I know that Choline supp. during the prenatal period can mitaigate effects of alcohol on the developing fetus, but what about a taking choline prenatally as part of a "normal" pregnancy routine added to your regular vitamins? While we are on the subject, what about Betaine as well?View Thread
As a researcher in the field of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders and fetal development I would say that it is extremely important to take a prenatal vitamin that has around 800mcg of Folic Acid, 200-300mg of Omega-3 fatty acids, around 700mg of B6, about 700 IU of Vitamin D, 450-550mg of Choline, about 1500mg Calcium, and don't forget the iron too but you'll have to check with your doctor about that amount or look on PubMed for what is reccommended. Hope that this is helpful!
