A crucial element to a healthy pregnancy and growing baby is the nutrition of the mother. Whatever the mother partakes of is passed directly onto the baby – while in utero and through breastfeeding. Not all moms (myself included) are able to insure the intake of the proper balance of all needed nutrients, so a dependable multivitamin is a necessity.
What I Think About NatureMade Prenatal Vitamins
Nature Made Prenatal Multivitamins now come in a soft gel with DHA. DHA is an omega 3 fatty acid found in fish and known to help facilitate eye and brain development. This multivitamin is one I depend on to give me proper nutrition – especially on days when I know I could have eaten better. It is not a replacement for eating right, but I know that it provides me and my baby with all the vitamins and minerals we both need to grow strong.
After comparing the Nature made vitamins to my current prenatals I was struck with the following differences. First, the Nature Made softgels are much larger than my current vitamins. I glanced at the labels and there was not a substantially different amount of vitamins in either one, but Nature Made has the DHA my current ones do not. Second, these are a softgel so despite the size they were not difficult for me to swallow and I did not have a very bad after taste. Third, they have a stronger smell than my current pills – mostly due to the presence of the omega 3 oils.
Every woman responds to vitamins and pregnancy hormones differently, this is just my experience. I did not feel any more nauseous after taking them than I did after taking my current ones. The smell was not pleasant but I was willing to overlook it knowing I was helping my baby girl have what she needed for eye and brain development.
You can purchase Nature Made Prenatal Vitamins online or at Costco, Walgreens or Drugstore.com!
