Folic acid is an important component in a developing fetus. Sad to say that there are still women who are not aware of the detrimental effects on the fetus if their is a deficiency of folic acid or some who are ignorant enough to keep their pregnancy a secret until its too late.
In order to prevent any of this, information dissemination should be done to pregnant women and women who plans to become one.
Some cases are inevitable circumstances. Today we are celebrating World Birth Defects Day to remind ourselves that we should take part in informing the public about its solution and it is folic acid supplementation for pregnant women, that we also take care of them despite their condition and that they are still loved and remembered.
