Protect Our Children NOW !
Register to have your vitamin D levels tracked throughout your pregnancy, and be an important part of this project to solve the vitamin D deficiency epidemic affecting pregnant women and babies.
When you join, you will also be participating in the world’s largest vitamin D project to solve the deficiency, D*action.
Participation is Self-Sponsored
This is a self-sponsored project. With a valid registration, your data can be used to focus on prenatal health outcomes with vitamin D. There will be a $65 charge for each vitamin D test during participation in this project which includes free vitamin D supplements, courtesy of BioTech Pharmacal:
• vitamin D blood spot tests for your pregnancy (2-3 tests per pregnancy)
• your and your newborn’s new questionnaire entries
• reporting of results to you
• free vitamin D from Bio-Tech Pharmacal
Registration for this project is only open for women who
1. are 18 years or older
2. are newly pregnant (12-17 weeks gestation)
3. currently reside in the United States
4. agree to authorize the release of their medical/hospital records*
5. agree to the project guidelines
You may be expected to have your vitamin D serum level tested at specific times during your pregnancy, and will receive a follow up email each time testing is due reminding you it’s time for your next test and health survey:
• at 12-17 weeks
• at 22-28 weeks
• at 32 weeks to birth
Completion of a new health status questionnaire is to accompany each vitamin D test, as well as a final questionnaire after birth.
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.
