University of Western Australia researchers gave women fish oil supplements that had 2.2 grams docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and 1.1 grams eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) from 20 weeks of gestation until delivery. Compared to the group who receive olive oil, breast milk from women who received fish oil had proportionally higher DHA and EPA levels the first few weeks after delivery. Babies breastfed from mothers who had taken the fish oil supplements were found to have better hand and eye coordination.
