Well, I do know that the ol' chain of command goes: Baby in utero, nursling, and then mama, as far as who gets the 'best' stuff the mama's body has to offer.
I've also heard that the ol' prenatal vitamin is more 'for mom' than baby, and offers the mom nutritional insurance--again, the idea being that baby will get first dibs on mama's resources.
(And I am not saying eat Chee-toes and drink Coke all day and magically your baby will be perfectly nourished and the mom is the only one who will 'suffer'--but y'know what I mean! :P )
