Omega 3’s (particularly DHA) are essential for the baby’s brain development and eyesight. They also improve mood which decreases the risk of depression during pregnancy and post-partum depression. Omega 3’s supports a healthy heart and reduce inflammation (which helps with fertility) so make sure to get enough, especially in the 3rd trimester and while breastfeeding. Best Sources: Wild salmon, wild sardines, wild herring, wild shrimp, grass-fed beef, flaxseeds, walnuts, chia seeds, fish oil. **Make sure to avoid moderate to high mercury species when consuming fish for omega-3’s.
