Pregnant women need Vitamin D to maintain proper levels of calcium and phosphorus which is necessary for bone development and protective against significant health complications in pregnancy like miscarriage, preeclampsia, and rickets, a disorder which causes malformation of a baby’s developing bones. Experts agree that testing Vitamin D levels before and during pregnancy is the best way to avoid a deficiency that can lead to health problems for mothers and their children. Dr. Debby Hamilton joins the Pregnancy Summit to share her extensive knowledge to help parents understand the importance of this vitamin and how to ensure adequate Vitamin D levels during pregnancy.
Dr. Debby Hamilton is an Integrative Pediatrician with over 25 years of experience and best-selling author of the book, “Preventing Autism & ADHD: Controlling Risk Factors Before, During & After Pregnancy.” Dr. Hamilton has a M.D. from the University of Health Sciences in Chicago, and a Master of Science degree in Public Health from the University of Colorado. She is an advocate for preconception care and has a focus in infant nutrition.
Vitamin D is known as the sunshine vitamin and it is one of the only vitamins that our body cannot naturally produce and the only vitamin that comes from our environment. “People who have low vitamin D have more allergies, asthma and problems with blood sugar. Children born to a mom with low vitamin D during pregnancy have two times the risk for language difficulties and four times the risk of Autism”, warns Dr. Hamilton. Yet now more than ever before, people are spending less and less time outdoors and lack the sun exposure needed to get sufficient Vitamin D from the environment.
Dr. Hamilton advises pregnant moms to take a simple and low-cost blood test to check their Vitamin D levels before, during and after pregnancy. While some fortified foods do contain the vitamin, it is not in levels sufficient to reach the daily recommended minimum dose of 600 mg and most will need to supplement with a high-quality prenatal vitamin.
