How are prenatal vitamins different from multivitamins?


Prenatal supplements and women’s multivitamins may contain some of the same general vitamins and minerals, like vitamin C, B vitamins and zinc. However, prenatal vitamins are recommended specifically to women who are pregnant or planning for pregnancy as they contain the appropriate levels of folic acid and iron to support you and your pregnancy. They are also crucial in preventing severe brain and spine birth abnormalities in the foetus.
