Pregnant? Pick up your Folic Acid for free from Asda Pharmacy

If you’re expecting a baby make sure you pop into your local Asda Pharmacy during our Baby Event this week to pick up your free Folic Acid.

Folic acid available free at Asda

Folic acid is an essential supplement for all women who are pregnant or trying to conceive. You can pick up a three month supply from Asda Pharmacy for free while the Baby Event is on (offer ends 15th September 2014).

The Department of Health recommends women should take a daily supplement of 400 micrograms of Folic Acid while they’re trying to conceive and for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. One in three pregnant women don’t take the supplement because they do not realise how important it is to the development of their unborn baby.

Faisal Tuddy, deputy superintendent pharmacist at Asda, says: “Folic Acid is an essential vitamin for expectant mothers or those trying to conceive. We’re delighted to be able to offer a three month supply free of charge to those who need it the most.”
