    Take folic acid before you're pregnant

    Folic acid is B vitamin that every cell in your

    body needs for normal growth and

    development. If women of childbearing age

    take 400 micrograms of folic acid every day

    before and during early pregnancy, it may help

    reduce their baby’s risk for birth defects of

    the brain and spine called neural tube defects

    (NTDs) . The neural tube is the part of a

    developing baby that becomes the brain and

    spinal cord.


    Folic acid helps prevent NTDs only if taken

    before pregnancy and during the first few

    weeks of pregnancy, often before a woman

    may even know she’s pregnant.

    Foods that are good
    sources of folate are:
    Beans, like lentils, pinto beans and black beans
    Leafy green vegetables, like spinach and
    Romaine lettuce
    Asparagus
    Broccoli
    Peanuts (But don’t eat them if you have a
    peanut allergy )
    Citrus fruits, like oranges and grapefruit
    Orange juice (From concentrate is best)
