During pregnancy a lot of calcium is drained into the baby , leaving the mother in a calcium deficient state.
Unfortunately most of the indian ladies, suffer from low calcium reserve, since their teenage. Thus pregnancy worsening the condition.
Even more, post pregnancy stress in the body rises, during child care.
Lactation further drains calcium from the body.
Bones are the calcium reservoirs of our body.
Thus calcium is drained from the bones for the mother leaving her with osteoporotic bones.
This leads to severe bone pain especially in the back.
Pregnant women should take calcium tablets and calcium rich foods throughout their pregnancy ,and after pregnancy to prevent post partum osteoporosis.
