Fish Oil During Pregnancy Improves Hand-Eye Coordination in Toddlers

Pregnant women may have another reason to take fish
oil supplements during pregnancy. A study by Australian researchers found that
toddlers of women who took the omega-3-rich supplements during pregnancy had
better hand-eye coordination
than toddlers whose mothers did
not.

Further, babies that had high levels
of omega-3 fatty acids in their umbilical cord
blood were also more likely to have good hand-eye coordination. This is just the
latest research to support fish oil during pregnancy, a recommendation that is
increasingly gaining
acceptance
, even in conventional medicine (plus,
fish oil supplements are growing in popularity as concerns over mercury in fish
have increased).


Omega-3
fats in fish oil have also found to be beneficial for:
• Depression risks during
pregnancy
• Allergy prevention in
newborns
• Fetal growth 
• Preventing premature
deliveries
