Dh and I have just started TTC grin and I am up to my ears in vitamin advice!
AIBU to wonder if the own brand folic acid in the supermarket for £1.50 is probably as good as the £13 Pregnacare next to it? Am I depriving my DC before they are even conceived?? blush
What did you all do??
Please advise!

I use Asda's Pregnancy vitamins. Used them with DD and she's fine. 2 packs for £4. smile

Sorry but I only take solgar prenatal nutrients, I react with severe morning sickness type symptoms if I use any type of synthetic folic acid at all. Wish i'd known 1st time round as I thought I was suffering from morning sickness right through my pregnancy. sad

I have been told that up to 50% of the population have a reaction to synthetic vitamins ie not taken from a food source and that they are not absorbed as well as those which are derived from natural sources.

It's entirely your choice, just be aware that if you are not feeling good they may be a factor...
