Pregnancy is a time filled with anticipation and preparation for the new member of the family. Paediatricians will often recommend that women follow a healthier diet, avoid certain meals and renounce their unhealthy vices, with smoking and alcohol consumption being the most dangerous habits that could interfere with the proper development and affect the health of the foetus. Many women worry during this time about the quality of the foods and liquids they consume.
If you were drinking filtered tap water before your pregnancy, you may continue to do so even after learning that you are pregnant. If you were drinking unfiltered tap water, you may need to test your water for contaminants to see if there are any contaminants that may be harmful or cause complications during your pregnancy.
