Every woman needs iron/ vitamins/calcium supplements in pregnancy to meet the demands of growing fetus.
You are getting all of these Prenacare( vitamins), Orofex ( Iron, folic acid)- which are essential ( not at all harmful)for your present stage of pregnancy. Please continue with it.
Get regular pregnancy check ups done, the prescription may change according to the needs with advance of pregnancy.
