Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
The nutritional needs of women will increase when they are pregnant and increase according to the increase in gestational age. To meet nutritional needs during pregnancy, mothers can add consumption of food supplements, especially those containing folic acid, iron and calcium. Folic acid is needed especially in early pregnancy, iron can be started after complaints of nausea are reduced and calcium is needed in pregnancy entering the third trimester. The three nutrients are needed to prevent miscarriage, fetal death in the womb, premature birth and birth defects. So it does not hurt to take additional supplements. However, it still emphasizes the nutritional value of natural food sources.
Fulfilled or not the nutritional needs during pregnancy can be seen from the growth and development of the fetus and the physical condition of the mother. For this reason, control regularly with your obstetrician or midwife, at least once a month. In order to monitor the condition of your pregnancy.
