Is Folic Acid Necessary during Pregnancy?
2 Replies
pregnancyguide - July 3

Food to avoid when pregnancy includes those which are contaminated with the bacteria named Listeria. The bacteria poison the bloodstream which carries nutrients and vitamins to the baby via placenta. This in turn develops the condition named as listeriosis. What type of foods needs to avoid during pregnancy? Raw meat, eggs, undercooked meat, fish high in mercury, unpasteurized milk and cheese. All these may contain the bacteria.

Folic acid is very necessary for pregnancy. My doctor told me to have folic acid during the first three months of pregnancy as it helps in developing the spinal cord of the baby. To get food rich in folic acid and other vitamins and minerals, it is important to include green leafy vegetables, peanuts, fortified cereals, avocados, breads and orange juice in your diet.

During early pregnancy, having enough folic acid everyday keeps the body and the baby healthy; reduces the risk of miscarriage. Daily 4 mg of folic acid is required for pregnant women and have to take food rich in folates like spinach, orange juice etc.
