Planning baby
Hi there

My husband and I are planning to start our family expansion in about 4 months. SO excited!

Please advise when it is a good time to start with folic acid etc - I actually don't know what vits to take.

Currently I am on Vit B (Vitaforce), Cranberry capsule (UTI prevention) and Probiflora.

Is there something I must stop taking?

Thanks

You can continue with the vitamins but folate is the most important. you should start at least 3 months before falling pregnant.
