Eating a healthy, balanced diet while you're pregnant protects you
and your growing baby. Many of you may already take a prenatal vitamin
for added insurance; however, choosing the right foods can also help you
consume the nutrients that pregnant women need. Below are four important
vitamines that pregnant women need, as well as the food sources you can
find the nutrients in.
NOTE: Results are for women 19 and older. Because of the amount of folate
and iron needed, a prenatal supplement is always suggested.
