5 Things Every Pregnant Woman Should Look for in a Prenatal Vitamin

We would like to begin by saying, nothing is better for nourishing baby and mom than a nutrient dense diet of high quality food.

{ See Hit The Re-Start Button on Your Diet for examples }

Prenatal vitamins are a common staple for women who are expecting, lactating and those trying to conceive. Prenatal vitamins contain many vitamins and minerals that help cover any gaps in the mother’s diet and also play an important role in fetal development.

Not all prenatal vitamins are created equally and you must really be sure to read the labels.

Here are our top 5 things to look for in a prenatal vitamin

  1. Food-based not Synthetic
  2. Contains Folate not Folic Acid
  3. 100% Natural  (no wheat, sugar, artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, preservatives, additives, gluten, soy, yeast, milk, eggs, nuts, fish, or shellfish etc)
  4. Contains Probiotics
  5. Organic

 

Helpful Hints

  • To decrease nausea: try taking them with a snack and water, chew gum afterwards and preferably take before bedtime.
  • To avoid constipation: drink plenty of water, make sure your diet has lots of fiber and keep active

 

Folate in food:

Liver and all dark leafy vegetables such as spinach, collard greens, mustard greens, turnip greens and broccoli, etc. are rich in folate!

DHA in food:

Fatty fish, small amounts from grassfed animal fats, flaxhemp & chia seeds

*Add any of the above items together with raw milk and make a prenatal smoothie!
