What to eat while Pregnant – Should pregnant women take a multivitamin during pregnancy?

Should pregnant women take a multivitamin during pregnancy?


According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, the answer is yes. Most doctors recommend that pregnant women or those trying to get pregnant take a multivitamin or prenatal vitamin every day. This ensures that they and your baby get enough important nutrients like folic acid.


Folic acid can help prevent serious birth defects of your baby’s brain and spine. These birth defects often happen before most women know they are pregnant. Even women who plan carefully to eat healthy every day are known sometimes to fail in gettingimportant nutrients.


Taking a daily multivitamin or prenatal vitamin will guarantee your partner’s daily dose of needed nutrients. But don’t  let her overdo it. Taking more than one multivitamin daily can be harmful.
