Why Use Supplements in Pregnancy?

iStockPREGXSmallWhy Use Supplements in Pregnancy? This is a very important question to make sure the mother and baby are healthy.  Most recommended prenatal vitamins do not have “enough” of many nutrients AND often do not even get absorbed, or become bio-avaialble to the pregnant mother or fetus. Dr. Ladd McNamara has a wonderful webinar that I highly recommend for you to really understand this topic. It is important to take a pharmaceutical-grade, safe and effective brand of nutritional supplements in order to optimize health of the mother and baby during pregnancy.

Contact me at email@drkarenwolfe.org for a complete protocol for optimal nutritional supplementation in pregnancy. Here are some issues to consider

1. Women who have low DHA (an essential fatty acid) have increased risk of postpartum depression.

2. During pregnancy, a woman’s blood volume increases by 50% and anaemia can occur from low iron.

3. Low iodine levels can increase risk of miscarriage.

4. Inadequate Vitamin D levels during late pregnancy can decrease bone mineral content  at age 9 years.
