Hello, Thank you for the question.
Folic acid is one of the vitamins needed by pregnant women to prevent defects in the fetal nervous system in the womb (neural tube defect), reduce the risk of preterm birth and babies born with low body weight, and helps the formation of red blood cells. Some foods that contain folic acid such as cabbage, spinach, beans, broccoli, green beans, peas, potatoes, asparagus, avocados, papaya, bananas, beef liver, poultry, seafood. The recommended dosage for pregnant women is usually 400 to 600 micrograms every day. Even if you have consumed a variety of foods containing folic acid, however, it is uncertain whether this intake is sufficient because it is usually difficult to reach a dose of 400 micrograms every day just from food intake only. Thus, indeed pregnant women or women who are planning a pregnancy are recommended to consume folic acid supplements, especially to avoid defects in infants. Folic acid should be consumed mainly from one month before pregnancy until the first 3 months of pregnancy. If you are still unsure about using folic acid, you can take advantage of the obstetrician's chat feature in the HealthReplies.com application, yes.
Hopefully this information helps you.
