Do I really need a prenatal vitamin?
Updated: Sep 30, 2019
Let’s talk about prenatal vitamins! Why are they important? When should you stop taking them? Well, prenatal vitamins differ from regular vitamins for women because they have increased levels of certain vitamins, such as folate and iron, so they account for the fact that you are growing another human inside of you! In fact these vitamins are specially made to improve birth outcomes and prevent birth defects, such as neural tube defect. Some specialists say that you should take a prenatal in the few months after giving birth as well, and maybe more for those planning to breastfeed! You should even start taking it before you get pregnant if you know you are trying to get pregnant to optimize your baby’s health!
