Folic Acid Brochure for New Moms

"Congratulations, Mom. You Have a Beautiful Baby" explains why folic acid is important even after childbirth and reminds new mothers to take a multivitamin with folic acid every day. The brochure, produced by the National Birth Defects Prevention Network, is targeted to postpartum women. Tips on postpartum self-care, such as getting enough rest; finding time to relax; and eating a healthy, varied diet, are presented. Content is appropriate for use in a variety of settings, including hospitals, obstetric and pediatric offices, and family planning and WIC programs.

This full-color brochure in .PDF format is available in English and in Spanish.
