During pregnancy, women need to consume up to 50% more vitamins and minerals to support their baby’s growth and development.
Meeting that increased nutrient demand is challenging to do through diet alone. When food insecurity or food shortages are common, it’s even harder for pregnant women to get enough of the essential vitamins and minerals they need to support a healthy pregnancy.
As a result, two out of three women of reproductive age worldwide have micronutrient deficiencies. In low-resource communities, pregnant women can also face a lack of access to education about nutrition during pregnancy and prenatal healthcare.
Give today and your donation will be matched by Nature’s Sunshine!
