What are vitamin a rich foods that needed to be avoided during pregnancy? I know beta carotene format is the best
NONE! It is important to have adequate vitamin a in pregnancy- not enough can cause fetal growth retardation & blindness. The only hazard is more than 10, 000 iu of preformed a in the first weeks of pregnancy. It is virtually impossible to get that much from food- one would need to have 22 servings of milk, 40 eggs or 42 servings of salmon every day to get that much vitamin a!
Is it ok to use rose hip oil and vitamin E oil during pregnancy? I heard rose hip oil is high vitamin a. Is this beta carotene based?
Yes. No more than 10, 000 iu of preformed vitamin a should be taken during pregnancy but preformed vitamin a is only found in animal foods (meat, eggs, dairy). There are no vegetarian sources of actual vitamin a- any "vitamin a" said to be in those foods are from carotenes and those are very safe in pregnancy.

If she has a pre-existing disease that causes nutritional problems, then her ob-gyn and a nutritionist can investigate to see if changes in diet or supplements are needed. Read more...
