Calcium is very important as it helps in the baby's bone and teeth growth. If a mother does have adequate calcium through food or through dietary supplements, the baby is likely to use her reserves and this may end up causing osteoporosis later in life for the mother. The daily requirement of calcium is around 1200 mg for a pregnant woman.
