(NewsUSA) - Being pregnant can be a joyful occasion. It also comes with its own unique set of challenges, such as weight gain, morning sickness, water retention and added stress to the joints.

All of these symptoms, however, can be alleviated naturally by drinking water, say experts.

"Getting comfortable during pregnancy is difficult at best and really an oxymoron, as most women will attest," says Robert Eakle, CEO of Alkame Water. "However, drinking water can be the answer to everything when you're pregnant."

The American Pregnancy Association agrees, noting that dehydration can lead to miscarriages and preterm labor, as well as constipation and fatigue.

Think about it: Water is vital in keeping the body hydrated. It acts as a conduit that aids in getting nutrients through the bloodstream to the baby, aids in digestion, flushes the system of unwanted toxins and generally keeps our bodily systems running smoothly.

Not all water is created equal, however. Tap water, for instance, can contain high levels of lead and other potentially unsafe ingredients that could do more harm than good to you and your developing infant. Switching to bottled water may not be the answer either, since most brands of bottled water can come from any source and are unregulated. So, what's a soon-to-be-mom to do?

The answer may be as simple as including alkaline water in your daily regime and rotation. By using oxygenated drinking water such as Alkame Water, you can enhance your energy levels as well as boost your immune system.

Unlike tap and bottled water, Alkame is produced in such a way that allows cells in the body to absorb water much faster and in turn, hydrate you (and your baby) more completely.

To ensure that you're drinking enough for both you and your baby, experts recommend 64 ounces a day, spread throughout the day, rather than larger glasses a few times per day. By spreading out your water intake, you can be assured that your body (and your baby) will always be hydrated.

Alkame Water, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Alkame Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: ALKM). For more information about Alkame Water and its benefits, visit www.alkamewater.com.
