From the time I was pregnant with my first baby, I knew Calcium would be an important nutrient in my diet. I was aware of calcium deficiencies during pregnancy from a friend who had many issues with calcium absorption during her pregnancy. Her calcium deficiency was so bad, she developed cavities which her dentist attributed to this deficiency.
I just had my third baby, and while my whole world changes with the birth of each child, my supplements have remained consistent during pregnancy and lactation. I am mindful to take my prenatals, fish oils, probiotic, and a daily calcium supplement- all recommended by my OBGYN and our family pediatrician. Before you start any supplement, you should always consult with your doctor to make sure you are receiving the proper dosage, and ask if there are interactions with anything else you might be taking.
The reason calcium is so important during pregnancy is because you are growing a human! A human with teeth, bones, and muscles. Calcium is important for the proper development of these functions. While your baby might receive all the nutrients it needs to develop, you may be lacking or deficient because the baby will take it from you. Getting your recommended daily Calcium is easy, and actually enjoyable with Viactiv. Milk Chocolate and Caramel Flavors are a delicious way to have a little treat and get your serving of calcium.
