    No. It's even encouraged during labour

    It's high in sodium, so really you shouldn't drink it unless you are dehydrated. It's what my doctor said during my first pregnancy, drink it if you are dehydrated (from morning sickness) but avoid normally because of the sodium levels, which can mess with your electrolytes.
    It even says on the label it's not recommended for pregnant women.

    With all these drinks I would ask your GP or OB. I stopped taking berroca during my first pregnancy because I read too much vitamin C can cause miscarriages. Because I was already taking a prenatal vitamin I didn't want to add extra. Don't want to scare anyone, just think it'd be best to ask your personal doctor about all of this.

    Yeah, during labour when you need to keep hydrated and your hydration levels can drop quickly.

    I mean, you wouldn't drink those electrolyte drinks when you aren't dehydrated, and that's practically what powerade is, just commercialized.

    *shrugs* I'm only going by what I was told by my doctor during pregnancy, and what it says on the label.

    This what I found about berocca during pregnancy. It is safe to take but should not be taken if you're taking other pregnancy vitamins:

    Q Can I use Berocca during pregnancy?
    A Berocca can be used during pregnancy. There are no indications which exist that the nutrients contained in Berocca have any adverse effects on pregnancy or on the health of the foetus/newborn child at the recommended dose of one tablet per day. However, as with any other vitamin supplement taken during pregnancy or whilst breast feeding, if the women has any concerns it is recommend to talk to the doctor, midwife or pharmacist. Note that Berocca should not be taken in conjunction with other pregnancy vitamins.

    This is Beroccas website answer (the rest of their response was the same as above):
    'You should never take Berocca at the same time as other pregnancy vitamins.'

    There is actually more sodium in full cream milk than in a Powerade Isotonic. I drink powerade reguarly during my pregnancies due to severe HG but there is actually a lot less sodium in them than milk. So if your worried about that, might be worthwhile cutting back on milk also.

    Its what my doctor told me. Maybe I have it wrong, but he said its not recommended if your not dehydrated, especially for pregnant women. I drank it a lot and asked him, because of the label. That's what he told me, fine for if your dehydrated, stay away if I'm perfectly hydrated.
    I don't drink milk anyway.
