Hello Sucie, Thank you for the question.
Vitamin C is one of the vitamins needed by pregnant women and the fetus they contain. Vitamin C can help maintain cell health, forming collagen in cartilage, muscle. skin, and blood vessels in the fetus. Besides that for pregnant women themselves, vitamin C plays a role in maintaining endurance and absorption of iron from vegetables. However, excessive consumption of vitamin C is also not good for pregnant women. In general, pregnant women aged 18 years and under require vitamin C as much as 80 milligrams per day and those aged 19 years and over require 85 mg of vitamin C per day. You may take any vitamin C supplements. However, before consuming it, you should still consult your obstetrician first. Your doctor will ask further about your diet and your medical and pregnancy history to find out whether you need supplemental vitamin C in the form of supplements or not and at what dosage you need. If you already consume foods with balanced nutrition including those containing vitamin C, then vitamin C supplements are usually not needed.
