Expert nutrition for mother and baby
Pregnacare prenatal supplement is the most popular and trusted by mums
to safeguard the diet of those who are planning for pregnancy or are already
pregnant. A scientifically developed formulation of 19 important vitamins and
minerals, Pregnacare contains 400µg folic acid and 10µg vitamin D, as advised
by the UK Department of Health during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Pregnacare
has been carefully developed by experts so that all ingredient levels are
within safe levels for pregnancy and are moderate rather than excessive.
Recommended level of folic acid & vitamin D
The UK Department of Health recommends women planning a baby should take
a supplement containing 400µg of folic acid from the start of trying to
conceive until the 12th week of pregnancy. This is the exact amount of folic
acid contained in Pregnacare. Supplemental folic acid intake increases
maternal folate status†. Low maternal folate status is a risk factor in the
development of neural tube defects in the developing foetus.Folic Acid is also
beneficial beyond 12 weeks as it contributes to maternal tissue growth during

Many studies show the importance of ensuring the correct intake of
various vitamins and minerals throughout the entire pregnancy and as part of an
aftercare plan. Pregnacare provides a range of nutrients for overall support,
all at sensible, carefully balanced levels, including vitamins B2, B6 and B12
which contribute to normal red blood cell formation.
Pregnacare avoids high dose iron which is not recommended

formulated with an ideal, moderate level of iron. High levels of iron are not
recommended unless there is a particular requirement as identified by your
Pregnacare is recommended before conception to build up the stores of
nutrients such as iron in women who are trying for a baby. Good nutrition is
important to help prepare a woman's body for the additional demands placed on
it during pregnancy. Certain nutrients, like folic acid, vitamin B12 and zinc
are also of particular importance from the very first moment of conception.
Zinc contributes to normal fertility and reproduction whilst vitamin B12
contributes to normal red blood cell formation and also has a role in the
process of cell division.
For all of pregnancy
Good nutritional intake is vital throughout pregnancy, not just the first
12 weeks. Pregnacare provides essential nutrients throughout pregnancy
including folic acid which plays an important role during the full nine months
and contributes to normal blood formation. You can start taking Pregnacare at
any point during pregnancy.
