Dear Meetu,

Biotin and folic acid are important supplements and are required for the benefit of baby, especially in 1st three months. In fact folic acid is needed for the proper development of nervous system of baby. You have not mentioned that from where have you read that folic acid causes nerve damage, i don't think its true.
The tablet is safe with hardly any side effects and it is required for your baby, so continue taking it.
Take care.
