Hi,Suneeta,
Folic acid has no side effect on the baby.
During pregnancy we advice Iron and Folic acid for anemia to expecting mother along with other vitamin supplements.
So nothing to worry.
ok and bye.

Can b12 or folic acid deficiency cause hair thinning and hair loss? I am a 57 year old female and have had tingling in hands a feet, mouth sores that come and go in a couple of days, a lot of hair thinning, low energy and my doctor tested my mch and it came back as 33.5. I haven t had my follow visit or test on b12 or folic acid yet. I also have Crohns and take methotrexate injection. I only take a one a day vitamin so after getting the results about my mch it make sense that I could have anemia. But can it also affect my hair growth?

Hi, I'm 25 years old female and have been experiencing hair loss for over 8 years now. I also got my CBC test and thyroid test done but they are all fine - I don't have iron deficiency or thyroid problem, I don't understand the cause of this gradual hair loss. It started after I'd done extreme dieting at the age of 16, but it's been years since I've stopped dieting and eating healthy but still no improvement. I also take multivitamins as prescribed by a dermatologist. Neither does such condition run in my family.. Please help!
p.s I am 52 kg in weight and 5'5" in height.
