In brief: No

Prenatal vitamins taken during pregnancy offer more help than potential side-effects unless a woman already has a severe metabolic problem. Wilson disease is a metabolic problem causing an over accumulation of copper.
Vitamins do not cause it. However, vitamins can contain an excess of certain minerals and may not be necessary in the non-pregnant state.
