Extra Vitamins? Lock Rss

I am pregant with twins, due early October. I was wondering if I should be taking any extra vitamins/ a multi vitamin?

I was taking the folic acid and iron tablets for the first 3 months, but have stopped and am not taking anything at the moment.

I had blood test and my iron levels are fine. Is there a need for taking extra vitamins, or should I be getting them from the food I eat?

Hi,
Thank you for your enquiry. If all your blood results are showing no signs of anything missing then you can get everything you need from your diet. You need to ensure that you are having three serves of calcium per day as this does not show on routine blood tests.
Best wishes,
Alex.
