At gravidtid.dk, you will find a wide range of vitamins for pre-pregnancy and the best vitamins for pregnant women. Both before and during pregnancy, we recommend eating a healthy and varied diet and following the Danish Health Authority's dietary guidelines and their official recommendations for vitamins before and during pregnancy.
Dietary Supplements for Pre-Pregnancy
Before becoming pregnant, it is important to ensure that you are eating a healthy and balanced diet that meets the body's nutritional needs. Most of these needs are met through a varied diet that includes the necessary vitamins and minerals. However, there are certain dietary supplements for women that are already recommended to take before becoming pregnant.
The Danish Health Authority recommends that women consume 400 micrograms (µg) of folic acid from when they start considering pregnancy (preferably 3 months before pregnancy) and during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. A folic acid supplement can prevent congenital brain and spinal cord defects in the baby. The defects can range from minor cosmetic issues to severe disabilities or stillbirth. These can include spina bifida, which can cause serious disabilities, or underdeveloped brain.

Dietary Supplements for Fertility
At the shop, you will also find prenatal multivitamins that contain all the recommended dietary supplements for pregnant women and are recommended to take even when planning pregnancy.

Vitamin D promotes calcium absorption and strengthens bone development, making it an important dietary supplement for both the pregnant woman and the unborn child. The Danish Health Authority recommends a daily supplement of 10 micrograms of vitamin D throughout pregnancy.
