Omega-3’s are important for pregnant women and babies, special for the DHA that play an important role in brain and eye development for a growing baby, both during pregnancy and in the first months of life. Additionally, a recent study found that women taking omega-3 supplements while pregnant had a reduced risk for early preterm birth (less than 34 weeks), preterm birth (between 34-37 weeks) and babies born with low birth weight (less than 5.5 pounds). Local and international guidelines recognize that it is an important nutrient during pregnancy and breastfeeding. European Food Safety Authority and other international agencies recommends that pregnant and breastfeeding women take 100-300mg DHA per day.
