Personalized Nutrition for You and Your Baby

As an expecting mom, you need to make sure you are getting the right nutritional support during pregnancy. Some of the specific nutrients doctors often recommend are folic acid, vitamin D and the omega-3 fatty acid DHA.

  • While the former two have been discussed in doctors’ offices for decades, the latter nutrient — DHA — has only recently become part of the conversation. And for good reason.
  • Consuming the right amount of DHA during pregnancy may reduce the risk of preterm birth. Additionally, adequate DHA during gestation is associated with a reduced risk of postpartum depression. But how much DHA is enough, and how do you know if you’re hitting the mark?

The importance of Testing Your Nutrient Levels

Pregnancy puts a lot of demands on moms, including transferring important nutrients to your growing baby. Testing your nutritional status regularly will tell you if your diet is delivering enough of the right nutrients like omega-3s and vitamin D. Optimal levels of these nutrients are linked to:

Full term pregnancy
Baby’s growth and development
Postpartum health

Mother’s Milk DHA Testing

Omega-3 DHA is an important component of a baby’s developing brain and it is present in breast milk. DHA levels in breast milk, like blood, go up and down mainly based on how much you eat. We recommend Mother’s Milk DHA levels of at least 0.32% to meet the needs of the infant’s growing brain. Testing for breast milk DHA levels is as easy as dabbing a drop of breast milk on a piece of filter paper.

Use the DHA estimate from the Mother’s Milk DHA Calculator to make a plan to increase your DHA intake. For example, if the calculator recommends you take 250 mg DHA per day and you already take 200 mg DHA in your pre- or post-natal supplement, you’ll need to take at total of ~450 mg DHA per day to reach your Mother’s Milk DHA goal.

Why OmegaQuant created the Mother’s Milk DHA Test

Taking a Mother’s Milk test is a simple way for for you to know if you are delivering enough omega-3s through your breast milk. Many women do not have optimal levels of Omega-3s in their systems, but this can be corrected in less than two weeks with simple dietary changes or fish oil supplements.

Vitamin D Testing

Research shows that maintaining appropriate levels of Vitamin D can help support a healthy pregnancy and avoid complications, such as premature birth and low birth weight. One study report that women with Vitamin D levels at or above 40 ng/mL had a 62% lower risk of preterm birth than those with levels below 20 ng/mL. Are you getting enough?

Are you a Healthcare Provider?

Diet is a key piece to staying healthy before, during and after pregnancy. Help your patients stay on track with their nutritional status by testing their nutrients levels every 2-3 months during pregnancy, and every 2-4 weeks while breastfeeding.
