    Folic Acid Supplement

    Hi, ladies!
    Have anyone tried any folic acid supplement before being pregnant? What brands did you use? Any suggestions?

    By the way, have anyone been vaccinated for rubella? Is it ok to be vaccinated before getting pregnant? Let's say, 2-3 months from now? thanks

    Hi,
    I've used Pregnacare with all three of my pregnancies. You can get it in Watsons.

    You also need to be immunised against ruebella, but I don't know how long before getting pregnant, as in the UK we're all immunised as teenagers.

    Hello!
    My wife had to be re-vaccinated for ruebella before trying to become pregnant. The vaccine must eventually wear out (at least in some people). They gave her a blood test to determine the prescence of the antibodies.
    Folic acid is now a "necessity" here in the US.
