Supplements during pregnancy

What About Supplements?

The best way to get nutrients is by eating a varied and balanced diet. However, vitamin supplements can also be beneficial, specially if you are unable to meet the exceptionally high demands of certain nutrients, such as iron, from normal diet alone. Folic acid is the only supplement necessary from before pregnancy throughout the trimesters.

You should only take supplements on your doctor’s recommendations. Always remember that supplements do not replace a healthy diet, but rather, it ensures that you are receiving enough nutrients. In fact, supplements work best when you take it as part of a healthy diet.
