Folic acid info

Have you had enough? Taking folic acid supplements prior to conception has been proven to reduce the risk of having a baby with a neural tube defect (of which spina bifida is the most common). However surveys suggest that 50% of women in Scotland still don't take folic acid prior to pregnancy – learn more and help us make everyone Folic Acid Aware!
