Vitamin D Important For Steady Growth of the Child

It has been recently revealed in a report that if pregnant women tend to have low levels of vitamin D in their bodies, it might tend to harm the language development skills in their children. The study has been conducted by a team of researchers from Australia.

The study was published in the journal Pediatrics, which is of the view that low levels of vitamin D in pregnant women might give rise to problems in them being able to develop good language skills in the time to come.

It might also result in other grave problems such as poor growth of the child, breathing difficulties as well as weak bones.

There is need for more and more women to be made aware of the fact that they need to be careful about the vitamin D content of their body. The study has been conducted by Andrew Whitehouse, from the University of Western Australia.

''What causes it has been a mystery for many years,'' "The developing baby is completely reliant on the mother for its vitamin D levels and what we have shown is that this might have an impact on the child's brain development”, said Professor Whitehouse.

Women need to be given enough vitamin D in their pregnancy. They might take supplements or go for sunbathing. Eating food rich in Vitamin D will also prove to be helpful.

The development and growth of the child might be totally jeopardized due t the lack of vitamin D in the mother, while she is expecting the baby. There is need for the woman to be very careful about her eating habits because that will tend to decide what sort of health status the child is born with.
