A Norwegian study recently analyzed data involving over 33,000 pregnant women who consumed dairy products with probiotics. They found that regular consumption of milk-based probiotics could result in a 20% decreased risk of developing high blood pressure in pregnancy (ie. preeclampsia).

Plain organic yogurt is the best source of probiotics from food. Higher doses of probiotics in capsule or powder form may be prescribed by a qualified health practitioner. See your Naturopathic Doctor for additional natural health support during pregnancy.
