Saline solution

Normal saline is a mixture of water and sodium chloride. This helps pregnant women stay hydrated in order to form amniotic fluid, produce extra blood volume, build new tissue, carry nutrients, and help indigestion.


Vitamin B6

A form of vitamin B6 called pyridoxine is used. It regulates the brain chemicals serotonin and dopamine, which control emotions. However, in the case of morning sickness, pyridoxine helps reduce nausea and the risk of heart disease. It is found in many foods, so it’s something your body already has.

We can also add other vitamins to your drip to help you during your pregnancy for the health of you and your baby. The pregnancy drip is designed to assist with your morning sickness symptoms.
