuming ginger?
Ginger is useful in pregnant women, especially to reduce nausea and vomiting. These complaints are often experienced in women whose pregnancy is still young (trimester 1). However, this does not rule out nausea and vomiting experienced by pregnant women whose age is longer in the womb (trimester 3), which is due to the growing pressure of the uterus and increased risk of the mother experiencing GERD (gastroesophageal rflux disease).
However, excessive consumption of ginger, you should also not do while pregnant. Some studies say, excessive consumption of ginger during pregnancy risks causing you to experience early uterine contractions, so that it can lead to miscarriage (at the age of the womb less than 20 weeks) and also preterm labor (at the age of the womb more than 20 weeks).
Some sources say that the amount of ginger during pregnancy should not exceed 1500 mg per day. However, it can be a safe dose for each different person. What's more, it is possible in the ginger juice drink products that you consume can also be added to other compositions that are not necessarily safe for the fetus.
Therefore, for the good of you and the fetus in your womb, it is far better if you directly consult your intention to consume the ginger juice with your obstetrician or doctor, right?
I hope this helps.
