As well as maintaining healthy eating habits and keeping relatively active, taking a supplement or vitamin created especially with pregnancy in mind is an excellent routine to adopt from the moment you discover you are expecting – and, in the case of Folic Acid, even earlier than that. A 2016 study by the FSAI in fact showed that only 36% women of childbearing age in Ireland have adequate folate levels to provide optimal protection against spina bifida, therefore Folic Acid supplements are strongly advised.
