Zinc aids in cell growth and replication and is important all through pregnancy. About 12-15 mg daily is the recommended dosage during pregnancy. Excess amounts in early pregnancy can cause miscarriage. It is present in beef, lamb, pork, beans and nuts. It is best to consume zinc through a natural than as dietary supplements.
