Prenatal vitamins: Prenatal vitamins are typically full of b vitamins especially folate (folic acid) which if taken prior to getting pregnant lowers risk of spinal tube defects. Some studies suggest benefit to fish (oil) but that data is still early. Otherwise, best to check w/your family doc or OB for their specific recommendations given where you live & your specific medical, surgical & obstetric history.

Vitamins: A good multivitamin is a good idea. It's like an insurance policy for when we don't eat right, don't sleep well, or are especially stressed. Go to a good store or get some guidance because the popular brands are typically very week and not helpful.
