Should I be taking prenatal vitamins or supplements? And is there any medication I shouldn’t be taking?


If you’re not already taking it, as soon as you find out you’re pregnant, start taking folic acid as it’s important for your babies’ development. Avoid regular vitamin supplements as they can be too high in vitamin A and iron, but do look for a vitamin specially formulated for pregnant women. If you take medications, check with your healthcare provider whether it’s still safe to take them now you’re pregnant. And remember aromatherapy oils or other natural remedies can be unsuitable for use during pregnancy. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.
