Omega-3 is an essential nutrient for health and development. Unfortunately, this nutrient is not synthesized by the human body. Therefore, it must be obtained from diet or supplementation.
Omega-3 should be included in a woman's supplement regimen before and during pregnancy. A healthy mom who prepares her body's nutrient stores as adequately as she can prior to conception. In addition to taking a prenatal vitamin, woman must consider including a prenatal omega-3 supplement. Both EPA and DHA are important, but DHA is particularly important throughout pregnancy and during the early stage of an infant's life.
FDA recommends that women who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or plan on becoming pregnant eat 8 to 12 ounces (2 to 3 servings) of fish low in mercury per week. However, the presence of heavy metals such as mercury, in certain types of fish creates a problem for women. Thus, supplementation with fish all has become a trusted source for a safe and pure way to obtain EPA and DHA.

Why DHA is important after delivery and lactating period? After delivery a mother's level of DHA can remain low as breastfeeding transmits her reserves of DHA to the breast milk for baby. The need for DHA remains critical for the new baby through two years of age as brain development continues through this time.
According to the researchers at the University of Kansas, infants born to mothers with higher blood levels of DHA at delivery had advanced levels of attention spans well into their second year of life.
What does DHA do for the baby during pregnancy? Taking omega-3 is important since DHA decreases throughout pregnancy in the mother as it is selectively transferred to the fetus. This redistribution of DHA is essential to ensure optimal fetal brain, eye, immune and nervous system development but can leave the mother depleted which may lead to deficiency problems such as post partum depression.
What else will DHA do for the baby? Getting enough DHA during pregnancy can improve behavior, attention, focus and learning in children. Other benefits that have been found by having adequate DHA during pregnancy is a reduced risk of allergies in infants and a positive influence on immune development.
