Printer-friendly versionSend to friend

Pregnant women have a slightly increased need for vitamin B12, compared to other individuals; a severe vitamin B12 deficiency can have serious consequences for both a pregnant woman and her developing fetus.

Vitamin B12 is stored in large quantities in the body. The developing fetus uses up some of the pregnant woman's store of this vitamin, both in the process of development and to build up its own stores. At birth, the baby will have a much higher level of vitamin B12 in the blood than the mother.

Prenatal vitamins contain vitamin B12, almost always in doses significantly higher than the Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA).
These higher doses are safe for women.
The RDA of vitamin B12 for pregnant women is 2.6 mcg per day, compared to 2.4 mcg per day for most other healthy adults.
