Vitamin D and pregnancy

Hello all,

I’ve been struggling to get hold of my nurse and wondered if someone might be able to help.

I’m pregnant and unsure wether I should be continuing to take vitamin d at the same amount as advised by the consultant, can’t remeber exactly how much that it but about 5x RDA.

Any insights would be appreciated.

Thanks! Petal xxx

@petal87 , here’s a couple of articles on the subject :-

I would advise your GP of the issue. You need your levels checked (by a blood test) to see whether you are presently deficient, or not. Based on this information, the GP should be able to advise.
