Low Choline Levels In Pregnant Women Raise Babies’ Risk For Brain And Spinal-cord Defects, Study Shows.

Good study with a large population pool.  Choline is a building block that is “essential” for good nerve development in babies and especially during pregnancy.  Note that they recommend that you get your Choline from your diet.  However, past studies have shown that not everyone absorbs nutrients efficiently.  So, take it as a supplement also.  You can buy it at vitamin shops and add it to your diet during pregnancy.  Taking a vitamin to prevent a tragedy  like spina bifida is a small price to pay.
