Die Sicherheit einer mütterlichen streng veganen Diät während der Schwangerschaft wird oft infrage gestellt, insbesondere in Anbetracht ihres Mangels an essenziellen Nährstoffen wie Eisen und Vitamin B12. Studienergebnisse hierzu sind widersprüchlich – nicht zuletzt aufgrund der Vielfalt an vegetarischen oder veganen Ernährungsformen und der geringen Zahl kontrollierter Studien.
