preventing birth defects Lock Rss

Hi all,

We at Practical Parenting are running a feature on folate or folic acid. This is considered essential to prevent birth defects in your bubs.

Has anyone had a deficiency of folate whilst pregnant. Feel free to share your stories, just note that we are on a tight deadline.


hey sue ... sorry i dont have any info for you but i just wanted to ask you ... do you write articles for practical parenting? I love that magazine!! Congrats i think you guys do a great job!!

eìí? well ... it started with a kiss eìí?-3-064

i never took anything during my pregnancies, and knock on wood my kids came out "normal".
whereas my SIL took all the things they they try to push down your throat.... iron tablets, folic acid, and more, and you know what???? she had a baby with a birth defect!!! :~ sad what my darling nephew has is called PROTEUS SYNDROME (ever heard of the elephant man?). apparently it is very rare and only 120 cases worldwide have been documented.
so go figure??
