I am so sorry for you terrible loss!

You need to have about 600 mcg of folic acid per day in the weeks before you fall pregnant and then also in the first trimester. The most multivits do not have enough folic acid in, but you can check the package. Folic Acid itself is very very cheap, so maybe worth getting for use together wiht an everyday multivit.

Hi. I can suggest Centrum Materna vitamins as well as 1 folic acid tablet per day (little yellow pills). That''s what I was told to take by my fertility specialist
