All moms know that growing a baby is hard work. Mentally and physically it takes a lot energy, which is why we need to do everything possible to nutritionally support our body and ultimately our baby.
If nutritional deficiencies occur during pregnancy, generally the baby will get the nutrient first. The reality is, depletion becomes more of an issue if the mother does not consciously replenish her stores. If left unnoticed or unattended the deficiency can become even more problematic once the baby is born.
