Vitamin B-12 May Prevent Birth Defects
Women of childbearing age (especially those who are pregnant or trying to conceive) are advised to eat 400 mg of folic acid (folate) daily to prevent neural tube defects, such as spina bifida, from occurring in their babies. New research shows that vitamin B12 may also play a role.
Congratulations on your 3 beautiful babies. I'm sorry they came so early and have to be in the NICU so long. Thank God they all survived the early birth. You have a long road ahead of you but there will be lots of joyous times too. Hang in there.

Well my triplets arrived at 25 weeks and 2 days....long road ahead in the NICU but they are already 15 days old. Everyday is a struggle but I spend every minute with them that I can.

To the ladies who have their lovely multiples... When did you deliver?
I was admitted last week to hospital at 23 weeks 3 days with my triplets. I've been battling preterm labour issues and am on permanent hospital bed rest, my goal is 28 weeks right now but who knows what these babies will decide it's time.
Id just love to hear any of your experiences so I can feel some hope
