Help prevent an estimated 2500 cases of pregnancy complications here in San Diego alone by participating in this take-action community project.


Natural Baby Pros is excited to announce our endorsement of the 'Protect Our Babies NOW' campaign, a movement started by GrassrootsHealth to spread action to solve the problem of vitamin D deficiency, the harm it is causing for pregnant women and babies, and what you can do to solve this major problem.

Over 30 years of research has linked vitamin D deficiency to multiple diseases in pregnancy, childhood, and throughout life.  Specifically, preeclampsia, preterm labor, pregnancy infections, and gestational diabetes could potentially be reduced by 50% simply by ensuring adequate, normal serum levels of 40-60 ng/ml of vitamin D during pregnancy... which, even in sunny areas such as San Diego, up to 82% of pregnant women simply do not have.  About 10% of pregnancies nationwide are affected by these diseases, and the risk of getting them is 2 to 5 times higher with lower prenatal vitamin D levels.   Recent research, including a six year randomized, controlled study on the safety of vitamin D during pregnancy, demonstrates the safety of vitamin D during pregnancy; in fact, throughout this study, supplementation of 4000 IU/day had no adverse effects at all.  

The bottom line is that a majority of today's population is not getting the amount of vitamin D they need to sustain normal, physiological blood levels of the vitamin (which, in truth, is actually a hormone).  Because of this, the body is not able to naturally and normally respond to growth and development, illness, and other diseases that vitamin D plays an essential role in, and therefore, disease results... bringing with them unnecessary treatments, pain, stress, and mortality that could have been avoided simply by correcting a deficiency of vitamin D.

"At no point in human nutrition is it more critical to ensure adequate nutrient intake than during the state of pregnancy," says as Dr. Carol Wagner, MD, lead researcher, pediatrician, and neonatal-perinatal medical expert. That is why GrassrootsHealth, a San Diego based non-profit organization, is starting a local vitamin D*action community campaign to 'Protect Our Children NOW.'  It is up to individuals, businesses, and organizations to take a stand on this important issue and to make a difference NOW.  Natural Baby Pros and several others have joined in to take this message to the public and to help it grow.  You can take action also to help keep pregnant mothers from suffering the anxiety and pain of an unhealthy pregnancy.

Natural Baby Pros will donate 15% of upgrade fees for any member using the promo code DACTION to the San Diego D*action Community Project and GrassrootsHealth.  This donation will help bring free vitamin D testing and health tracking, through the GrassrootsHealth D*action study, to local women and their children.

Carole Baggerly, the director of GrassrootsHealth, says it perfectly.  “When a solution to as much as 50% of the pain and anxiety of a troubled pregnancy is demonstrably safe and easy to obtain, it’s urgent to pull together all the resources we need to get action right now, without delay.”
