“Folic acid, a vitamin for life” Campaign

A key part of our mission is the prevention of spina bifida, encouraging the consumption of folic acid in women of childbearing age and pregnant women, since it is known that this substance helps up to 70% to reduce the risk of children born with various defects (spina bifida, cleft lip and palate)

Among other benefits folic acid can be used in pregnancy for the proper development of the uterus, placenta, preventing maternal anemia, increases the baby's weight, prevent abortion, preterm delivery, placental abruption, preeclampsia, plus malformations such as cleft lip, cleft palate and heart problems among others.

The vitamin folic acid for Life campaign is a proposal Monica Uribe foundation focused on youth of the metropolitan area to improve in them to consuming folic acid before, during and after pregnancy to avoid the NTDs.

La dinamica consiste en asistir a los colegios y dar una charla a los chicos de 9,10 y 11 contando todo sobre este condición y como se puede prevenir.
