In a study, researchers asked 50 pregnant women to take either a fish oil capsule for 5 days a week or placebo.

With the incidence of postpartum depression rising, pregnant mothers should be cautious about their health. They should take omega-3 while pregnant to ensure that after their delivery, postpartum depression will not attack them.
