I have been reading some intriguing research around omega 3 & 6 during pregnancy. The evidence is there for taking it during pregnancy; more specifically in the third trimester and while breast feeding.
What I am interested in knowing is the level of benefit during the first and second trimester. Of course the manufacturers state ‘throughout’ because it is not harmful, but helps their bottom line if women take it throughout pregnancy. However, this stuff is expensive….and you must take the good stuff so it won’t get cheaper with other brands. So if the benefits are lower or minimal in the first or second trimester…then I would wait to start taking it. But I can’t find anything about the specific benefits by trimester.
Ladies, what so you think? Is it worthwhile taking throughout the pregnancy or starting at a specific point. I see the sister next week for my intralipid so will also ask her opinion.
