Nutrition In The Womb

Try to get at least 400 micrograms of folic acid every day.

Women who take the recommended dose of folic acid, starting at least a month before conception, can reduce their baby's risk of brain and spinal birth defects by fifty to seventy-five percent.

Consuming enough folic acid is the first step you can take to assist the brain development of your baby.

You can get the recommended 400 micrograms of folic acid each day from food and/or supplements.
