◯ Start taking pregnancy supplements
♀ The first weeks after conception are critical for your baby’s development including development of vital organs, yet most women don’t know they are pregnant until they are past this important stage.
It can take time to build the higher level of nutrients your body will need to support you and your growing baby, and it’s difficult to guarantee you’ll get sufficient quantities through diet alone.
Studies have shown that folic acid and multivitamins will help in the prevention of neural-tube defects and some congenital abnormalities. Taking a pregnancy multivitamin and mineral supplement, such as Elevit Pronatal, can help build up the essential nutrients required and help cover the needs of both mother and baby.
It’s important to start taking a pregnancy multivitamin and mineral supplement such as Elevit Pronatal, from at least 1 month before you try to fall pregnant.
And it’s not just the women who need preparation!
♂ Men can also take positive steps to support conception by adopting a healthier lifestyle, and being aware of sperm health in particular.
