Last time I asked ther pharmacist she was dodgy about it. But I'm ttc, so probably should take it?

Well my Ds had to have folic acid every day for about 3 mths from when he was born so I would have thought it is fine.

yes I think so - well there is folic acid in that Pregnacare supplement and the marketing blurb says it can be taken while breastfeeding (not that i bothered)

You should definitely take it if TTC
