I've heard mixed reviews about this from family & friends. Some have said its fine & others say it's not. Can anybody shed some light on this?

As far as I am aware (I'm a midwife) there is no problem with drinking coconut water during pregnancy. I can't imagine why it would cause any issues at all

I've never heard it's bad, I drank it a fair few timea

I drank it straight from the coconut many times on holiday in my pg and it was lovely? Have heard no reason for not drinking.

Thank you ladies!

why wouldn't it be? With DC1, I massively craved it and drank litres, he seems fine.

I had terrible cravings for coconut water during my second trimester - it's an expensive craving, can't think why it would be bad hmm

Did anyone who told you to avoid it give a reason? It's essentially fruit juice, can't imagine why they'd say so.

I craved it in the first trimester, was drinking a litre a day almost. Cost me more than bloody wine! grin

I basically lived on the stuff for the first 12 weeks - I had hyperemisis - I also craved the actual coconut too.. I'm 25 weeks pregnant with a healthy bubba boy x
