Do I really need to take a prenatal vitamin?

It is best to take a prenatal vitamin during your entire pregnancy. These vitamins, which are available at your local pharmacy, have ore folic acid and iron than standard multi-vitamins. These nutrients help support your baby’s grown and development. Prenatal vitamins are also high in calcium and vitamin D, which are important for your baby’s bone growth and strength.

Ask your EIHC Women’s Health provider if you need additional help choosing a prenatal vitamin. In general, look for a prenatal vitamin that contains:

  • Folic Acid
  • Iron
  • Calcium
  • Vitamin D
