What are the ingredients that mother's should look for in pregnancy vitamins?

Folic Acid - helps prevent neural tube defects that commonly affect the baby's brain and spinal cord. This can also be found in green leafy vegetables, citrus fruits, beans and nuts.
Iron - supports the blood that carries oxygen to the mother's cells and the developing baby.
Iodine - promotes healthy thyroid function while the mother is pregnant. Lack of iodine can halt the baby's physical and mental growth and can even result to miscarriage and stillbirth.
Calcium - is essential in the development of the baby's bones. Taking an adequate amount of calcium is important for the mother to support her bone density.

How long should I take pregnancy vitamins?

Folic acid is important before and during pregnancy. Folic acid should be taken every day while trying to get pregnant until you are 3 months pregnancy. After giving birth, it is recommended to continue taking prenatal vitamins especially if you are breastfeeding.
