Taking Multi-Vitamins

FROM NBC: Taking multi-vitamins during pregnancy may reduce the risk of delivering a baby with a low birth weight.

Right now, the world health organization recommends pregnant women take an iron-folic acid supplement instead of a multi-vitamin. But a new Canadian study finds multi-vitamins reduce low birth weights by 17-percent -- which is more effective than iron-folic acid supplements.

Researchers say one-point-five million babies born with a low birth weight could be avoided each year, if mothers get and take these prenatal multi-vitamins.

Experts say women should talk with their doctors before changing or adding any vitamins during their pregnancy.

So my reaction to this is, "Don't most pregnant women take a muli-vitamin?" Even the over the counter vitamins for pregnant women are multi. They have iron, folic acid and a whole lot more in them. Did you take a multi-vitamin or just an iron-folic acid vitamin during pregnancy?
