I can't answer which prenatals are the best, but I'm taking Thorne Pharmaceuticals Basic Prenatal that are supposed to be really good. I'm taking a smaller dose and not every single day just because I don't want to overdo it on any particular vitamin or mineral, since I'm also, you know, eating I'm also taking fish oil (specially formulated for preggies).

I would usually go with Garden of Life RAW since they use very high quality ingredients. They are more expensive, but worth it. And for those who have difficulty swallowing pills, you can dump out the powder and take it in food or drink if you prefer, since they are powdered vitamins. I have also used Source Naturals for the same reason, and Solgar is good when it comes to individual vitamins. Their multivitamins smell really gross, so I don't take them. I did not know that New Chapter was bought by J&J! Thanks for that info!

I had stopped using NC because they disappeared for about two months: they were sold out on Amazon and I could not find them in any stores such as Vitamin Shoppe. Since I could find Garden of Life, I switched to them, and like their vitamins better anyway. Now I am really glad that I switched.

I am a prenatal and postnatal massage therapist serving the New Jersey and New York City area. I am also a certified pediatric massage therapist. I am currently studying to become a childbirth educator and breastfeeding counselor, as well as a certified infant massage teacher. These are valuable services that I can provide to pregnant women in my area.

Another Shaklee user here, too. I've done Rainbow Light in the past as well, but with this Shaklee-supported pregnancy, it was the first time that I totally skipped morning sickness. Previously, it had gotten worse each time. I was amazed when I skipped it and I credit the Shaklee vitamins.

I tried some brands, for Brainstrong prenatal, it contains one pill for prenatal vitas, one for DHA.
And I found the best prenatal vita should be base on food, like, Garden of Life Prenatal, new product in May 2014, but you have to choose another for prenatal DHA, such as Nordic Natural Prenatal DHA.
Hope you may learn to know how to choose the best prenatal vitamins and DHA from here.

I love my prenatal vitamin. It's Joli Mere and I been taking it for 5 months now. I am going to give birth to my baby boy in 2 months. I don;t have any stretch marks any where on my body and my skin feels wonderful. My doctor says my blood tests are all showing that my baby and me are in perfect health and he says that my prenatal vitamins are doing a great job to supply me with all my nutrion. I am really really happy with Joli Mere vitamins and I am blessed that I found them.
