Help Pregnant Women Choose a Prenatal Vitamin

The plethora of prenatal vitamins can lead to confusion.

Focus on key nutrients. Choose a prenatal with at least 400 to 800 mcg of folic acid, 27 mg of elemental iron, and 150 mcg of iodine per day for most women who are pregnant or planning pregnancy.

Give 4 mg per day of folic acid through the first trimester for women at high risk of having a baby with neural tube defects, including those using certain anticonvulsants (carbamazepine, etc).
