If you’re thinking about getting pregnant, you may want to ask your doctor about Vitamin D.

Research out of Boston University found pregnant women who didn’t get enough Vitamin D had an increased risk of a C-section delivery, compared to women who were not Vitamin D deficient.

For two years, doctors looked at the relationship between C-sections and nutrition. They found mothers-to-be who had low levels of Vitamin D in their bodies, had four times the odds of having a C-section.

Researchers believe Vitamin D helps women strengthen their muscles, which can make natural child birth much easier.
