Get on a Pre-Natal Vitamins with at least 400-600 micrograms of folate acid.
Consult with your medical doctor for specific needs and or conditions you may have.
Benefits of consuming pre-natal vitamins include:

Iron (also in prenatal vitamins) helps in supporting proper growth and development
Folic acid (also in prenatals) helps in preventing birth defects such as Spina bifida and other defects of the brain and spinal cord.
