But a large study published Tuesday in The Journal of the American Medical Association suggests that the DHA supplements taken by pregnant women show no clear cognitive benefit to their babies. The study also found no evidence that DHA can reduce postpartum depression, except perhaps for women already at high risk for it.

Though, when it really comes down to it, the verdict is more-or-less "we still don't know what our bodies do with DHA or how much we need, but it doesn't appear that supplementing is harmful." Which is about par for nutrition science.
