Why you need DHA during pregnancy and breast-feeding
Since many women do not get the DHA they need from diet alone, a prescription prenatal vitamin with DHA can be just what a mother and her baby need for a healthy start. Research shows that DHA benefits baby’s development, as well as mother’s health and well-being.
DHA—enhancing baby’s and mom’s health
Through the mother's breast milk, or in the developing fetus,
maternal dietary DHA may help provide nutritional support for:
- Cognitive development
- Development of visual acuity
- Fetal growth and development
- Replenishes DHA depleted during pregnancy and lactation
- Provides critical nutrients essential to pregnancy
- May support maintenance of healthy skin, hair, and nails
