THE IMPORTANCE OF FOLIC ACID BEFORE AND DURING PREGNANCY
Folic acid is a form of vitamin B9 that can dissolve in water. Folic Acid is shown to prevent neural tubular defects, such as spina bifida and anencephaly which can occur 3-4 weeks after conception. Research also suggests that Folic Acid may help lower your baby’s risk of other birth defects such as cleft lip, cleft palate and certain types of heart defects. As well, Folic Acid may also reduce the risk of preeclampsia, a serious blood pressure disorder that affects many women during pregnancy. Folic Acid is extremely important for the mother and her developing baby. Considering the important role of Folic Acid in fetal growth and development, ensuring adequate intake should be a priority for all pregnant women.
