One capsules of Blackmores Pregnancy & Breast-Feeding Formula provides: 200mcg of folic acid whic may help reduce the risk of birth defects of the brain and/or spinal cord (spina bifida).
DHA, an omega-3 fatty acid, which is present in breast milk and is particularly important for children's brain and visual development.
Iron for red blood cell formation and oxygen transport.
Calcium for strong bone development and maintenance.
Iodine which is important for baby s normal mental development.
Blackmores Pregnancy and Breast-Feeding Formula provides folate which is recommended one month prior to conception for all women planning pregnancy. This should continue through the first 3 months of pregnancy. In the early stages of pregnancy, folate plays a vital role in the prevention of brain and spinal cord defects such as spina bifida.
Recent research has shown that omega-3 long chain fatty acids are essential for babies health. DHA - the main long chain fatty acid in breast milk and also present in tuna oil - is particularly important for the normal function of the brain and nerves and for development of normal eyesight.
