In brief: Prenatal vitamin

Other tan a prenatal vitamin or Rhogam injection at 28 weeks if mother is rh negative no medications are routinely prescribed.
Other medications are only prescribed when necessary and the benefit outweighs any risk.

In brief: Prenatal

Folic acid is very important during pregnancy for your baby's development.
There are usually no other medications prescribed for a healthy mother with a routine pregnancy. There are specific antibiotics and pain medications that are safe to use during pregnancy but should only be used with your doctors recommendation.

Folic acid and prenatal vitamins are for the normal pregnancy

In brief: Prenatal vitamins

No prescription medications are needed for a normal pregnancy.
We recommend a daily prenatal vitamin with Folic Acid & calcium supplement. Women with anemia will be given additional iron. Other prescription medications are reserved for specific medical problems. Your doctor can give you a list of over the counter medications that are safe to take for symptoms that come up during pregnancy.
