  • Pregnancy is a critical time for a women to consume more calcium. Even if no problems develop during pregnancy, an inadequate supply of calcium at this time can diminish bone strength and increase risk for osteoporosis. Calcium can be found in dark leafy greens, cheese, tofu, broccoli, almonds to mention a few.
