The National Women's Health Information Center lists taking folic acid as one of the most important things you can do before getting pregnant.  Women are recommended to take a prenatal vitamin with at least 400 mcg of folic acid starting three months before they plan to get pregnant.  Folic acid is important, not just for the prevention of neural tube defects, but according to the University of Maryland Medical Center, there is evidence that it may reduce your risk of miscarriage as well.  Research from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden and the US National Institute of Child Health and Human Development supports this conclusion.  They found that women with low folic acid levels had a higher rate of miscarriage and were more likely to have fetuses with a chromosomal defect (one of the most common causes of miscarriage).
