...but someone at work mentioned it. Is it safe to drink tap water during pregnancy?

In the uk yes. Not on holiday tho

Absolutely yes. Your tap water in the UK is actually subject to more stringent regulations and more testing than the bottled water you can buy in the UK.

If it's safe to drink when you're not pregnant, it is.

Are you in the UK? Were they really suggesting all pregnant women should live on bottled water? What utter rot.

Yup, in the UK. Googled it and it came up with a dailyfail link that I wasn't gonna read, so thought I'd ask sensible people on here!

What did your colleague actually suggest you do?

In the uk yes - unless specifically marked "not drinking water"
