Are you Vegan and Pregnant?
Pregnancy is a nutritionally demanding period in a Woman’s life. The demand for certain vitamins and minerals during Pregnancy is increased such as Folate, Iron, Calcium,
Vitamin D and Magnesium.
The greatest risk of deficiency in Vegan Pregnant Women is that of an Iron Deficiency.
Some Vegan Diets can be low in Iron, which may increase risk of Anemia. Thus, if you are Vegan it may be beneficial to take a Pregnancy Supplement that contains Iron.
