Consuming of Folic Acid in Pregnancy

Consuming of Folic Acid in Pregnancy

It is important and beneficial to eat foods rich in folic acid, preferably 2-3 months before the planning of pregnancy.

The probability of a baby with a neural tube defect such as spina bifida in pregnant women who care about this issue is less than those who do not, or the probability is significantly reduced.

At the same time, in the case of malnutrition in terms of folic acid, structurally larger and less functional red blood cells are formed and anemia may occur.

Plenty of fruit, pasta, rice, cereal, bread, flour (whole grain flours or wholemeal) contain folic acid. Liver, kidney, fibrous green vegetables, peas, broad beans are rich in folic acid.


Since folic acid can be lost with cooking, it is beneficial to eat vegetables and fruits fresh or lightly cooked.

Healthy life begins in the womb…
