When you are pregnant, you may feel overwhelmed and confused with the territory. But it doesn't have to be that confusing when it comes to vitamins and supplements.

Why Take Supplements During Pregnancy?
Getting the right nutrients is important at every stage of life, but especially during pregnancy, as you need to feed both yourself and your growing baby.

Pregnancy increases the need for nutrients
The macronutrient requirement increases significantly during pregnancy. Macronutrients include carbohydrates, proteins and fats.

For example, protein intake should be increased from the recommended 0.36 grams per pound (0.8 grams per kg) of body weight for non-pregnant women to 0.5 grams per pound (1.1 grams per kg) of body weight for pregnant women.

You want to include protein in every meal and snack to meet your needs.

The need for micronutrients, including vitamins, minerals and trace elements, increases even more than the need for macronutrients.

While some people are able to meet this growing demand through a well-planned nutrient-dense eating plan, it can be challenging for others.

You may need to take vitamin and mineral supplements for a variety of reasons, including:

Nutrient deficiencies: Some people may need a supplement after a blood test shows a deficiency in a vitamin or mineral. Correcting deficiencies is critical, as deficiency in nutrients such as folic acid has been linked to birth defects.
Hyperemesis gravidarum: This pregnancy complication is characterized by severe nausea and vomiting. It can lead to weight loss and nutrient deficiencies.
Diet Restrictions: Women on a specific diet, including vegans and those with food intolerances and allergies, may need to take vitamins and minerals to avoid micronutrient deficiencies
Smoking: While it is critical for mothers to avoid cigarettes during pregnancy, those who continue to smoke have an increased need for specific nutrients such as vitamin C and folic acid.
Multiple pregnancies: Women who carry more than one baby need more micronutrients than women who carry one baby. Supplementation is often necessary to ensure optimal nutrition for both the mother and her babies.
Genetic mutations such as MTHFR: Methylene tetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) is a gene that converts folic acid into a form that the body can use. Pregnant women with this gene mutation may need to take a specific form of folic acid to avoid complications.
Poor nutrition: Women who eat too little or opt for low-nutrient foods may need to supplement with vitamins and minerals to avoid deficiencies.
In addition, experts such as those at the American College of Obstetricians and
Gynecologists (ACOG) recommend that all pregnant people take a prenatal vitamin and folic acid supplement. This is advised to fill nutritional gaps and prevent birth defects such as spina bifida.

Depending on your personal circumstances, you should be willing to take on the task of adding supplements to your daily routine, if directed by your healthcare provider.

Herbal supplements can help with ailments - with caution
In addition to micronutrients, herbal supplements are popular.

A 2019 study found that 15.4 percent of pregnant women in the United States use herbal supplements. However, not everyone discloses to their doctor that they are using them. (A 2017 study found that about 25 percent of herbal supplement users in the United States don't tell their papers.)
