Myth 1: Babies leech calcium from their Mum’s teeth.

The Verdict: FALSE

This is based on the old wives’ tale that during pregnancy a women loses calcium in her teeth to the developing baby.

Calcium is not taken from the teeth during Pregnancy. If a mother’s intake of calcium is too low, she will lose calcium from her bones.
(ADA Victoria – July 2019 Issue)
