I'm currently taking folic acid and vitamin D however I am wondering if there is anything else I could or should be taking?
I don't eat fish and I've seen that fish oils should be avoided so is there anything they can substitute in vitamins as I am not getting any fish in my diet?
Also, what vitamins should I completely avoid?

You should check with your midwife for specifics. I was told to take folic acid for the first 12 weeks and vitamin D the whole time. Explicitly told not to take vitamin A.
I might take calcium in addition.

Bit d and folic acid is all you need.
You don't need to avoid fish oil - just cod liver oil as it has loads of vit a in it. Too much bit a is a bad thing.
Just follow the nhs guidelines and you'll be fine.

I recommend Wild Nutrition’s pregnancy multi vitamins. The vitamins are food grown and therefore more bio available. For example, the folic acid is in folate form rather than man made.

I took folic acid & vitamin D from conception up until around 12 weeks & now I take Pregnacare gummies everyday (not great at swallowing tablets).
