When I was pregnant with my kids, I would take that prescription from the doctor for the prenatal vitamin and attempt to take them only to find that they upset my stomach that was already very sensitive and already dealing with all-day nausea and only led me to have a puking episode within 10 minutes of taking it. I quickly stopped taking those pills (that were the size of horse pills and hard to swallow) and went back to my regular multi-vitamin. I kinda wish this was a product I knew about when I was pregnant because this would have been a much easier way to take my prenatal vitamins.
Some of the vitamins, minerals, herbs in Premama that are designed to help during pregnancy might not necessarily be on a regular multi-vitamin include: Iron (healthy blood cell formation), Vitamin D3 (healthy bone health and Immune function), Folic Acid (reduce risk of neural tube defects), CoQ10 (reduce risk of pre-eclampsia), Ginger Root (nausea relief), plus many other vitamins and minerals.
I remember those days with 20 and 16 weeks of all-day nausea. Yup, it sucked and I would have tried anything, so the idea that my vitamin could have also offered some nausea relief would be welcome.
They recommend taking it with 6 ounces of a cold beverage with vitamin C in it. The vitamin C helps with iron absorption but could be mixed in other cold beverages. I first tried it 100% juice blend that had a day's serving of Vitamin C and as the product claimed it was flavorless when put in a flavored beverage. I did try it in water & ate an orange, but in that I could taste something (I think it was the DHA), so I will have the rest in juice.
Some doctors and organizations recommend that all women ages 15 to 50 take a prenatal vitamin every day since 50% of all pregnancies are unplanned.
