Vitabiotics Pregnacare Caps (30)
Recommended level of Folic Acid
The department of Health recommends women planning a baby should take a supplement containing 400mcg of folic acid from the start of trying to conceive until the 12th week of pregnancy. This is the exact amount of folic acid contained in Pregnacare, but folic acid is also important after the first twelve weeks. As well s helping to maintain normal healthy development of the neural tube and nervous system, folic acid is required for foetal growth and is vital for cell division from a single cell to a fully developed baby.
For all of pregnancy
Good nutrition intake is vital throughout pregnancy, not just the first 12 weeks. Iron, B Vitamins and folic acid are particularly important for blood formation later in pregnancy, when a mother must produce extra red blood cells for the babys new blood supply. Pregnacare can be started at any point during pregnancy.
Ideal if breast-feeding
Optimum nutrition is valuable during breast-feeding, to assist the production of nutritious breast milk and to help replace a mothers reserves of vitamins and minerals, which may be reduced. Zinc is important for milk production and vitamin K is important to help the baby maintain healthy levels of blood clotting. Antioxidant vitamins in breast milk, such as vitamin E, may also be important for the babys immune system.
