Women who don't get enough vitamin B12 may have a higher risk of giving birth to a baby with a potentially disabling or fatal birth defect.
Vitamin B12 is found in meat, poultry, milk, eggs, and other fortified foods. Vegans and vegetarians, and women who have intestinal disorders that prevent them from absorbing vitamin B12, are most susceptible to vitamin B12 deficiency. Vegetarian sources of vitamin B12 include fortified breakfast cereals and some fortified vegetarian "meat" products like veggie burgers.
