Hi, I'm Molly Lee, and I'm founder and director of energizingnutritioncom, a holistic health and nutrition practice based in New York City

My pregnant clients and friends often ask me, ""Should I take a prenatal vitamin?"" The answer is yes Prenatal vitamins are specially formulated multivitamins, which include calcium, folic acid, and iron, in addition to all the other essential vitamins a mother needs Calcium is important for an expecting mother because it helps build bones Folic acid is really important because it helps prevent birth defects And iron helps both mother and baby carry oxygen in their body

In addition to these necessary supplements, it's extremely important for an expecting mother to make sure she's getting a balanced diet full of fresh fruits, vegetables, and high quality proteins, as you can see here
