Mom: Your Baby Needs Iodine - From You

Recently, "Maternal-Fetal and Neonatal Endocrinology" published the following abstract from its chapter on the fetal thyroid. 

"The fetal thyroid gland begins to be functional only at the 11th week of gestation and cannot supply all the thyroid hormones required during gestation. Hence the fetus depends on the maternal supply of iodine and thyroid hormone throughout gestation. Therefore, physiological interactions between the mother, the fetus, and the environment are crucial to the maintenance of a normal fetal thyroid axis and a normal development."
