If you are an expectant mom, there are a lot of things to consider before taking any medicine or vitamins. Prenatal check-up is a must for pregnant women. Doctors monitor the development of both mother and child. Only doctors can tell you if you need any medication or vitamins to keep you and your unborn baby in top form. They will give you prescription of certain vitamins that you can purchase in drugstores. You can always visit the nearest private or public hospitals in your area to avail prenatal services and you will know what Iâ€™m talking about. Just a piece of advice, consult your OB-Gyne first before buying over the counter prenatal vitamins. The same care should be exercised in taking food or beverages that arenâ€™t fit for consumption by pregnant women. Just be wary of anything you take for your sake and your unborn childâ€™s health.
