Diet questions....what to eat?? Really need some advice! - Page 2
Beyond the first couple weeks when folic acid is needed for neural development, I really think prenatals are more for mom than baby. Those little vampires inside us will find all the nutrients they need, so stopping prenatals for the average woman in the western world probably won't make much of a difference in baby's development. Better to get the nutrients from food sources anyhow.
i tend to agree, unless mama has NO stores, which is possible and ends up being pre-ecclampsia. my midwife actually has not encouraged prenatals, she much prefers an intentional and careful diet, but prenatals ease my mind, if not my tummy. should just invest in more healthy foods i'll eat!
glad to know others don't do well with the vitamins.
