In brief: Yes indirectly
Pernicious anemia is a deficiency of vitamin B12 and or folate (folic acid) (another b vitamin) that can lead to significant medical problems many of which affect the nervous system. Folate (folic acid) is so critical to fetal neural development that the fda recommends that all women trying to conceive or pregnant take a Folic Acid supplement of 0.
4 milligrams or 400 micrograms a day.
