It’s amazing what a little folic acid can help prevent. Thanks for this reminder!

I am very sorry about your LO–you truly have my sympathies.  My sister had a baby born with that.  She actually lived for a month.

I haven’t taken my pre-natals today so thank you for the reminder–I am usually religious about this.

I’m so sorry for what you are going through. You are very brave to be able to think about others during this time and remind them to take pre-natals.

FYI-they are also finding a link between taking prenatals prior to conception and lower Autsim rates.

From what I read, you should be taking prenatals a year prior to TTC. Basically, any woman in child baring age should be taking them just in case. Granted, I wasn’t perfect about taking them before, but something is better than nothing.

@shelbifox15: Thanks for reminding everyone. Hope you’re doing well.

Wow.  Thanks for your post. 

To add: my friend who just became a naturopathic doctor told me that ‘the pill’ robs your body of folic acid, along with many other nutrients.

@shelbifox15: I am so sorry for your awful news. You must be heartbroken.

But what you say is absolutely true – the minute I got engaged my mum told me to start taking folic acid, cos she, like others, had read that you should take it for a year before you even start trying.

I think the point that all women of childbearing age should take them whether they’re TTC or not is a really good one – accidents happen!
