Prenatal multi-vitamins - 60 tablets

What are Prenatal vitamins? What are their benefits?

Prenatal multi-vitamins are specially formulated multivitamins that make up for any nutritional deficiencies in the mother's diet - essential for the health of both mother and child. It is the folic acid, iron, and calcium contained in the supplement that are especially important.

Why do pregnant women need folic acid, iron and calcium?

When a woman has enough folic acid in her body before and during pregnancy, it can prevent major birth defects, including:
  • Spina bifida (SPEYE-nuh BIF-ih-duh), which occurs when an unborn babyメs spinal column does not close to protect the spinal cord. As a result, the nerves that control leg movements and other functions do not work. Children with spina bifida often have lifelong disabilities. They may also need many surgeries.
  • Anencephaly (an-en-SEF-uh-lee), which is when most or all of the brain does not develop. Babies with this problem die before or shortly after birth.
The results of some studies suggest that folic acid might also help to prevent other types of birth defects.

Calcium during pregnancy can prevent a new mother from losing her own bone density, as the foetus uses the mineral for bone growth.

Iron helps both the mother and baby's blood carry oxygen.

While a daily vitamin supplement is no substitute for a healthy diet, most women need supplements to make sure they get adequate levels of these minerals.
