B12 & Pregnancy

Healing Vibes

Most people know that Folic Acid is an important supplement to take during pregnancy.  But, folic acid isn't the only essential vitamin to be aware of.  B12 is another crucial nutrient for both the mother, and the developing baby.  Unfortunately, many people are deficient in vitamin B12.

Sources of B12

Many of the people who are deficient in B12 are vegetarians or vegans.  This is because B12 is naturally found in animal products.

  • fish/ meat/ poultry
  • eggs
  • milk
  • breakfast cereals

Important Roles of B12

  • boosting natural energy
  • neural tube formation (similar to Folic Acid)
  • spine & brain development
  • balancing emotions & mood
  • stress management
  • promotes healthy nervous system
  • aids in neurological functions

B12 deficiencies are rare, but they can cause very serious birth defects.  Most of these involve defects of the brain and/  or spinal cord.

A great way to make sure you are getting enough B12 is B12 injections.  We offer them hear in the clinic!
