Thread: When to Start Folate

  1. #1

    Default When to Start Folate

    My DH and I were going to start TTC next month but now want to start right now (I think he's sick of me going gaga over everyone else's babies!). Consequently, I haven't been taking folate tablets which everyone seems to be telling me I need to take at least a month prior to TTC.... how vital is that? I think my only source of folate at the moment is Vegemite if that even counts.

    Thanks Emma. But what if I hadn't been taking it for the one month prior? I don't want to put my baby at risk and know about potential risk for spina bifida etc but how likely is that to happen? It is all very very confusing. I will definatly be taking the supplements during pregnancy though!
