You can get a good all in one like pregnacare so it's lots of prenatal vitamins and you won't feel like you're going to rattle with a million different tablets. I personally didn't find out I was pg with DC till I was eight weeks and he was fine with just folic acid from then. It's better to be sooner obviously.
Congratulations on the baby xxx send me some luck too xxx
I used the pregnancy vitamins from Sainsbury's. They're £5 for 30 and have all the safe vitamins and some fish oil thing. They'd sold out the other day so I got some Pregnacare instead. Makes me feel better when I'm eating chocolate cake.
You can buy from nhs folic acid/vitamin c/vitamin d combination tablets. You can get a box with 56 for £1. I don't qualify for the healthy start coupons but I could still buy them. You can find a list of retailers here: www.healthystart.nhs.uk/
What confuses me is that they suggest a combination tablet for the wholre pregnancy but I have read that we should take folic acid only for 12 weeks, not for the whole pregnancy and whilre breastfeeding.
alex in my area (Lewisham) they seem to just give them out, even if you don't qualify - worth checking. Not sure if it's a policy but the midwife just directed me to the pharmacy to collect even though I'm not eligible.
