INDIAN  Women Don't Get the Recommended Daily Amount of Calcium.

In fact, most get less than half. Surprised? Maybe it is our concern about calories that led so many of us to cut dairy products. Or perhaps some of us have just outgrown our taste for milk. Whatever the reason, the majority of women aren't getting enough calcium for their own bones, let alone a developing baby's. So most women are calcium-deficient at the time they conceive.

Your Daily Prenatal Vitamin/Mineral Supplement Probably Doesn't Give You Enough Calcium.

Most of the daily prenatal formulas only contain about 200 to 300 mg of calcium - about 1,000 mg less than you and your baby need every day. So check the label on your bottle, or talk to your doctor. You'll want to make sure that you are getting enough calcium every day through natural food sources and supplements.

Breastfeeding Demands Extra Calcium.

Breastfeeding mothers continue to require 1,200 mg of calcium a day after their babies are born. During pregnancy, the mother's body will try to store calcium to product breast milk. When the baby is nursing, however, is a time of high calcium demand, and to produce the most nutritious milk, you'll need a highly nutritious diet.

Learn What it Takes to Get the Calcium You Need When You're Pregnant and Nursing.

Low-fat or skim milk is the best source of calcium - and you won't have to worry about calories from these. Other good sources are cottage cheese and yogurt, greens such as collard, kale, and turnip, as well as salmon and sardines.

One glass of milk provides about 300 mg of calcium. To get the amount of calcium in one 8-oz. Glass of milk, you would need:
4 cups of cooked broccoli
3 cups of cooked kale
4 oz of salmon with bones

CASH Tablets are an Excellent Source of Calcium.

The calcium you'll get from CASH tablets is as well absorbed by your body as the calcium in milk. CASH are chewable, portable, economical, nonperishable - in short, very convenient. And CASH is the calcium supplement most often recommended by doctors. Each CASH tablet gives you the same amount of calcium that you would get in an 8-oz. glass of milk.

After the Baby, Keep Taking Calcium for Yourself.

Don't lose your daily calcium habit just because you're no longer pregnant of nursing. Remember, your normal daily requirement is 1,000 mg a day. Until about the time of your late 20s, you yourself are still building new bone. During that time, and especially after that, you need the calcium for maintaining that bone strength and preventing osteoporosis, the bone-thinning disease that strikes older women. Not to mention needing calcium for all the other vital roles it plays in keeping you healthy.

Your Unborn Child Will Draw the Calcium It Needs From Your Body.

Nature helps provide for the new baby's development by taking calcium from the mother's body, right from her bones, if necessary. But you can ensure that there is enough calcium to go around if you increase your intake, even before you are pregnant, and every day while you are.

The National Institute of Health recommends that adult, nonpregnant women should get 1,000 mg of calcium a day (90% of us aren't making that number, remember). Three glasses of milk will supply that much calcium; three CASH tablets will, too.
