Vitamins Minerals For Pregnancy. Vitamins and minerals help give your body the nutrients it needs to stay healthy and repair any damages. You can get most vitamins by eating a healthy diet that includes:

Whole-grain breads and pastas
Milk products
Lean red meat
Fish that is low in mercury

It may be hard for some people to get enough vitamins and minerals in their diet. They may need to take a supplement. A supplement usually comes in the form of tablets or capsules.

Examples of people who need a supplement are:

* Women who can get pregnant should take a daily multivitamin containing 400 micrograms of folic acid every day to help prevent birth defects. Even if a woman is using birth control, it’s a good idea to take a multivitamin, just in case she gets pregnant.
* Pregnant women often take a prenatal vitamin. It contains folic acid and important nutrients needed during pregnancy.
* People with certain health conditions may need extra vitamins and minerals. Some illnesses, such as anemia, arise because the body doesn’t have enough of a certain nutrient, like iron. People with these illnesses can get extra nutrients through their diet or supplements.
Important nutrients during pregnancy

During pregnancy, your health provider may give you a prescription for a prenatal vitamin so that you and your baby get important nutrients for health.

1. Folic acid is one of the nutrients included in most prenatal vitamins.

Folic acid helps prevent birth defects of the brain and spinal cord. It may also protect the pregnant woman against cancer and stroke.

Pregnant women should get 600 micrograms of folic acid every day from food and supplements.
Most prenatal vitamins contain 600–1,000 micrograms of folic acid.

2. Iron is another important nutrient for pregnant women. It also can be found in prenatal vitamins.

Iron helps the muscles in both mother and baby develop.
It helps prevent anemia, a condition in which a woman’s red blood cells are too small and too few. Red blood cells carry oxygen around your body and to your baby.
Iron can also lower the risk of preterm birth and low birthweight.

3. Calcium, also available in prenatal vitamins, helps keep bones and teeth strong for mom and baby.

Calcium helps the nervous, muscular and circulatory systems stay healthy.

When a pregnant woman doesn’t get enough calcium from her diet, the body takes the calcium from her bones to give it to her growing baby.

Having less calcium in the bones can cause serious health conditions later in life, such as osteoporosis. In osteoporosis, the bones thin, and the person is at increased risk of bone breaks.

4. Docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA, is an omega-3 fatty acid. It helps to support the development and function of the baby’s brain and eyes.

Women should get at least 200 milligrams of DHA every day.
It may be hard to find prenatal vitamins that have DHA in them. But some prenatal vitamins are packaged and sold with a separate bottle of DHA on the side.


Common verses hear kannn. That’s right, mom, the pkp season is 3 months sitting in the house. Children who are active 24 hours a day, fuhhh, I don’t want my mother to be green, yellow, orange, red.

When pregnant with both Raudhah & Raif

Entering the end of the 2nd trimester, the horror of leg cramps will start. Older people say “lizard knot” but it is actually a muscle spasm.
Especially at night.
At that time, I will scream a little because he is in so much pain. Confirm will surprise Saiful Islam. And nnt epul la that will help lurutkan muscle yg cramp tu bg reda.
But the pain doesn’t end there, guys .

The next day I woke up, I wanted to walk too. So there is still a remnant of the disease.
Horror muscle cramps ni.
So this kind of cramp we call him, True Cramps.
True cramps have many causes,
Among them is the reason
vigorous activity,
injury (muscle injury) …

And the most related to pregnancy is the cause
> Calcium or Magnesium deficiency in the blood.
Deficiency of these two minerals can directly increase the mobilization and stimulation of the muscles to spasm.
For pregnant mothers, it is very common to have low calcium and magnesium content. For many factors as well,

Probably a reason
– daily diet low in calcium/magnesium
– dehydration
– Lots of vomiting
– lack of calcium absorption due to lack of vitamin D.
– intake of diuretics: if any.
– and some other health conditions such as parathyroid problems.

And again, this mother needs to lower the supply of calcium and magnesium to the baby so that the baby’s growth process is good and perfect.
Because of that, among the vitamins/minerals that doctors always recommend for pregnant women to take are CALCIUM & MAGNESIUM.
So that the baby can get enough calcium and magnesium, the mother also has a supply.

So that you can avoid problems related to the lizard knot.
And also, don’t be surprised …
If we take enough of this calcium magnesium, it can help soften the excretion as well!
That is why it is recommended for those who have constipation.

In this case, pregnant mothers who eat calcium magnesium, continue to take until in abstinence. In order to avoid constipation after childbirth. That’s a horror problem too, right? ⁇
These are my 2 rescue minerals throughout my 2nd & 3rd trimester. To avoid muscle cramps. And my savior in abstinence is the reason for me to avoid constipation.
So mummies,

Know why you have to take your vitamins.
