Importance of Vitamins in Pregnancy


Getting enough folic acid, a B vitamin, at least one month before getting pregnant and during early pregnancy lowers the risk of having a baby with serious birth defects of the brain and spine (neural tube defects).
For this reason, all women who can become pregnant should be sure to get 400 micrograms of folic acid every day.
