Vitamin D during pregnancy and breastfeeding


Getting the right nutrients and eating well when you’re pregnant or breastfeeding is important for your baby’s growth and development. Vitamin D helps you to develop strong and healthy bones and it does the same for your developing baby.

If you don’t get enough vitamin D when you’re pregnant, your baby’s bones can become soft. This means that they are more likely to break, and your baby is also more likely to develop a bone condition called rickets. Getting enough vitamin D when you’re pregnant helps your baby get enough vitamin D too, and also increases your chances of having an uncomplicated pregnancy.

Breastfeeding helps you to bond with your baby, but it also provides your baby with most food and nutrients that he or she needs to grow and develop, including most vitamins and minerals. The foods you eat are important, as the nutrients from these pass from you to your baby in your breast milk.
