Usually Prenatal vitamins have DHA added, which is what you would get with fish oil. Yes, you may start vitamins preconception

Yes: The short short answer to all three questions would be a yes. Due to reported frauds in products for supplements, vitamins etc, from stores like GNC as audited by the FDA, just make sure you are getting your bank for your buck.

Doesn't hurt. : Prior studies showed an association between fish consumption and better neurodevelopmental outcomes. However, more recent information specifically regarding fish oil supplements has not shown the same benefit. While there is no real safety concern, you may be spending money without having much of an effect. I recommend pregnant women consume fish oil by regularly eating fish that is low in mercury.
