What brand of Pro-natal vitamins is everyone taking while TTC? (those who are taking them) Also those blessed ladies who have already had a baby what kind did you take that were good? Thanks

Megan- I don't think the brand really matters as long as it contains at least 0.6 mg of folic acid and 25 mg of zinc. These two things in particular are essential for a baby's development.

Audrey is right! The brand doesn't matter just make sure it has enough folic acid in it.

The only thing I have heard about the vitamins from my ob are make sure they are absorbed. Take a 1/2 cup of white vinegar. Put one tablet in the cup then stir. After 20 min if the tablet has disolved or if stirred breaks into small pieces then your okay. If not the nutrients aren't being absorbed and the folic acid is lost in urine.

Selene... thanks, that's good advice. Definitely worth "wasting" one pill to make sure it is helping your baby.

Megan, I was told to take 400mcg of folic acid daily for about three months before ttc. It is supposed to reduce the chances of brain and spinal cord birth defects.

I am taking prenate elite. (doctor prescribed)

I'm taking Sanategen Pro-Natal will they be as good as doctor prescribed ones? I have spoken to my doctor about TTC and they never mentioned prescribing vitamins they just said to make sure Im takin them.
