Pregnant women are supposed to maintain a healthy lifestyle by eating right and taking prenatal vitamins. Now research is showing it is actually important for your child's breathing later in life.

Lauren McGrail is seven weeks pregnant, but she's spent months preparing her body.

“I try to get a lot of sleep, I get 8 hours a night and take my vitamins and try to eat a balanced diet,” she said.

A new study shows that pregnant women who got the least amount of vitamin E were five times more likely to have children who eventually developed asthma.

Researchers say vitamin E may be most important in early pregnancy since it plays an important roll in lung development.
