Affect of vitamin D supplementation during pregnancy

Postby caryn » Thu Apr 09, 2015 07:42 pm

"Incidence of preeclampsia, GDM, SGA, low birth weight, preterm birth, and cesarean section were not influenced by vitamin D supplementation."

This does not surprise me at all. Here's an article I wrote a while back explaining why this seems unlikely to help, with lots of links:
