Do I need to take a vitamin and minerals supplement during pregnancy?

Most women are advised to take a folate supplement during pregnancy to reduce the chance of neural tube defects. Otherwise, it is normally recommended that you try to obtain all your nutrients from eating a healthy and balanced diet. If this is not possible, your doctor or midwife can advise what other supplements may be suitable for you.
