-Spreading the awareness of the importance of Folic Acid-
Finding out that you are pregnant can be one of the happiest moments of your life but just think if at your first scan you were told that your child has a fatal condition that isn't compatible with life outside the womb?
Many women go through it and are heart broken by it. They are told that to prevent it happening in later pregnancies they should take a higher dose of folic acid - 5mg instead of 400mcg.
One question has always come to mind when I think of the time I was told this - why don't Doctors prescribe the higher dose to everyone to prevent these defects to start with as it is not harmful to mother or child, it is much more beneficial if anything.
