Pregnant Women

  1. Focusing on Folate

    If you're a woman of childbearing age, one of the B vitamins -- folate -- is especially critical.

  2. Folic Acid for a Healthy Baby

    Getting enough folic acid can reduce the risk for neural tube defects (NTDs) and may also reduce the risk for other serious birth defects of the brain and spinal cord.

  3. Nutrition During Pregnancy

    Not only is eating nutritious food good for you and your baby, it also can ease some of the discomforts of pregnancy. A balanced diet can help minimize symptoms such as nausea and constipation.
