Vitamin D3 1000 IU Vitamin D3 1000 IU


Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that promotes a stronger immune system, helps regulate insulin and blood sugar, is crucial to fetal bone mineralization, and may have a role in decreasing the risk of multiple sclerosis, diabetes, and autism.  Vitamin D levels cross into the placenta and appear in baby's blood at the same concentration as in its mother.  It is important to know your level prior to taking a supplement. 

Higher levels of Vitamin D can lower the risk of pregnancy–induced hypertension and can reduce the risk of asthma in a child. Studies show that the rate of cesarean section deliveries is found to be inversely related to vitamin D status.  

The Midwives of New jersey recommend routine screening of Vitamin D3 levels in pregnant women in their practice. When levels are below normal, the Midwives recommend supplementation with 5,000IU D3/day in the prevention of cesarean birth.

 “…controlling for race, age, education level, insurance status, and alcohol use, women with 25(OH)D less than 37.5 nmol/liter were almost 4 times as likely to have a cesarean than women with 25(OH)D 37.5 nmol/liter or greater”
