Recommended level of folic acid & vitamin D
The UK Department of Health recommends women planning a baby should take a supplement containing 400µg of folic acid from the start of trying to conceive until the 12th week of pregnancy. This is the exact amount of folic acid contained in Pregnacare. Supplemental folic acid intake increases maternal folate status†. Low maternal folate status is a risk factor in the development of neural tube defects in the developing foetus.Folic Acid is also beneficial beyond 12 weeks as it contributes to maternal tissue growth during pregnancy.
