Supplemental folic acid intake increases maternal folate status. Low maternal folate status is a risk factor in the development of neural tube defects in the developing foetus. As well as playing a role in the process of cell division, folic acid also contributes to maternal tissue growth during pregnancy.

Pregnacare Conception includes zinc which contributes to normal fertility and reproduction whilst vitamin B6 contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity. The formula also includes vitamin B12, iron, magnesium and 15mcg vitamin D which have a role in the process of cell division.

If you experience a delay in your monthly cycle, this may not necessarily mean you are pregnant and it is advised to take a pregnancy test and speak to your health professional. Pregnacare Conception is a nutrient based, researched formula without any drugs or hormones. If your monthly cycle is not regular we recommend you consult your doctor or health professional.
