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. Folate contributes to maternal tissue growth during pregnancy.
The Department of Health’s Chief Medical Officer recommends all pregnant and breastfeeding women should take a daily supplement containing 10μg of vitamin D.
