We know that folate (the natural form of folic acid) is essential in supporting the development of the brain, spine and neural tube in your unborn baby. We also know that having folate in its natural form is easier for your body to absorb. So, alongside a well-balanced diet that contains natural sources of folate, taking a supplement that contains folate is a great way to complement a healthy pre-conception and you and your baby’s nutritional needs during pregnancy.

Vitamin B12 is needed for making use of protein. It also helps the blood carry oxygen and is essential for making DNA. Vitamin B12 deficiency is linked to reduced fertility and issues with reproductive health.

Vitamin B6 is needed for healthy skin, nerves, and the formation of antibodies and blood cells. It also helps maintain hormonal balance between oestrogen and progesterone, which is critical for female fertility and a healthy reproductive system.

Thiamine (B1) has been linked to egg cell health. A deficiency in Vitamin B1 has been linked to higher rates of infertility and miscarriage. It also plays an important role in the health of the brain, nerves, spinal cord, and enzymes. Body stores are relatively small, so regular intakes are vital.

A lack of riboflavin (B2) in the body reduces energy levels. It is required to make skin, hair and nails. Research indicates that riboflavin, used in conjunction with iron, improves anaemia.

There is a requirement for niacin (B3) in pregnancy Niacin is involved in the normal growth of skin, the formation of healthy nerves, and maintaining a good digestive system.

Women who are planning to get pregnant or are pregnant have a higher requirement of iodine.

As midwives we always recommend that women trying to become pregnant and throughout their pregnancy aim for the best diet to attain her nutritional requirements, we also know that this is not always possible so taking a supplement can reassure you that you are getting all the nutrition you need.

If you did not take a supplement before you conceived, you should start as soon as you find out you are pregnant. The right supplement can increase your chances of becoming pregnant, support your nutritional needs and your immune system during pregnancy and help you to grow a healthier baby. Taking a supplement will also make you less likely to succumb to illness and can also help with fatigue.

FAQs

The UK Department of Health recommend supplementing folic acid to reduce risks of problems in the baby’s development in the early weeks of pregnancy. Folic acid can prevent birth defects known as neural tube defects including spina bifida.

Vitamin D regulates the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body, which are needed to keep bones, teeth, and muscles healthy. The Department of Health recommend that all people consider taking 10 micrograms of Vitamin D between September and March when we are not exposed to summer sunlight which makes vitamin D. Vitamin D is only found in a small number of foods, so it is difficult to get enough from your diet.
