Having high Iorn stores reduces the risk of ovulatory infertility and miscarriage, vitamin D increases fertility, and B6 helps reduce stress and improves metabolism in the mother. Omega 3's, B12, folate, zinc, calcium and magnesium all help reduce pre-term labour as well as pre-eclampsia. Remember that dose and quality are important and this can be discussed with your ND.
