Most Pregnant Women Not Getting Recommended Levels of Vitamin D

Researchers in Scotland have warned that expecting mothers are not getting the recommended levels of vitamin D which could lead to vitamin D deficiency in both the mothers and the newborn babies.

Researchers at University of Aberdeen's Rowett Institute of Nutrition and Health said that more steps have to be taken to ensure that expecting mothers know the importance of maintaining vitamin D levels and should be educated about taking vitamin D supplements.

"We suggest that, in addition to guidance on supplement use, encouraging safe sun exposure and getting out into green spaces in summer may help to improve vitamin D status in pregnancy, even in the north of Scotland", lead researcher Professor Paul Haggarty said.
