Pregnant women who were iron-deficient were more likely to have higher levels of perinatal depression, according to Canadian researchers from the University of Toronto and McMaster University.

A constant supply of vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids, and other micronutrients is very important for both the developing foetus and the expectant mother.

Given that pregnancy increases the demand for specific nutrients which may not be met through diet alone, and that nutritional requirements change constantly during the different stages of pregnancy, delivery, and while breastfeeding, it is very easy for a woman to become deficient in one or more micronutrients.
