It’s important to take a prenatal vitamin while you’re pregnant, however you don’t have to have a prescription for one. Many of the prenatals made by pharmaceutical companies are composed of synthetic vitamins, and have added fillers, artificial colors and harsh stool softeners. Instead, look for one made from organic whole food sources, with added greens and digestive enzymes. Also choose one with probioitics, as studies have shown that pregnant and breastfeeding women who take probiotics have children with fewer allergies and less excema. Along with your prenatal vitamin, take a high quality fish oil supplement. Buy one that is 3rd party tested for pcbs and mercury. Here are some brands I like:
Super Nutrition
Nordic Naturals
