Optimal dosing of sunshine vitamin (Vitamin D) in pregnancy

Vitamin D is extremely important nutrient during pregnancy.
It can even decrease the rate of C-sections!
Here is an article on optimal dosages and how it can help both mom and new baby:
The researchers conclude …
that vitamin D supplementation of 4000 IU/d for pregnant women is safe and most effective in achieving sufficiency in all women and their neonates regardless of race”…
