Prenatal care

A mother asked this question in a parenting forum i stumbled this morning:

Is it harmful to the fetus to not take a prenatal vitamin? I’m 9, almost 10 weeks pregnant and have been too sick to eat hardly anything for the past two weeks. My prenatal vitamins say they have to be taken with food, but since I haven’t been able to eat but a bite or two, I haven’t been taking them.

Prenatal care is important, pregnant woman should be paying attention to her health because it also connected to the health of the baby in the womb. For a mother’s health, and the health of her baby, she is advised to take so-called ‘prenatal vitamins’ during pregnancy. These are specially formulated multivitamins that make up for any nutritional deficiencies in the mother’s diet. While the supplements contain numerous vitamins and minerals, their folic acid, iron, and calcium content are especially important.
