Pregnant and breastfeeding women have increased needs for most essential vitamins and minerals to support the health of their babies and themselves. Multivitamin and mineral supplements provide a balanced dose of the basic vitamins and minerals in amounts that pose little or no risk of overdosing on any one nutrient. This formula includes folic acid, iron, and zinc in greater amounts because these nutrients are most likely to be lacking in the diet. Folic acid is needed for the formation of new red blood cells; a lack of this important B vitamin can cause anemia, low-birth-weight babies, and neural tube birth defects, such as spina bifida. During pregnancy, iron is required to prevent anemia and for red blood cell expansion in both the mother and the fetus. Extra iron is needed, especially if iron stores are not optimal before pregnancy. The developing fetus also requires sufficient stores of this mineral, because soon after birth there is a significant decrease in body iron stores in the infant. Zinc is necessary for weight gain during pregnancy and to prevent malformations and low birth weight in the developing fetus. Extra calcium is included in this formula to support healthy growth of the fetal skeleton, and to help maintain the mother's own bone density and strength.
