Maybe help!: If you are B12 deficient, absolutely. But it is prudent to take B12 if you have nerve damage from any cause!

Yes: It is one of the vitamins in your daily prenatal vitamin so you probably don't need anymore. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Our bodies absorb vitamins much better through unprocessed foods than supplements.

Yes: You can take vit c supplements while pregnant or breastfeeding but you should not exceed recommended dosing. You will get more with eating lots of fruits and vegetables high in vitamin c. Our bodies absorb vitamins much better when presented in unprocessed foods. Plus if you are taking a multivitamin everyday that will also have vitamin C in it. Too many vtiamin supplements are not good.
