Pregnancy supplements provide crucial vitamins and minerals to women who are trying to become pregnant, are pregnant, or are breast-feeding.

Along with eating a well-rounded diet containing proteins, carbohydrates and fats, many women buy Pregnancy Vitamin Supplements to provide the body with the nutrients that benefit both mother and child by:

  • Promoting proper fetal development;
  • Preventing vitamin or mineral deficiencies in mother and child;
  • Reducing the risk of certain birth defects;
  • Reducing physical and mental fatigue from pregnancy or milk production.

Prenatal supplements are not a replacement for a good diet, but do help ensure complete nutrition which can be difficult to achieve through food alone. During pregnancy and breast-feeding the average woman's body requires 150 percent more than the standard daily intake of certain vitamins and minerals.

Choosing a Pregnancy Supplement

Anyone who has looked into the topic of prenatal supplements knows how complex the subject is. Opinions as to which vitamins and minerals are most beneficial, and in what amounts, vary to at least some extent between doctors, researchers, organizations and regulatory agencies. Those nutrients which are widely agreed to be crucial during fetal development include:

  • Folic acid
  • Iron
  • Zinc
  • Calcium
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin B12
  • Vitamin E

The vast majority of prenatal supplements contain the above ingredients, in addition to an assortment of other vitamins and minerals depending on the particular product, such as:

  • Iodine
  • Manganese
  • Magnesium
  • Copper
  • Phosphorus
  • Thiamine
  • Riboflavin
  • Niacin
  • Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5 & B6
  • Vitamin H

The beneficial effects of the above vitamins and minerals in pregnancy are somewhat less clear than in the former list. However, the above ingredients are very commonly found in prenatal supplements and their safety in pregnancy has been established.

Many of the vitamins and minerals found in pregnancy supplements---particularly folic acid, which plays a significant role in preventing certain birth defects---are also found in green, leafy vegetables, citrus fruits, beans and nuts.

Ultimately parents planning to buy Pregnancy Vitamin Supplements should investigate the ingredients---and their quantity---in a given product, and ideally speak with a trusted doctor on the subject before making a decision.

Other Considerations

Some other factors to keep in mind before you buy Pregnancy Vitamin Supplements:

  • Most pregnancy supplements come in tablets, and like most multivitamins, these tablets tend to be large. Look for tablets which can be split or crushed if large pills are problematic. There are also powder supplements available, which can be mixed with fluids.
  • Some supplements are designed to be taken once per day, others two or three times; frequent dosing can be a concern in busy, hectic schedules.
  • Be sure the product has been subject to clinical trials which can back up any claims it makes; many untested supplements, while unlikely to be harmful, provide little to no real benefit.
  • Check all ingredients---many supplements contain lactose, nuts, gluten, preservatives and other substances that some individuals are hypersensitive to.

Pregnancy often goes hand-in-hand with nausea and vomiting. Some women find it difficult to tolerate supplements. Flexibility is often key here---taking tablets with or without food, in the morning or before bed, all at once or in multiple small doses and so forth can make all the difference as far as inducing nausea or vomiting.

Most supplements are somewhat flexible in how they can be taken, though some are relatively rigid. A particularly versatile supplement is Elevit, which can be taken at any time of day, all at once or in multiple small doses, with or without food, and tablets may be crushed, split or dissolved.
