  1. 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:

      • Increases fertility

      • Decreases chance of birth defect(s)

      • 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. The neural tube completely closes during the 4th week of development, so it’s very important for you to start consuming prenatal vitamins before you’re trying to conceive.
