Pregnancy: Amniotic fluid is almost water. How can Jiva Water Devices help?

Amniotic fluid, often referred to as the "lifeblood" of pregnancy, plays a pivotal role in nurturing and protecting the developing fetus within the womb. Let's get to know some basics of Amniotic Fluid and how Jiva Water Devices could be significant support

What is Amniotic Fluid?

Amniotic fluid is a clear, slightly yellowish fluid that surrounds the fetus in the amniotic sac within the uterus during pregnancy. It is an important component of the prenatal environment and plays a lot of roles in supporting fetal development and ensuring a healthy pregnancy.

What is Amniotic Fluid made of?

Amniotic fluid is primarily made of water, which makes up approximately 98% of its volume. The remaining 2% consists of various dissolved electrolytes, proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, hormones, enzymes, and fetal waste products.

Water and these components maintains the fluid balance, supports fetal growth and development, and protects the developing baby.

What does Amniotic Fluid do?

  • Protection: Amniotic fluid serves as a protective cushion for the fetus, providing a barrier against external trauma and injury. It acts as a shock absorber, absorbing impacts and preventing physical damage to the developing baby during pregnancy.
  • Temperature Regulation: The amniotic fluid helps regulate the temperature around the fetus, providing thermal insulation and maintaining a stable environment. This ensures that the fetus remains at an optimal temperature for growth and development, regardless of fluctuations in maternal body temperature.
  • Baby Movement: Amniotic fluid allows the fetus to move freely within the amniotic sac, facilitating fetal movements such as kicking, stretching, and turning. This movement is essential for the development of the fetal musculoskeletal system and helps exercise the developing muscles and joints.
  • Developmental Environment: Amniotic fluid provides a supportive environment for fetal growth and development, allowing for the exchange of nutrients, oxygen, and waste products between the mother and the fetus. It also helps support the development of the fetal respiratory, musculoskeletal, and gastrointestinal systems.

 When does Amniotic Fluid gets produced?

Amniotic fluid begins to form early in pregnancy, around the second week after fertilization.

Initially, the amniotic sac is filled with a fluid called amniotic fluid index (AFI), which is mostly water from maternal blood plasma.

As the pregnancy progresses, the fluid volume increases, primarily due to the production of urine by the fetus, which contributes to the amniotic fluid volume.

What’ll be quantity of Amniotic Fluid in the uterus?

The volume of amniotic fluid varies throughout pregnancy. In the early stages, there is a relatively small amount of amniotic fluid probably in less than 100 ml. As the pregnancy progresses, the volume increases steadily and  When it’s close to delivery,  the volume may begin to decrease slightly until childbirth.

Are there any challenges?

Amniotic fluid faces challenges in terms of its volume and quality: 

  • Low Levels of Amniotic Fluid: It’s called Oligohydramnios
  • High Levels of Amniotic Fluid: It’s called Polyhydramnios:
  • Poor quality of Amniotic fluid

What are the reasons for low levels, high levels or poor quality?

Reasons for Low Level Amniotic Fluid (Oligohydramnios):

  • Fetal abnormalities affecting kidney function or urine production.
  • Premature rupture of membranes (PROM), leading to amniotic fluid leakage.
  • Placental insufficiency, resulting in reduced blood flow to the fetus.
  • Maternal dehydration or inadequate fluid intake.
  • Post-term pregnancy, where amniotic fluid levels naturally decline.
  • Maternal health conditions such as hypertension or preeclampsia.

Reasons for High Level Amniotic Fluid (Polyhydramnios):

  • Fetal abnormalities affecting swallowing or absorption of amniotic fluid.
  • Maternal diabetes, causing excessive fetal urine production.
  • Twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) in twin pregnancies, leading to imbalanced fluid distribution.
  • Fetal anemia or blood disorders, resulting in increased blood volume and fluid production.
  • Maternal hydrops, causing fluid retention and increased amniotic fluid levels.
  • Idiopathic causes, where the reason for polyhydramnios is unknown. 

Reasons for Poor Quality Amniotic Fluid:

  • Maternal diet lacking essential nutrients or containing harmful substances.
  • Maternal health conditions such as infections or metabolic disorders.
  • Fetal health conditions such as infections or genetic abnormalities.
  • Placental dysfunction affecting nutrient exchange and waste removal.
  • Environmental factors such as exposure to toxins or pollutants.
  • Maternal behaviors such as substance abuse or smoking.

Regular pre-natal care helps monitor these challenges, ensuring optimal fluid levels for a healthy pregnancy.

What will be the consequences of Low, High or Poor Quality of Amniotic Fluid ?

  • Fetal growth restriction.
  • Umbilical cord compression and fetal distress.
  • Increased risk of preterm labor and delivery.
  • Meconium aspiration syndrome (MAS).
  • Developmental abnormalities and congenital anomalies.
  • Maternal complications during labor and delivery (such as placental abruption, postpartum hemorrhage).
  • Fetal malpresentation.
  • Respiratory distress for the newborn.
  • Increased likelihood of cesarean delivery.
  • Increased risk of intra-amniotic infections.
  • Impaired lung development for the newborn.
  • Long-term consequences for the baby, including neurological deficits.

Amniotic fluid is a crucial in the prenatal environment. It’s essential for supporting fetal development and ensuring a healthy pregnancy.

Its production, volume, and composition are closely regulated throughout pregnancy, with water playing a central role in maintaining optimal fluid levels and supporting fetal well-being.

Unfortunately the clean drinking water does not sufficiently hydrate cells. Why? The life-energy is mostly lost due to the water’s journey from its natural sources to our glass. Think about its travel through polluted soil, dark pipes, stagnant storages, heavy chemical treatments, purification processes. Though clean the water continues to hold the ill-memories in the form low vibration and frequency making it critically depleted in life-energy

Jiva Water Devices brings back the life energy in clean drinking water by just passing the water through the device. And when this water with Life-Energy is consumed regularly, the cells are hydrated thoroughly. And this Proper cellular level deep hydration with Jiva Water is essential in addressing challenges related to amniotic fluid levels and quality during pregnancy. Here's how: 

  • Regulation of Fluid Levels: Cellular Level Hydration with Jiva Water helps maintain osmotic balance, regulating amniotic fluid volume and minimizing the risk of abnormal levels.
  • Nutrient Transport: Water with Life Energy provides adequate hydration that facilitates the transport of nutrients to maternal and fetal cells, supporting fetal growth and addressing issues like fetal growth restriction.
  • Waste Removal: Jiva Water aids in efficient waste removal from cells, reducing the risk of metabolic waste accumulation that can compromise amniotic fluid quality.
  • Protection Against Infections: Drinking Jiva Water supports immune function, reducing the risk of infections that may affect amniotic fluid quality or lead to complications.
  • Fetal Health: Adequate hydration with Jiva Water promotes healthy cellular activity, reducing the risk of developmental abnormalities and supporting overall fetal well-being.
  • Maternal Health: Dehydration can worsen challenges related to amniotic fluid volume and quality. But, drinking Jiva Water consistently by listening to the thirst cues and listening to the body prevents maternal dehydration.

In summary, Clean water is not enough. Pregnancy is precious. Make it healthy and happy by supporting it with water that’s full of Life Energy. Proper hydration with Jiva Water Devices ensures good cellular health, supporting healthier pregnancy for both mother and baby.

Invest in your hand-held, portable Yami – Jiva Water Device that can go whereever you go to make every sip of water you drink is Full of Life.

This will also be best gift for your loved ones for a healthy long life filled with “full of life” moments
