Yes..Vitamin C is especially important to pregnant females and is actually required to live. Our studies show that a proper diet of fruits and vegetables supplies over 500mg. of Vit.C.--However, the average ''American'' diet has about 100mg.And a ''Happy Meal'' may have even less. The developing baby needs Vit.C to develop..Ask your doctor for guidelines...Keep us posted.. Dr.Sibley
