Planning first baby

Hi Doctors, We're married 7 months before now we planning for our first baby. My friends who already have baby suggested my wife to take Folvite (Folic acid tablets 5mg). Is this safe and tell me how it will help for pregnancy? Also, is this tablets only for women ? Or I also can take this tablet? Please help us by clarifying my doubts and also give some tips for safe pregnancy ? Thanks in advance

Hi, Folic Acid is a vitamin, meant to be taken by woman who wants to become pregnant. It is to prevent neural tube defects in baby. For safe pregnancy, I advise you to consult with your Gynaecologist and get a pre pregnancy check up done
