Preserving Bone Density During Pregnancy

Maintaining your bone density becomes all the more important when a woman is expecting or nursing. Our chiropractic in Edmonds recommends that women take measures to keep up their bone density over the course of their pregnancies. It is during this period that your calcium is diverted towards the development of the fetus. After birth, the process of lactation puts additional demands on your calcium supply.

To fight this, seek out significant sources of both calcium and vitamin D. Pregnant and lactating women are advised to consume 1,500 milligrams of calcium per day. You should be able to find special prenatal pills offered for exactly this purpose. In this way you can help to assure the health of your back as well as the health of your growing baby.
