Fish Oil in Pregnancy Helps Fetus Grow

Scientists have discovered that eating large amounts of fish during the later stages of pregnancy might increase fetus growth but doesn’t extend the duration of the pregnancy.
A study conducted involved 11,580 women who found the more fish they consumed at the 32-week mark in their pregnancy the lower the likelihood of restricted growth in the baby. One researcher stated these findings supported the data that increasing the intake of fish or omega-3 fatty acids while a woman was pregnant increased the fetal growth rate.

The women in the study were questioned on the amount of fish they ate and the levels of omega-3 fatty acids were then measured by the fish intake the pregnant women consumed.

Results from the study showed that women ate 33 grams of fish on average, which was equal to around one-third of a tiny can of tuna each day and to 0.15 grams of omega-3 fatty acids. Some experts have recommended fish as a rich source for omega-3 fatty acids, which are considered essential for cell function.

Some of the other sources of omega-three fatty acids include canola oil, flaxseed and flaxseed oil and nuts.
