Brief Summary:
The study is randomized blinded trial of Vitamin D supplementation to pregnant women; the study participants will receive Vitamin D in supplement form. Pregnant women will be individually randomized to three groups receiving a dose of 400, 2000 and 4000 IU/ day till the time of delivery.A blood sample will also be collected from the participant at the time of recruitment /before the starting of the supplementation for the assessment of Calcium, Phosphorus, Alkaline Phosphatase and Vitamin D levels. The second blood sample for vitamin D level to assess vitamin D status will be done after completion of the supplementation phase at the time of delivery (till 48 hours of delivery). The samples will be sent to Aga Khan University laboratory

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Pregnancy Drug: Vitamin D supplement Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The investigators hypothesize that Pakistani mothers as darkly pigmented, will require substantially higher oral supplementation with vitamin D to replenish the micronutrient stores and aid to resolve associated maternal and neonatal morbidity due to Vitamin D deficiency. The investigators expect that if vitamin D is supplemented to pregnant women, their newborn infants would inevitably replenish the micronutrient stores and aid to resolve the maternal and neonatal morbidity due to Vitamin D deficiency.This is hospital based double blinded trial, study participants divided into three groups which will receive Vitamin D supplementation in 400, 2000 and 4000 International Units. The group which will receive 400 IUs will be treated as control group.
