Pregnant Women, You May Suffer These 2 Complications If You Are Not Taking Folic Acid.

Do you know that pregnant women need to take folic acid to make sure their babies are healthy? Folic acid is a type of foliate, which is a vitamin that plays important role in the body of a woman. When you don't get enough folic acid, it can harm your unborn child.

According to "Mayor Clinic", A pregnant woman may have problems if she does not take folic acid regularly while she is pregnant. In this article, we are going to look at some of the problems that may happen. Enjoy this article while you learn something new and become more aware.

There are a lot of things that could go wrong if you aren't taking Folic Acid during your pregnancy. Check them out below.

1. Spina Bifida is one of the problems that some babies have when they are born. Due to a lack of foliate in the body of a pregnant woman, this can happen. It can also happen when an unborn baby's spinal column doesn't fully close during development in the womb.

According to "Healthline", This leaves the spinal cord open, which means that the nerves that control the legs and other parts of the body won't work. People who are born with this disorder may have to deal with a lot of disabilities for the rest of their lives, and some may even need surgery to live. If a woman takes enough folic acid, it can help her avoid this problem.
