In brief: Folic Acid Important

Folic acid is extremely important for women trying to get pregnant.
Taking 400 mcg of Folic Acid daily for at least 2 months before conception decreases the risk of neural tube defects such as spina bifida. Biotin is an important for cell growth, but we get enough without needing supplements. Folic acid & biotin are not going to change the "quality" of the egg itself.

Folic acitd is very important as Dr. Watson says before conception. You will be pregnant and not know it yet. The neural tube closes around day 28 and folic acid plays an important role in this. Get those prenatal vitamins and start them early!!!!!!!!!!!!

In brief: No

While supplements are important during pregnancy to insure optimum nutrition to the growing fetus, the quality of the egg you produce is pre-determined by your genetics.
You cannot control this with diet.
