      Your Baby

      In the first two weeks of the pregnancy cycle, the fertilized ovum develops in the mother’s ovary. It will then make its way through the oviduct to the uterus. 

      Your body

      Pregnancy starts after the last menstrual cycle when the ovum is fertilized. This marks the beginning of a new chapter in the life of a woman. 

      Folic acid prevents birth defects in the brain!

      Women who are trying to conceive should take care of their health, remembering to have a balanced diet for optimal growth conditions for the baby. Folic acid should be taken at the beginning (and even before) and throughout the pregnancy as this vitamin helps to prevent birth defects in your baby’s brain and spinal cord. Your doctor will give you folic acid supplements in the recommended amount for your consumption.
