While prenatal Additional nutrients 먹튀검증사이트

While prenatal vitamins can help you meet most

of your nutrient needs, there are a couple of

nutrients you may want more of. Talk with your

care provider about these:

Vitamin D. This vitamin is especially

important during the third trimester, when

calcium demands increase. Most prenatal

vitamins don’t contain optimal amounts of

vitamin D. In addition to your prenatal

vitamin, drink vitamin D-fortified milk or

look for other calcium-rich foods containing

vitamin D. If you don’t drink milk daily or

eat calcium-rich foods such as yogurt,

salmon or kale, it may be wise to take

calcium and vitamin D supplements.

Omega-3 fatty acids. Standard prenatal

vitamins don’t include omega-3 fatty acids.

The benefits of omega-3 fatty acids on fetal

development are uncertain, but there’s some

evidence they may promote fetal brain

development. If you’re unable to or choose

not to eat fish or other foods high in omega-3

fatty acids, talk to your care provider to

see if supplementation with omega-3 fatty

acids might be appropriate 먹튀.

Sexually transmitted infections Sexually

transmitted infections can increase the risk of

infertility, ectopic pregnancy - when the

fertilized egg implants itself outside the uterus,

such as in a fallopian tube - and other

pregnancy complications. If you’re at risk of a

sexually transmitted infection, your care

provider may recommend preconception

screening, followed by treatment if needed.

Family history Certain medical conditions or

birth defects run in families and ethnic

populations. If you or your partner has a family

history of a genetic disorder or may be at risk,

your care provider may refer you to a medical

geneticist or a genetic counselor for a

preconception assessment (see Chapter 20).

Previous pregnancies If this isn’t your first

pregnancy, your care provider may ask about

previous pregnancies. Be sure to mention any

complications you may have had, such as high

blood pressure, gestational diabetes, preterm

labor or birth defects. If you had a previous

pregnancy that involved a neural tube defect,

your care provider may recommend a higher

daily dose of folic acid than what’s found in most

prenatal vitamins.

If you have any concerns or fears about

another pregnancy, share them with your care

provider. He or she will help you identify the

best ways to boost your chances of a healthy

pregnancy.
