Hi there,

Im 15 weeks pregnant but my gynae has not prescibed a multivitamin for me as yet. He just said I need to take my folic acid daily. My next check up is at 17 weeks.

Please advise me,

Thanking you

If you have a healthy diet the multivitamin isn't absolutely necessary. The folate is the important thing.
