Results: Mean serum level of 25(OH)D was 13.05 ng/ml(SD± 6.36) and overall prevalence of vitamin D deficiency estimated as 84. Mean serum level of was significantly associated with duration of sun exposure, use of sunscreens, type of Hejab and type of dwelling (P<0.0001). But, there was no correlation between mean level of vitamin D and maternal age (P=0.773), gestational age (P=0.174), parity (P=0.509), and occupation (P=0.786).
