There are several nutrients that are important during pregnancy vs. other times of life. These include nutrients like folic acid, choline and omega-3 DHA. DHA is important for many things such as the baby’s development. But more recent studies have shown a strong connection between DHA blood levels and woman’s risk of premature birth. Having a certain amount of DHA in the blood lowers the risk of early preterm (before 34 weeks) and preterm birth (before 37 weeks) by 42% and 11%, respectively.
