Making Sense of Prenatal Supplements

INTRO

 

What do you know about prenatal vitamins?

 

One of the first things I was told about getting pregnant and pregnancy health was to begin taking a prenatal vitamin. Instead of starting a dialogue about why and what supplementation was necessary, I found myself at the pharmacy confused and clueless.  [pmpro_member field=”display_name”], I had no idea how to choose the best prenatal vitamin for myself and my developing baby and honestly, for my first pregnancy, I ended up choosing a popular brand with good marketing on the front of the label.

 

Now, that I’m more mindful of what I consume, I know I should have been looking at the back of the label, where the ingredients are listed. Because good marketing doesn’t mean a product is the best.

 

The problem is that many of us are confused or overwhelmed by the back of the prenatal supplement labels. Let’s change that today because Damn Good Mom’s know what they are putting into their bodies.
