In brief: Vitamins

Prenatal vitamins are good in general.
We don't generally eat a balanced diet with all the minerals we need. In particular prenatal vitamins have a high Folic Acid which prevents spinal cord defects in babies. You can just take centrum sivler or a similar vitamin you buy in the store that is not prescrftption and get the same benefit.

I also recommend omega 3 fish oils and probiotics for great skin health.
