Personalized Nutrition for You and Your Baby

As an expecting mom, you need to make sure you are getting the right nutritional support during pregnancy. Some of the specific nutrients doctors often recommend are folic acid, vitamin D and the omega-3 fatty acid DHA.

  • While the former two have been discussed in doctors’ offices for decades, the latter nutrient — DHA — has only recently become part of the conversation. And for good reason.
  • Consuming the right amount of DHA during pregnancy may reduce the risk of preterm birth. Additionally, adequate DHA during gestation is associated with a reduced risk of postpartum depression. But how much DHA is enough, and how do you know if you’re hitting the mark?

The importance of Testing Your Nutrient Levels

Pregnancy puts a lot of demands on moms, including transferring important nutrients to your growing baby. Testing your nutritional status regularly will tell you if your diet is delivering enough of the right nutrients like omega-3s and vitamin D. Optimal levels of these nutrients are linked to:

Full term pregnancy
Baby’s growth and development
Postpartum health

Studies that Highlight the Importance of DHA during Pregnancy

Prenatal DHA Testing

The recommended daily dose of DHA for expecting mothers is 200 milligrams. This can be achieved by taking a supplement and eating foods rich in omega-3s such as salmon, fresh tuna, herring, and other types of fish. However, this won’t necessarily guarantee your DHA blood level is in the desired range. The only way to make sure you’re getting enough is to test your DHA level.

Why 5% is the number to hit
A DHA blood level of 5% appears to be the minimum needed to reap the benefits. Yet unfortunately, a majority of pregnant mothers are below this threshold, consuming a daily average of roughly 60 milligrams out of the recommended 200. The good news is that testing your DHA levels is easier and more accessible than you may think—no doctor visit or prescription needed.

Vitamin D Testing

Research shows that maintaining appropriate levels of Vitamin D can help support a healthy pregnancy and avoid complications, such as premature birth and low birth weight. One study report that women with Vitamin D levels at or above 40 ng/mL had a 62% lower risk of preterm birth than those with levels below 20 ng/mL. Are you getting enough?

Are you a Healthcare Provider?

Diet is a key piece to staying healthy before, during and after pregnancy. Help your patients stay on track with their nutritional status by testing their nutrients levels every 2-3 months during pregnancy, and every 2-4 weeks while breastfeeding.
