It may take two to tango, but it often feels like the woman is the only one who has to prepare for pregnancy. We have heard about the benefits of taking folic acid for up to a year before pregnancy, but now in the UK, vitamin manufacturers are advertising supplements for both men and women to put them on the right health path prior to conception.
Sanatogen Mother & Father to Be includes multivitamins for both men and women preparing to create a baby. The woman's pills include the usual mix of prenatal supplements, including increased amounts of folic acid, while the men's version is made up of key nutrients like zinc to ensure that his reproductive system is healthy.
Would you put your husband on a male prenatal vitamin to help with conception?
