Vitamin D has many different actions in the body, and deficiency in vitamin D has been associated with many health consequences, both during pregnancy and when not pregnant. More specifically, getting enough vitamin D during pregnancy and achieving a vitamin D serum level of at least 40 ng/ml has been shown to decrease risk for preterm birth, low birth weight babies, gestational diabetes, preeclampsia, and developmental and health issues in the baby. Details can be found throughout the site, such as on our FAQs page (http://myhylion.com/poc/faqs/) and our Information and Downloads page (http://myhylion.com/poc/information-and-downloads/)
Our bottom line suggestion is to aim for a target vitamin D serum level of 40-60 ng/ml. If you are within that range, whether or not you are taking vitamin D supplements, then great! If not, consult with your care provider and the materials on this website to help you determine the amount of vitamin D supplementation needed to achieve that serum level.
