Symptoms:  N/A
Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.
Yes, the prenatal vitamins and DHA are safe in early pregnancy and can be continued to be taken as long as 3 months of conception and even beyond as recommended by the treating doctor. they help in brain maturation and prevent neural tube defects in the baby and help the brain grow normally.
There is no problem in taking them now at 6 weeks of your pregnancy and, in fact, can be taken during lactation as well
Hope this helped.
Wish you a safe pregnancy.
Regards
