Hi!

Anyone know anything about taking DHA while pregnant? (For the omega-3 fatty acids.) I'm going to ask my midwife next appointment... just wondering if anyone has any strong opinions about taking this supplement.

Thanks!

I think it's a good thing. I would recommend a vegan source (like the Omega-zen capsules sold at www.veganessentials.com) instead of a fish oil source, just so you can avoid the issues of contaminants (like mercury) in fish. But it definitely can't hurt and can only help your baby's developing brain.
