I am thinking about switching from my STUARTS brand prenatal to this one because it seems better, anyone use this brand?

We eliminate soy/dairy and it seems to be free of those.

I used it for awhile until my daughter sensitized to the corn in it.
At this point I MUCH prefer my nutrient tea. I can feel it working.

My herbalist recommends drinking an herbal infusion to get your nutrients rather than taking pills. Its really worked out well for me. Its composed of 1 cup nettles, 1 cup comfrey leaf, 1 cup oatstraw and 2 cups red clover blossoms. When pregnant, the clover should be replaced with red raspberry leaf. I mix it all in a one gallon jar and fill with boiled water. Let steep for 4-10 hours, strain, and drink a quart a day. And chickweed tincture 3x daily improves absorption.

I don't know anything about that prenatal... but I would be curious to know what the vitamin E is derived from if not soy.

Huh. I'm glad she asked!
I totally have to ask my ND if he carries any/all of those.
Where do you get yours? A HFS?
