Hi and welcome to XXXXXXX Thank you for your query.
In general there is no reason not to take it. It can only be helpful. But just be sure that she takes it properly and in adequate dosage. Most important vitamins for these things are biotic and vit C. Other important are folic acid, vitamin A may be toxic in high doses so be sure not to take it too can be found in carrot and red beet so it is better to take VIT A from these sources than from supplements.
WIsh you good health. If you have any question I ll be glad to help.
