Required Nutrtions by Pregnents

Folate and folic acid — Prevent birth defects

Lack of folate in a pregnancy diet may also increase the risk of low birth weight and preterm delivery. The synthetic form of folate found in supplements and fortified foods is known as folic acid.

How much you need: 800 micrograms of folate or folic acid a day before conception and throughout pregnancy.

Calcium — Strengthen bones

You and your baby need calcium for strong bones and teeth. Calcium also helps your circulatory, muscular and nervous systems run normally.

How much you need: 1,000 milligrams a day. Pregnant teenagers need 1,300 milligrams a day.

Vitamin D — Promote bone strength

Vitamin D also helps build your baby's bones and teeth.
