Hi.... If you're pregnant or might become pregnant, it's critically important to get enough folic acid, the synthetic form of vitamin B9, also known as folate. Folic acid helps prevent neural tube defects(NTDs) – serious birth defects of the spinal cord (such as spina bifida) and the brain (such as anencephaly)...... Consult your gynecologist they will do the needful.....
