The CDC recommends that if you are a woman considering getting pregnant, start taking folic acid. If you just found out you are pregnant, start taking folic acid and continue to take it while you are pregnant.

That makes it pretty clear that the benefits of taking folic acid before and during pregnancy must be immense.
