Vitamin D & Cesarean Risk

Awhile ago, I began a dialogue regarding the seemingly important role of Vitamin D in a pregnant woman's diet and the lasting effects that impact her life as well as that of her newborn, including during the breastfeeding experience.

This week, a very small study looked at Vitamin D deficiency and the rate of cesareans in women who were deficient. It found that women who are deficient of Vitamin D are four times more likely to have a cesarean than women with normal levels.

In the study, the researchers said they felt women needed more Vitamin D than is routinely recommended, from 400 IUs to 1400 IUs a day. There are no standard guidelines for how much Vitamin D supplementation folks should take, but, as I said in the Vitamin D post, many experts believe we are being told to take far, far less than we should be ingesting.

I encourage you all to read as much as you can about the role fish oil, calcium and Vitamin D play in unison to bring women to a healthy labor and birth - the uterus working beautifully, on-time and producing a healthy baby that nurses great and maintains its own health as well as the mother retaining hers.

I really believe we know so, so little about Vitamin D - and, of course, with my foot being broken, Calcium, Vitamin D and fish oil are a crucial part of my diet. It seems it should be for all of us!
