Dr. Payal M pls
Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa
Folate deficiency during pregnancy can increase the risk of preterm delivery, infant low birth weight, and fetal growth retardation. Folate deficiency in the mother increases homocysteine level in the blood which may lead to spontaneous abortion and pregnancy complications such as placental abruption and preeclampsia... Yes although your baby is fully developed as in the spine etc, its not necessary now but still it helps you and baby in other risks too..
Folic acid wont hurt you to take it and have a build up of it as it has other benefits to you and baby other than the prevention of defects,so dont worry and i am sure you have been told baby is very healthy. So relax and enjoy this precious time...
thank u so much DR. shanthappa
