Frequently Asked Questions

What Is a Saline IV Drip?

Our bodies are composed of 60% of water, making hydration essential for the human body. When dehydrated, we may experience symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, nausea, and lightheadedness.

When suffering with morning sickness, a hangover, Covid-19 recovery, cold, flu, or athletic recovery, the risk of dehydration is much greater.

Drinking water is an excellent source of hydration, but more often than not, people do not consume enough fluids or hydrating foods per day. (For those looking to lose weight, water also helps boosts the metabolism to burn calories faster! Liquid IV for pregnancy, like saline drips, offer a quick solution for fluid replacement and symptom relief.

A saline drip IV is administered intravenously with nutrients and electrolytes delivered directly to the bloodstream. While you may drink water for a couple of hours to feel hydrated again, saline IV treatments take roughly 45 minutes and the effects are felt immediately.

Saline IVs consist of a combination of sterile water and sodium chloride, or salt. They work to restore fluid balance and hydrate tissues. Saline IVs can be offered on their own or combined with other nutrients and vitamins for additional benefits.

How Does IV Therapy Help With Morning Sickness?

In the first trimester, typically from around week 6 to around 18 weeks, mothers commonly experience morning sickness. While this is typically a normal symptom, some experience more severe cases than others.

During pregnancy, your body needs about 8 to 12 cups of water a day in order to support the baby’s development, nutrition, and well-being in the womb.

Nausea can cause expectant mothers to eat less which means your body needs more fluids. By not drinking enough water, you can become dehydrated which causes the nausea to worsen.

Staying hydrated during your pregnancy is essential and will mitigate the effects of morning sickness.

At Drip IV, we also offer Zofran via IM therapy to help combat nausea. Make sure to consult with your doctor before your appointment!

Are Saline IV Drips Safe During Pregnancy?

Saline IVs are commonly given to patients as an IV when they require hydration. IV bags filled with saline solution are one of the most common solutions used in hospitals, containing a simple concoction of fluids and sodium chloride.

Saline IV Therapy is a safe and more effective way to recover from dehydration quickly during pregnancy.

What Are the Benefits of Staying Hydrated During Pregnancy?

A few of the benefits of staying hydrated during your pregnancy with pregnancy IV drip are:

  • Mitigates morning sickness
  • Minimizes Nausea
  • Increases Energy
  • Keeps your body temperature cooler
  • Softens Skin
  • Decreases constipation
