Doctor will advise you to stop after 1st trimester and replace with other supplements.

Stopped folic acid after first trimester and started on Blackmores Pregnancy Advanced

You can stop if your doctor has given you obimin as obimin also contains folic.

With my gynae, she recommend folic acid for the 1st trimester only.

I stop as per gynae advice. As multi vit has folic acid content.
