From the moment you start planning for a baby, you have special needs that continue throughout your pregnancy and whilst you’re breastfeeding.

Especially during this time it is important to follow a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.

Food supplements Femibion 1 and 2, to be used as a complement to a varied and balanced diet, provide you with folate together with other essential micronutrients for you and your baby.
