“I just went to my first appointment and my midwife was concerned that My Kind Organics prenatal vitamin, which is all plant based, might not be providing me the best support. It sounded like there was a difference between folate, which is in my prenatal, and folic acid and she wanted to make sure that I had the recommended dosage of folic acid–which I know is important through listening into your podcast. I just thought I had picked this awesome prenatal and was bummed to find out that she wanted to prescribe me specific prenatal. Is there a difference between folate and folic acid, is one better than other? Thanks for all your insight and support! I have really enjoyed listening to your show!” – Erin
