MegaFood Baby & Me 2

Four tablets a day act as both a pre- and postnatal supplement to support the health of mom and baby, during both pregnancy and lactation.

A bonus bolus of fruits and herbs boosts the nutrition and makes it suitable to take on an empty stomach. 

UpSpring Prenatal+

This package contains 30 softgels to ensure effective doses of DHA and choline for fetal brain development, along with 90 mango- peach gummies that contain folate to stave off neural tube defects, as well as an all-around multi for all-around health. It’s non-GMO and gluten free, and contains no artificial ingredients.  

Premama Prenatal + DHA

These gluten-free, vegan, organic, kosher, citrus gummies feed you with a complete multi, including vitamin B6 for morning sickness, folic acid against neural tube defects, a special form of iron to minimize iron-induced constipation, plus a dollop of algae-based omega-3 DHA and EPA (you’ll want to take extra DHA to supplement this gummy). 

HappyMama Prenatal Probiotic Supplement

Each box contains 15 flavor-free, single-serving packs that contain 8 billion CFUs of Lactobacillus rhamnosus HN001 and Bifidobacterium lactis HN019, which have been shown in human studies to reduce the risk of the irksome infant skin condition called eczema, the digestive issues of constipation and diarrhea, as well as overall sick days for mama. 

Rainbow Light Vibrance Prenatal Multivitamin plus Energy Support

Four capsules per serving will get expectant moms triumphant doses of all the essential vitamins and minerals, including more than a gram’s worth of nutrient- dense greens. Special note: We like the methylcobalamin form of B12, which is the form that appears naturally in B12-rich foods, which your body recognizes. Also, the multi contains synthetic folic acid instead of food-state folate, but that’s because all the research on preventing birth defects has been done on folic acid. 

New Chapter Perfect Prenatal Multivitamin

Three tablets of food-based nutrients give you a solid go on the vitamins and minerals you’ll need from a nice blend of fruits and veggies. Because they’re food-based, you can take them on an empty stomach.
