Most women 19 and older — including those who are pregnant — don't often get the daily 1,000 mg of calcium that's recommended. Because your growing baby's calcium demands are high, you should increase your calcium consumption to prevent a loss of calcium from your own bones.
Calcium supplements are important because,
-It prevents from developing hypertension in pregnancy.
-Prevents preterm birth.
-Prevents baby's growth restriction
-Prevents you from developing osteoporosis.
Your doctor will prescribe prenatal vitamins for you, which may contain some extra calcium.
