In fact, pregnancy is certainly one of the most delicate moments in a woman’s life: during this period, women undergo significant changes, both from a physiological and psychological point of view. It is therefore essential that the mother-to-be keeps herself in good health, in order to progress well in that period, to allow for proper development of the unborn child.

A daily intake of 400 mcg of folic acid by women of childbearing age before pregnancy (at least one month) and during the three months following conception, increases the maternal folate status. A low maternal folate status is a risk factor for the development of foetal neural tube defects.
