5 Quick Tips for Picking A Prenatal
1. Observe Daily Serving Size
This means how many pills you'll be taking per day. Servings can range from one to even up to six pills daily. Confirm that the daily number of pills listed is realistic for you.
2. Avoid a Gummy Option
Gummy vitamins may be easier (and more fun) for some but ,many essential nutrients are either missing or they are provided at a lower than recommended dose. Iron is not at all found in a gummy vitamin. In addition, key prenatal nutrients like DHA, iodine, zinc and others are also not adequate in a gummy.
3. Consider your personal preferences and/or medical needs, ie. cultural, religious, or medical. Options are available. For example: Does the prenatal need to be vegan/vegetarian, kosher, gluten free, allergen-free?
4. Compare Cost
Keep in mind that some bottles will only cover one month or many times 2-6 months. Sometimes what appears to be a higher cost is actually the best deal!
5. Look for the following key nutrients on the label:
In addition to folate, growing research is supporting the importance of many essential vitamins and minerals in pregnancy. See more below!
Prenatal vitamins are very beneficial taken daily prior to fertility treatment, pregnancy, and preferably 3 months (or more) before conception. If you’re actively trying to conceive, start the prenatal regimen now.
