    Mothers who are planning conception should increase their intake of folic acid. Apart from being a component of blood cells, it prevents neural tube defects, cleft lip and cleft palate, congenital disorders that are likely to afflict the unborn. It should be taken optimally for one month before conception.

    Well I was really unaware of that, although I will say that I have seen folic acid be prescribed for a lot of different things so I am not really sure if it is specific to that. I am far from a doctor though.

    Folic acid is the first drug which is prescribed to any women who is preparing to get pregnant. It has multiple benefits most of which have been prescribed above. In addition to these, it also helps the uterus to prepare for adapting for the foetus.
