Should routine screening for vitamin D deficiency be performed in pregnancy? Evidence-based answer: No. Low vitamin D levels in pregnancy are associated with worse outcomes than no vitamin deficiency; however, supplementation does not conclusively improve outcomes (SOR: B, meta-analyses of observational studies and RCTs). The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) recommends against screening for vitamin D deficiency in pregnancy (SOR: C, expert opinion)
