Is a vegan lifestyle and diet healthy for people and society?

A vegan diet during pregnancy, if not properly supported, can lead to malformations to the baby.

During pregnancy, folic acid consumption of 600 mcg/day is needed to avoid neural tube defects; adequate levels of vitamin D (600 UI/day), choline (450 mg/day), and iodine (220 mcg/day) are needed for normal fetal growth and brain development.
