Babies of women who took olive oil during pregnancy usually get better standards of height, weight and general development.
Unborn children need to keep significant reserves of vitamin E for going abroad and olive oil is full of it
It is good for mothers taking olive oil in pregnancy to maintain blood pressure levels and stay strong and healthy with the river of antioxidants provided by olive oil.
Although not a direct use for children, it is recommended that mothers use an emulsion of olive oil and water to prevent the cracks that occur after childbirth.
