Oily fish is a unique natural source of vitamin D and marine n3 fatty acids. The purpose of this study was to investigate where pregnant women receive nutritional advice and whether they eat seafood during pregnancy. A self-selected expedient sample  of highly educated women (n = 43) answered a self-managed web-based questionnaire. Women reduced their intake of both lean (p <0.013) and oily (p <0.003) fish during pregnancy. This suggests that women are not fully aware of the beneficial effects of ingesting fish and shellfish during pregnancy.

Key words: Marine n-3 fatty acids, Pregnant woman, vitamin D, nutritional advice, omega-3 fatty acids, seafood.
