Healthy eating is important for a healthy pregnancy.
Eating well helps your baby grow and develop, helps you feel great, gives you more energy and helps you gain the right amount of weight.

Pregnant women need to take a multivitamin containing folic acid and iron every day. Talk to your doctor about which multivitamin is right for you.
