Care before, during and after pregnancy

Women’s nutritional needs change during pregnancy and breastfeeding. So making the right nutritional choices before one becomes pregnant will be important for the baby’s health. One of these choices should be to start taking a multivitamin supplement containing folic acid before becoming pregnant. Folic acid is a naturally occurring vitamin the body needs.

If a woman does not get enough folic acid, her baby has a higher risk of developing neural tube defect (NTD). One way to help prevent NTDs is to make sure one gets enough folic acid. While folic acid can be found in some of the foods we eat, most international guidelines recommend that women should take a folic acid supplement at least 12 weeks before conception, throughout pregnancy and four to six weeks after delivery or as long as breastfeeding continues.

Starting a supplement before one gets pregnant prepares the body for future pregnancy. During pregnancy, a woman’s need for a number of essential nutrients increases. For instance, extra iron is required to help maintain a healthy placenta. It is important to choose a multivitamin that is especially formulated for use during pregnancy. Nestlé Materna helps provide the vitamins and minerals one needs during all stages of pregnancy.

Is there a pregnancy multivitamin without iron in it?

I know this question sounds odd, but I already take a natural iron supplement so I am trying to find a multivitamin for pregnancy without iron in it. Might be impossible but please tell me if you know of one! Thanks!


Yes go to your local health store, GNC, or ask your OB doctor. They will know where to get it, the stores should have it, or your doc can always prescribe it. I have to take an iron free prenatal vitamin sometimes, due to constipation. Congrats, best


Buy the pregnancy multivitemin because that should have all the iron u need in it!

what would happen if a man took a pregnancy multivitamin?

After all, they are just multivitamins but with higher doses designed for pregnancy-so would it do any harm, say if you ran out of ordinary vitamins? What would be the effect of the folic acid addition to the tablet? Just interested!


Nothing much actually. I've taken them before while not pregnant, they are great for making your nails and hair grow faster.


He'd grow big wobbly boobies and his belly would get fat. Other than that he'd be in perfect health.*
