Not really.: Prenatal pills are just multi-vitamins. While most of them contain iron, which is known to help hair growth, and some contain biotin (one of the b vitamins), which is also good for hair, they are not present in high enough dosages. You are better off just taking the iron and biotin - or better yet, let a dermatologist try to find out what is causing your hair loss in the first place. ...Read more

I'm trying to grow my hair out and people tell me that taking pre-natal vitamins helps it grow really fast. Is it okay to take when not pregnant?

I'm trying to grow my hair out and people tell me that taking  pre-natal vitamins helps it grow really fast. Is it okay to take when not pregnant?

Totally OK: It's best to take pre-natal vits BEFORE one becomes pregnant, as they're most important the first 2 weeks of pregnancy and many women don't know they're pregnant the first 2 weeks. Thus ALL women of childbearing age who are sexually active should take pre-natals preventively. Pre-natals are a multivit. with a limited amount of Vit A (too much A bad if pregnant). I advise multivits for everybody. ...Read more

So by my daughters head being small (in size) is there any possibility that it will grow at normal size later on in my pregnancy? Help and add details

Hard to say: There are normal infants that have small head size & this usually matches small body size. That kid would be expected to retain a small but normal head size at birth. Normal head growth reflects the need to accommodate the growing tissues inside. If something like the Zika virus injures the tissue, the head becomes abnormally small while the body remains normal. ...Read more
