Five questions to answer when choosing your prenatal multivitamin

Answer the questions below to help start the discussion with your Healthcare Professional.

You must answer to this question!

Because many women are unaware that they are pregnant before the end of their first month of pregnancy, it's important to start taking an adequate dose of folic acid three months before the pregnancy. Sufficient folic acid intake in the first 28 days of pregnancy can significantly reduce the risk of neural tube malformation. Also make sure to start your pregnancy with an adequate intake of iron, iodine, calcium, and vitamins B12 and D. Taking a prenatal multivitamin that gives you the necessary nutritional reserves may even prove useful when you're trying to become pregnant.

If you answered yes to at least one of these statements, you may need a dose of folic acid higher than 1 mg during the first three months preceding conception, and for up to 10-12 weeks of pregnancy. Consult your physician.

If you answered yes, remember that you have the same nutritional needs as a pregnant woman who is not on any particular diet. The absence of certain foods in your diet (e.g. meat, fish, dairy products and eggs) may limit the nutritional intake you require for your health and for the development of the fetus. Adequate vitamin supplementation may prove useful when you're planning a pregnancy.

You must answer to this question!

Your vitamin A intake must not exceed a maximum of 3000 µg of retinol activity equivalents (RAE) or 10,000 international units (IU). Higher intake may be harmful for your baby's development.
