Can a pregnant woman drink sprite and salt? Is Sprite and salt good for pregnant woman?
I have come to discover that some pregnant women mix fanta, coke or sprite with salt to relieve the symptoms of morning sickness especially vomiting and nausea. Yes, pregnant women 👭 mix sprite and salt for their morning sickness….but this practice is very dangerous and unhealthy… it poses great risk to both the woman and the unborn baby…..
There was suspicion nothing wrong if a pregnant woman drink coke, fanta, Pepsi, 7up, sprite, Miranda, or malt…. The problem here is mixing it with salt…. especially uncooked salt…drinking/mixing sprite and salt by pregnant women can cause miscarriage, hypertension in pregnancy, pre-eclampsia eclampsia, and kidney damage…
Is Sprite and salt good for pregnant woman?
No… Thesr are the possible side effects of drinking sprite and salt in pregnancy…
1. Pre-eclampsia (hypertension in pregnancy)
High blood pressure (hypertension) during pregnancy can prevent the placenta (the food supply for the baby in the womb) from receiving enough blood. The lowered amount of blood to the placenta can lead to a low birth weight. Other complications can occur from high blood pressure during pregnancy. These conditions do not happen to all women with high blood pressure. They can include:
*Seizures in the mother
*Acute kidney failure/kidney injury
*Blood clotting problems
*Placental abruption: The placenta pulls away from the wall of the uterus, causing distress to the baby and the bleeding in the mother
Premature (early) delivery of the baby
*A cesarean delivery.
Eclampsia is a severe complication of preeclampsia. It’s a rare but serious condition where high blood pressure results in seizures during pregnancy. Seizures are periods of disturbed brain activity that can cause episodes of staring, decreased alertness, and convulsions (violent shaking).
Drinking sprite and salt can cause miscarriage, premature birth and pregnancy loss…. Sprite and salt mixture has been shown to cause strong uterine contractions leading to abortions. Some ladies use it to flush out pregnancy…. Please stay away from drinking sprite and salt if you want to keep your pregnancy.
You can now see the harm salt and sprite does the a pregnant woman and her unborn baby.. …dont drink it at all…. even if you are not pregnant. For your morning sickness, see a doctor if the symptoms are too severe to tolerate… don’t resort to drinking sprite and salt. Thank you…
