18 weeks pregnant mother

Question: Hi... I m 17 weeks pregnant.. Is it necessary to take folic acid tablet daily??

2 Answers
Answer: Folic acid is a pregnancy superhero! Taking a prenatal vitamin with the recommended 400 micrograms (mcg) of folic acid before and during pregnancy can help prevent birth defects of your baby's brain and spinal cord. By 12 weeks, the baby's neural tube will have closed and so it is not necessary to take folic acid, but it is not harmful to take it all the way through your pregnancy if you are taking pregnancy multivitamin tablets that contain it.
Answer: So will it be affecting foetus if not taken for few weeks?
