Women’s Health: Prenatal
Which supplements should I use for prenatal support?
Pregnancy is a time of high fetal sensitivity to environmental and nutritional substances. Because of that, it's vital to work with your healthcare practitioner to determine what is the best, and safest, to keep your growing baby healthy.
As a good start, you'll most likely want to take a good prenatal multivitamin, such as Doctor's Choice™ Prenatal Formula.
The other suggested supplements contain nutrients that are especially important when pregnant or nursing, or if you are just considering pregnancy. Whichever you decide to take, please keep your healthcare practitioner informed of any dietary supplements or other medications you may be using or considering adding to your regimen.
