Stock up on those Leafy Greens!

One of the best ways to take in essential prenatal nutrients is by eating dark green veggies like spinach, kale and Swiss chard.🥬🥗

Some of the key nutrients you get from these leafy greens are calcium, iron (especially important when you’re menstruating) and folate, which also protects against birth defects in the brain and spine that can develop in the first few weeks of pregnancy.

Most women don’t get enough folate from their diet though, so it is recommended to take a daily vitamin with folic acid (the synthetic version of folate). Your doctor can give you specifics on the amount you should strive for based on your own health needs.
