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.

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.
