Point Out Differences in Prenatal Vitamins to Pregnant Women

The plethora of prenatal vitamins can lead to confusion.

Advise women to start supplements 3 months before conception if possible...then continue through pregnancy and for 4 to 6 weeks postpartum or as long as they are breastfeeding.

Focus on key nutrients...and recommend a prenatal with at least 400 to 600 mcg of folic acid, 27 mg of elemental iron, and 150 to 250 mcg of iodine per day for most women who are pregnant or planning pregnancy.
