What happens if I don't take any prenatal vitamins?

Increased risk: Prenatal vitamins are formulated both to provide the expectant mother with what she needs herself, and to provide certain nutrients that decrease the risk of certain birth defects. Most notably, the extra folate (folic acid) decreased the risk of spinal cord defects in babies. Does this mean that if you don't take them your baby will have a spinal cord defect? No it doesn't. But the risk will be increased.
