When should I start taking prenatal vitamins?

While there is no specific rule of thumb, it is a good idea for women to begin taking prenatal vitamins before pregnancy, throughout pregnancy and during the postnatal period for lactating and non-lactating mothers. This ensures that the would-be mom has adequate nutrition in order to keep her baby’s health on track during pregnancy and after delivery.

If you are planning to breastfeed your baby you may want to continue taking prenatal vitamin supplements until your baby is weaned from breastfeeding.

If I miss my dose of prenatal vitamin, should I take double dose next time?

Although missing one single dose should not harm your baby, do not take more than the suggested dose. It is best to establish a regular routine and take your prenatal vitamin at the same time every day. This way you’ll be less likely to forget.
