I went today to check out DHA and noticed that it says for nursing or pregnant women. Why do some take it prior?
i think its recommended for those TTC, promotes brain and nervous system development....i just went to a Fertility Specialist yesterday and he gave me more prenatals that contain DHA....i think it's pretty common now....they also recommended 1G (1000mg) of folic acid...the ones i'd been taking OTC were 800mg....
I took a DHA supp on top of my reg prenatal! I still take it too- I hear its great for your skin too, as well as to help prevent post-partum depression. (Or anything fish oil related) of course if your breastfeeding as well - keep taking everything- including your Iron & vit D
