Vitamin D prior to and after birth


50,000 IU Vitamin D every two weeks during most of pregnancy = 3,600 IU average daily

3,600 IU is not enough Vitamin D for breast feeding without supplementing

50,000 IU of vitamin D every week shortly before birth will stock up on vitamin D (7,100 IU average)
Must continue at that same rate until finished breast feeding
