An unborn baby is completely dependent on their mother for nutrients and vitamins, which is why pregnant women are advised to follow a healthy diet.

Birth defects occur within the first 3-4 weeks of pregnancy. So, it's important to have folate in your system during those early stages of pregnancy when your baby's brain and spinal cord are developing. Inadequacy of certain trace elements like zinc, copper and magnesium have been involved in various reproductive issues events like infertility, pregnancy wastage, congenital anomalies, pregnancy induced hypertension, placental abruption, premature rupture of membranes, still births and low birth weight. One such essential vitamin is biotin. It is a water-soluble B-complex vitamin which plays a major role in the conversion of food to energy.
Pregnant women who receive inadequate nutrition experience greater maternal morbidity and have a higher risk of poor pregnancy outcomes like premature birth, miscarriage. Anemia, which is a low red blood cell count, can cause pregnant women to feel tired and lethargic through the entire pregnancies. Anemia can quickly turn into a critical emergency if there’s blood loss during delivery. Folate deficiency can cause several types of birth defects, particularly in the spine. Marginal micronutrient deficiency in the 1st trimester could lead to more severe deficiency later on due to stresses imposed by pregnancy, nutritional status in early pregnancy may be an important predictor of nutritional risk in late pregnancy.
