We advise all pregnant women to take folic acid tablets for the first 12 weeks of their pregnancy. For most women the dose is 400micrograms (0.4mg a day). If your risk of having a child with a spinal cord problem is increased then the dose is higher (5mg a day – you will need a prescription for a higher dose). If you think you are at risk, speak to your doctor or midwife.
