In terms of vitamins and supplements, a good prenatal vitamin can be used as a good insurance policy and give you peace of mind. Look for one that contains between 600-800 milligrams of folic acid, which is important for the baby's nerve system development. Also, choline, which is a lessor known vitamin, is also important for the baby's brain development. If your supplement does not contain Omega 3 fatty acid in the form of DHA and EPA, you can supplement fish oil. DHA and EPA is important for the baby's brain and nervous system development. If you are suffering from morning sickness, you can take Vitamin B-6. However, if you do so, make sure that you have an abundance of other B vitamins and follow the recommended dosage.
