Yes , pre natal vitamins should be started before you conceive.
Dr. Nicholas Perera

In brief: Absolutely,

Absolutely, all women of childbearing age should take a prenatal vitamin once daily, whether or not they are currently pregnant.
The reason is that the vitamins themselves are incredibly safe and the important time to be taking them is very early on after conception- usually before you even know you are pregnant.
