I think its a myth, another health food hype.

in any case, maybe drinking in small moderation would be good.
just dont do anything in excess....

too much of any good thing can be bad!

An acquaintance of mine drank coconut water during her last trimester and she had a very smooth delivery.
Not sure if it is the effect or coincidence.

Coconut water is nutritious and there is no harm drinking, especially on last trimester. Lots of reviews online regarding the effects of coconut water on pregancy as well.

I've honestly never heard of such a claim, so I can't really judge whether it's a myth or truth. Have to do my own research

If you replace this drink for your fizzy drinks/Coke. It's a good thing .. But it still has sugar so don't drink too much also

This method has been passing down since great great grandma's era.
I also drank coconut water during last trimester and my babies was very clean when born.
But i have friends drank coconut water , but when they gave birth, their babies is covered with vernix.
Myth or not, it is good to drink coconut water as it is cooling, cos our temperature is higher when pregnant.

freshly brew bird nest helps alot, at least for my case...
i been eating it on daily basis since end of first trimester until now (week 26), as compared to other twin babies, mine seems to be in better weight and condition

i also eat cordyceps once a week, herbal chicken once a week. my body constitution really better by alot. went to baby seminar most of the mummies in long sweater or jacket. i wear tube dress and my arm pits are sweating  :-X

coconut water is more for induce labour. so most of people start to drink it when is near to week 40. baby stay too long in the womb also not good.

coconut water is mainly fats and sugar.

so might want to think about the post-pregnancy pounds.

Not sure about pregnancy but coconut water is very good for hangovers.  And I heard that they used coconut water for emergency IVs during WW2!
