Information:

During pregnancy and for many months after, a growing baby relies solely on its mum for nutrition. So it is vital that a pregnant or breastfeeding mother looks after herself in order to give her baby the best possible start in life. DHA is what’s known as an essential fatty acid or an omega-3 fatty acid.

DHA is an important nutrient for health at any stage of life, but it’s particularly important during pregnancy as it supports the normal development of the baby’s brain, eyes and nervous system. The need for DHA significantly increases during the third trimester of pregnancy.

During this time DHA rapidly accumulates in the brain of the developing baby, facilitating rapid normal brain tissue growth. So it’s crucial that a pregnant mother gets enough DHA from her diet to meet the needs of both her growing baby, and her own health and wellbeing.

The importance of DHA continues after the baby is born. Breast milk is naturally rich in DHA, supporting the rapidly growing child’s brain and nervous system. Which means it’s also important that a breastfeeding mother gets enough DHA from her diet, so that she can keep supporting the developmental needs of her growing infant.

DHA is a nutrient that our body does not make in sufficient amounts, so we have to rely on a healthy diet to ensure we are getting enough. Eating a lot of fish is always the best option to get lots of omega-3, but it’s not always that simple, especially when you’re pregnant and your appetite can be a little unpredictable!

Taking a DHA supplement such as Australian NaturalCare’s DHA for Pregnancy & Breastfeeding at this important time of your life is a simple and reliable way to support the DHA needs of both yourself and your baby, whether you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.

Just two capsules a day will provide you with a rich natural (marine) source of DHA.
