Do you take specific supplements during your pregnancy? What about herbal remedies that are "must haves" for you during pregnancy/birth or postpartum?

Fish oil for your brain and babys. My pregnancy tea was alfalfa, raspberry leaf, red clover, and some other stuff...don't remember. I also took fenugreek after he was born for milk supply.

Floradix, my iron always dips a bit too low toward the end. Also I take a bit extra right after birth to bounce back easier from the normal blood loss. Magnesium supps helps with my excessive BH contractions in pregnancy. Also getting a naturally derived multi vitamin when I remember, and D3, and Flax oil.
