For the first 12 weeks you need to take folic acid. If your on medication you might need a high dose of folic acid so it’s important to see your GP about that.

Also you should be taking vitamin D all through pregnancy. There is pregnacare vitamin d you can get from the grocery store and it’s not that expensive.

Make sue to take methyl folate as folic acid poorly absorbed and also cancer risk.

Make sure your vitamin d and thyroid levels are optimal.

Also check your iron level (ferritin) and if low take a suitable iron supplement to prevent anemia.

Eating omega 3 fish foods like saridine fish, walnut etc useful as omega 3 needed for proper brain development.
