WebMD refers to folic acid as a “pregnancy superhero!”

Folic Acid, also known as folate, is one of the B vitamins. It has an essential role in preventing neural tube (brain and spine) defects that can occur very early in fetal development. It’s hard to get all the folic acid you need (400 micrograms) each day, so taking a vitamin that has folic acid is best during the childbearing years.

Pregnant women and those planning to get pregnant should take prenatal vitamins every day.
