No multivitamins etc prescribed
Hi There

I am a 1st time Mommy and 24 weeks pregnant.My gyni has not prescribed any multivitamins,folic acid pills etc for me.
Could there be a specific reason as to why I am not taking vitamin pills etc?
My baby is healthy and the gyni is happy with her weight etc.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thank you

Folate should be taken though it is most useful up to 12 weeks. If you have a well balanced diet, other vitamins are not essential.
