Nutrition is very important for everyone. But when a woman is pregnant or breastfeeding, a woman's nutritional needs are greater than ever. That is why it is very important for a pregnant woman to take nutrition seriously.
The nutrition consumed by mothers will likely play a role in the future health of the fetus. The biological response that can be produced by poor nutrition may actually influence the genes of the fetus. So the maternal diet can modulate gene expression in the offspring.

IMPORTANCE OF IODINE
In healthy adults, iodine serves a number of functions within the body. First and foremost iodine supports healthy thyroid function, which is important for normal metabolism.For pregnant or lactating women, iodine is crucial because it not only supports a child’s healthy thyroid growth and function, it also plays a key role in healthy brain and central nervous system development. When taking iodine, it’s important to take adequate amounts of selenium, which also supports proper thyroid function.
IMPORTANCE OF IRON, CALCIUM, OMEGA-3, and VITAMIN D
Dr. Michelle Harden, Obstetrician and Gynecologist, shared optimal nutrition for enhanced fetal environment and overall health of the mother.
Calcium is important not only for bone development but also for smooth muscle function and circulation. During pregnancy a women’s blood volume increases significantly, so iron, as well as calcium, is a very important nutrient for a pregnant woman. Omega-3 essential fatty acids promote fetal brain development and can benefit a woman’s immune system. Vitamin D is important in pregnancy, because insufficiency is common.
- CALCIUM: Helps preserve a mother's bone density while supporting development of baby's bones, teeth, nerves, and muscles.
- OMEGA-3: Critical to normal brain development before birth. DHA is essential for healthy eye development and growth.
- VITAMIN D: Increases the absorption of calcium for maximum bone health benefits. Studies have found that Vitamin D supports healthy infant growth and birth weight.
