Are you expecting a baby? Congratulations!

Pregnancy is a special time for future mothers. Eating healthily, exercising and taking supplements are important elements to take into account... Indeed, vitamins stimulate the body's vital functions and help fight diseases by maintaining a good immune system. Even if you eat properly, you are more prone to vitamin deficiencies. When you're pregnant, your body has to work harder to make sure your baby is healthy, which can deplete reserves over time...

Discover the vitamins to favor during this period:

Taking folic acid ( vitamin B9 ) can help prevent neural tube defects (NTDs) in your baby. These are congenital abnormalities of the brain and spinal cord that occur early in pregnancy. Neural tube defects include spina bifida and anencephaly.

However, most women do not know they are pregnant during the first few weeks of their pregnancy. So start taking it as soon as possible. Ideally, you should take folic acid for at least 3 months before conception and during the first trimester of your pregnancy.

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that plays an important role in the production of red blood cells and the maintenance of placental membranes.

Vitamin C deficiency increases the risk of premature birth. It is found in fruits: kiwis, strawberries, guavas, blackcurrants, as well as in citrus fruits, oranges and lemons. Supplementation is not necessary, except for former smokers.

Vitamin D or the sun vitamin is an essential vitamin for the smooth running of pregnancy and the development of the child. It acts in synergy with calcium to facilitate its assimilation and fixation on the bones. Vitamin D supplementation combined with calcium can help halve the risk of developing preeclampsia during pregnancy.

It is found in fatty fish (such as herring, sardines, salmon and mackerel), dairy products, eggs, dark chocolate, oils and margarines.

TO REMEMBER :

- Ask your usual doctor for advice before taking supplements

- Taking folic acid is strongly recommended for at least 3 months before conception and during the first 3 months of pregnancy

- Vitamin supplementation is recommended throughout pregnancy

- And of course, we try to eat varied and balanced meals in order to have all the nutrients for you and baby!
