Take Supplements And Pregnancy Milk When You Are Pregnant?
Hello, doctor. I want to ask, I am currently 4 weeks pregnant, last Friday I went to the health center to check the womb, from the health center I was given several drugs, namely 1mg folic acid, 50 mg vitamin c, and 500 mg calcium lactate. What I want to ask is whether or not I can take the medicine and I add more vitamin Blackmores pregnancy and Anmum milk? If possible, what can the doctor suggest in his drinking rules?
Thank you for the question.
When pregnant young, mothers need more nutrition to maintain stamina, increase endurance, as well as to optimize the development of the fetus in the womb. This nutritional intake can actually be obtained by consuming a variety of balanced nutritious foods and drinks every day. It's just that, given that pregnant women often experience nausea and vomiting, and access to healthy food and drinks are often limited, most doctors will provide additional supplements to meet these nutritional needs.
In general, as long as it's consumed properly and as long as you don't have an allergy to the vitamins and milk you mentioned, it's not a real problem to offset the doctor's pregnancy supplements with these vitamins and milk. It's just that you should not consume them close together to minimize the risk of negative interactions. In addition, the consumption of vitamins and pregnant milk in the long term (more than 2 weeks) should also be avoided if you have not consulted directly with the doctor or obstetrician who examined you. Because, nutritional needs of each person can certainly be different, depending on age, body posture, current pregnancy conditions, history of previous pregnancy, and your general health condition. As with nutritional deficiencies, excess nutrition is not necessarily good for your health.
Hope this helps ...
