    Folic acid must be taken for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, after 12 weeks the spine is complete so folic acid isnt needed, but some girls choose to carry on taking it throughout the whole of their pregnancy x

    folic acid is very good for women and something even when you are not pregnant you should have. I have been taking folic acid for years.

    I have taken prenatal vits throughout all 3 of my pregnancy and plan to with this one too. Plus I love how it makes my hair grow so fast.
