Pregnancy Plus Omega3 with DHA
Created by leading fertility expert Dr. Amos Grunebaum.
A one-of-a-kind dietary supplement, Pregnancy Plus Omega 3 is formulated specifically for trying-to-conceive, pregnant, and nursing mothers to optimize fetal development and infant health. Deficient in most diets, Pregnancy Plus offers the Omega-3 fatty acids your baby needs for healthy development - and for a cognitive-learning head-start!
Doctors suggest that pregnant and nursing mothers take Omega 3 with DHA throughout pregnancy and while they are nursing.
Trying-to-conceive women may also use Pregnancy Plus Omega 3 to build up their own stores of Omega-3 fatty acids and increase their general reproductive wellness. Omega 3 and DHA are most beneficial to a growing baby in the fist weeks of development, often before a woman even knows she's pregnant.

Omega-3 fatty acids are essential building blocks for your baby's brain, eyes, and heart. Scientific research indicates that Omega-3 fatty acids play a key role in prenatal, pregnancy, and early-childhood health, and are particularly central to the healthy development of your baby.
Omega-3 fatty acids come a number of different forms, but DHA and EPA are the forms most relevant to fetal health.
Established studies show that Omega-3 fatty acids...
- Promote the neurological and intellectual development of your baby
- Promote the development of your baby's cardiac and respiratory systems
- Support the development of your baby's brain and eyes (visual organs and brain centers)
- Increase the cognitive/learning function of babies, with effects measurable to age four
- Enhance visual learning and memory in infants and young children
- Increase the attention span of your child (a benchmark of IQ for infants and young children)
- Support pregnancy health of the mother, possibly reducing chances of toxemia (or pre-eclampsia)
- May help prevent premature delivery and pre-term labor
Research shows that EPA is central to supporting the development of young cardiac and circulatory systems. DHA is important to the developing brain and eyes, accumulating in large quantities during fetal development and during the first years of your baby's life.
DHA is a major component of the nervous system and promotes neurological growth, particularly with regard to the eyes and to basic cognitive-intellectual ability. Research studies confirm that a baby born to a mother with high levels of Omega-3 fatty acids in her system will more likely have advanced cognitive faculties and an increased attention span. Studies also suggest that this cognitive "head-start" will have far-reaching, positive implications in your child's future development.
DHA benefits also include the support of enhanced visual ability. One study tested over seventy mothers and their babies from between 4 and 8 months of age. The study tested for visual acuity and learning ability by showing infants pictures and measuring reactions. Results indicated that babies born to mothers with elevated DHA levels had increase visual-learning abilities.
Benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids are not limited to fetal and infant development. For pregnant women and nursing mothers, higher levels of Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to decrease the risk of some pregnancy complications and reduce the odds of postpartum depression. Omega-3 fatty acids may also decrease the chances of premature delivery.
