A survey of 2,208 pregnant women commissioned by Pregnacare as part of their ‘What I Wish I’d Known’ campaign has revealed that 68% of women take a multivitamin supplement throughout their entire pregnancy.
53% of all expectant mums managed to maintain a healthy diet throughout their pregnancy. But 40% of mums-to-be said they had to avoid certain food groups due to illness. Multivitamin supplements such as Pregnacare can ensure that mum and baby have all their nutritional needs met.
Whilst 94% of those surveyed were aware of the importance of taking folic acid when trying for a baby and during the first 3 months of pregnancy, almost 60% were unaware of the recommended daily intake of folic acid of 400µg.
Another 42% of those surveyed turn to online parenting websites and forums first when seeking pregnancy-related advice. Only one in four mums-to-be seek professional advice from their GP, with the same number turning to their partner or families for advice.
Pregnacares new Brand Ambassador Lucy Kennedy says: "I’m thrilled to be involved in the Pregnacare ‘What I Wish I’d Known’ campaign. I understand pregnancy can be a really worrying time for mums to be, especially if this is your first baby – that’s why I love the idea of the campaign so much. It’s giving mums the opportunity to help others and share advice about what’s really important when you’re having a baby."
