In brief: What is on the label
Take what the manufacturer recommends.
Vitamin a is a fat soluble vitamin and can build up to high levels. Babies need a certain amount of vitamin a, but not a high level, as it can cause birth defects. Also, read the labels of anti-aging creams you might have, as they usually contain retinoic acid or isotretinoin, which is vitamin a. Go over them with your ob/gyn.

In brief: ?
There is not one ingredient in prenatal vitamins so therefore it can not be displayed (apples to apples) in 'mg.
' you should take the recommendation of the manufacturer or your health care provider. Folic acid (folate (folic acid)) is one ingredient that you may need more of. Some will be 400 mcg, others 800 mcg and others 1000 mcg. Sometimes you need even more which can be accomplished with separate folate (folic acid).
