Women should be careful about their preparations to become a mother. If you want to reduce the risk of premature labor, include fish in your daily diet.
Researchers at Harvard University have claimed this after studying 376 women who gave birth to premature babies. They found that nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA are present in large amounts in fish.
The risk of premature labor decreases up to ten times when these elements are abundantly available in the body in the first six months of pregnancy. Chief researcher Dr. Jardar Olson has advised pregnant women to consume fish at least three times a week.
At the same time, for women who avoid meat, taking fish-oil supplements can prove beneficial. The results of the study have been published in a recent issue of the Journal of Medicine.
