What Medicines Can I Take When I'm Pregnant?
When you find out that you’re pregnant it’s a wonderful feeling, but all of a sudden there are a whole lot of do’s and don’ts and it can be hard to keep up with what is best for your developing baby.
If you get sick, it can be difficult to know what to do and which medicines you can take without putting your little one at risk.
Today we’re going to look at some of the most common illnesses you might have and how you can treat them during pregnancy.
What drug can I take during pregnancy to make my baby healthy? My baby is 17 weeks now
Pregnacare Original tablets contain 10Âµg of Vitamin D, which is recommended by the NHS for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Vitamin D helps to control the levels of phosphate and calcium in the body, helping to support healthy teeth and bones. They also contain 400Âµg of folic acid, which is also recommended by the NHS in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy and can be used throughout pregnancy. Folic acid encourages healthy development of the spine in foetuses and reduces the risks of your baby developing neural tube defects, such as spina bifida.
What are the different colours that Pregnacare blisters come in? I am a bit confused because I have seen that the Pregnacare care does not come in the same colous.
Pregnacare is available in multiple varieties. Pregnacare Max and Pregnacare Plus both contain two different supplements packaged in two foil colours (both have Omega-3 capsules in a pink foiled blister pack) and the vitamin supplements in a different foil colour. Pregnancare original contains only one type of supplement tablet and so has only one foil colour.
