Prenatal and Postnatal Supplements
The earlier supplementation begins the better because women need adequate nutrient stores to meet the greater nutrient demands for a growing baby. Nutrient deficiencies are associated with pregnancy complications, low birth weight, and birth defects.
To maintain health and produce nutritious breast milk, nursing moms need to be sure to eat a well-balanced diet, stay adequately hydrated and get plenty of rest. But, many experts agree that even doing all these things might not be enough to ensure that moms and babies stay healthy. As a result, doctors recommend that nursing moms supplement their diets with a good supplemental multivitamin.
