These supplements are important to be taking whenever you’re trying to conceive — they’re to help maintain your health and a growing baby’s health, even before you know you’re pregnant.

Vitamin D. This vitamin helps to regulate calcium and phosphate, which is essential for growing a baby’s bones and teeth, and protecting your bones and teeth as well.

Folic Acid. Folic acid is an important part of prenatal care. You’ll need to be taking this as soon as you decide you want to try to conceive, and continue taking it beyond conception. It’s necessary in building and protecting baby’s nervous system, and preventing complications like spina bifida.

Prenatals. This may be a no-brainer, but prenatals are a necessary part of any conception and pregnancy plan.  They help stimulate baby’s growth and support good health for both of you.
