•    vitamin D blood spot tests for your pregnancy
•    your and your newborn’s new questionnaire entries

* Information will remain strictly private to GrassrootsHealth and its designated research team.
 
*** The first 45 women to enroll in April 2017 can join at any time during pregnancy, and will be fully funded by donations made to GrassrootsHealth. 
 

We Can Do It Together!

Your participation in the testing and sharing your results and health status during your pregnancy and for your newborn will enable us to inform the public about the status of vitamin D in this population and track health outcomes associated with vitamin D sufficiency. Vitamin D deficiency and its negative health consequences do not need to exist. This project depends on a true ‘GrassrootsHealth’ movement.

Help Us Spread the Word

We are expecting to demonstrate the significance of this nutrient on prenatal and child health and, of course, in the prevention of many diseases for both you and your child. We very much appreciate your participation.
