Trying to find THE best prenatal vitamin out there and it is soooo hard! I want one that has everything its supposed to and not have the stuff I don't want. Does any one have recommendations? If you don't mind checking your prenatal vitamin and getting back to me I would greatly appreciate it! I am trying to have all of the following, and the most important part is that the B12 is NOT cyancobalamin!!
Vitamin A >15000 IU/day
Folic acid 400-800 mcg
Calcium 600 mg
B1 (Thiamin) 25mg
B2 (riboflavin) 25mg
B3 (niacin) 30mg
Biotin 300 mcg
Vit C 800mg
Vit D 1200 IU/day
Vit E 400 IU/day
Selenium 200 mcg
Magnesium 600 mg
You'll want to clear it with your OB/midwife but I LOVE the ALIVE Women's MAX Potency. Lots of good stuff in those. A little pricey, though. And hard to find.

Thorne Prenatals are great, and don't have the type of B12 you mention. You might want to look into ProCycle vitamins, too, recommended in the book Fertility, Cycles, & Nutrition, to get the high doses of A, etc. that you are looking for.
I just checked out New Chapter and it doesn't say where the B12 comes from... http://www.newchapter.com/multi-vitamins/perfect-prenatal#supplement-facts

Everything in Thorne prenatals looked great accept Chromium. There arent any studies that say whether the amount is too much. But the dosage for Thorne is way higher than what is recommended. Sad! I thought I had found the perfect prenatal!
Nobel prize winner, Linus Pauling wrote quite a bit on vitamin c, for example... Fascinating.
Personally, I take lots of separate vitamins, as there's no one pill big enough, lol.
Good luck! Taking vitamins is wonderful!
