DHA is a crucial nutrient for pregnancy health, infant brain development, maternal mental health and reducing the risk of preterm birth.

DHA is easily obtained by consuming 2-3 servings per week of cold-water, fatty fish.  

Vegan, Vegetarian and Low-seafood diets are ineffective to provide mom and baby with enough DHA for optimal fetal and maternal health.  

One of the best things you can do for your pregnancy, birth and postpartum is to consume a whole foods diet; and supplement for places where your diet may not be sufficient.

When looking for a DHA supplement, make sure the company has been tested for heavy metal and PCB contaminants, that the supplement also contains EPA and look to see how much (if any) VItamin A is added to the supplment.
