Essential Omega 3
DHA 350 EPA5
Getting proper nutrients is a concern for many moms-to-be. Scientific research is constantly expanding our knowledge of nutritional needs in pregnancy. Among the most recent development in this field is the importance of Omega-3 fatty acids in both the development of a healthy baby and in the health of the mother.
Omega-3s have been found to be essential for both neurological and early visual development of the baby, especially Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). DHA is an essential omega-3 fatty acid and a nutritional powerhouse. DHA is particularly present in high concentration in the brain, retina and nervous system. This essential fat-building block (DHA) is involved in fetal growth and development. Research has suggested that the risk of preterm birth can be reduced with DHA supplements. It is not only helpful for baby, but for mommies too. DHA has shown to improve depressive moods in the perinatal period (late pregnancy through early postpartum).
However, the standard western diet is severely deficient in these critical nutrients. Furthermore, omega-3 dietary deficiency is often reported in pregnant women as the fetus uses omega-3s for its nervous system development. Omega-3 deficiency also increases the mother’s risk of depression, which may explain why postpartum mood disorders can become worse and begin earlier with each subsequent pregnancy. Omega-3s are also used after birth to make breast milk. And with each subsequent pregnancy, mothers are further depleted with these essential nutrients.
Thus, omega-3s play a vital role in pre-, during- and post pregnancy. it is essential that the women aware of the importance of omega 3-s as “you are what you eat and so is your baby”.

Analysis has shown that women consuming more than 600mg of DHA daily during pregnancy can reduce their risk of early preterm birth. Improving DHA status is vital since maternal DHA levels are correlated with fetal DHA status and also represent enhanced DHA stores to support lactation and early infant growth and cognitive development.
HIGHER DOSE OF DHA LINKED WITH LOWER RISK OF EARLY PRETERM BIRTH
DOMInO trial conducted in Australia excluded pregnant woman with serious maternal illness and found a significant reduction in ePTB (early preterm birth, < 34 weeks gestation) with 600 mg/d DHA (n=301, 0.6% vs 4.8% of births)
