Hi Mia, I am 11 weeks pregnant now. I had been to Doctor last week and she had prescribed me to take MCBM-69 everyday. I had come to DHA is essential during this time .As the medicine MCBM-69 doesnot have DHA in it, Can I have Fol123 instead of MCBM-69, which inturn has Folicacid, vit B12 and DHA. Please advise. Thanks Nidiya

Thanks for the query.

Yes you can have Fol123 instead of MCBN-69.
As you already know DHA is very important for child's brain development.
Daily required dose is 200 IU.
Diet having high DHA include Eggs, cod liver oil, Fish and milk.
Hope this helps,
Dr Nilofer
