Vitamin D builds both a mother's and her baby's bones and calcium during pregnancy
Low levels of vitamin D found in mothers of premature infants-
Dr. Carol Wagner is a specialist in neonatal and perinatal medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina, doing research on human milk and vitamin D in pregnant women and their babies.
It's amazing what vitamin D does during pregnancy, helping to build a mother's and baby's bone structure. Then consider it also may help to strengthen their immune systems and prevent premature births. The risk of that not happening is greatest in women with dark skin, increased weight or those without much sun exposure. Dr. Carol Wagner recently joined us to review the importance of vitamin D in a baby's life for the webinar series: Nutrition in the First 1,000 Days, which extends from the time of conception until a toddler turns two. In this video for Nutrition4Kids, she answers parents' questions about vitamin D during pregnancy and what happens if a mom has a low level of the vitamin.
