If you’re pregnant or planning on conceiving anytime soon it’s a good idea to start taking a prenatal vitamin! Taking a prenatal vitamin helps cover any nutritional gaps in a mother’s diet.
Prenatal vitamins contain many vitamins and minerals. Their folic acid, iron, iodine, and calcium are especially important. One of the key roles vitamins play is they help aid neural tube development during pregnancy. Neural tube defects develop in the first 28 days after conception, before many women know they are pregnant.
