During pregnancy, your iron requirement increases. Not many woman have sufficient iron stores to meet pregnancy demands. Some doctors also prescribe calcium supplementation. It helps build strong bones and teeth for the baby.

You don't need to take 10 different vitamins a day. There are prenatal vitamins that contain all the daily amounts of minerals and vitamins recommended for you during your pregnancy. A prenatal vitamin is different from any other vitamins because of its iron and folic-acid content. They are probably the most important supplement for your pregnancy.
