I take the centrum pregnancy vitamins, it contains quite a bit in them 👍🏻 though my midwife says you don't need to spend a fortune on the "named" brands, for example Boots own are just as good smile

That's the 2 they advise to supplement (folic acid/vitamin d)

Nope, that's the only 2 that the NHS advise smile

But they cost a fortune, are huge, make some people sick and have been shown to just be marketing hype- most people don't need most of what's in them

You're taking what's recommended, with actual scientific evidence to back it up

They've worked for me and lots of other mums i know. I've had zero sickness and i love them. Jeez can't have a preference on here hmm

Yeah just stick to those two- no evidence that your body needs anything in addition to this and the multivitamins for pregnancy are extortionately expensive!!

My GP and Midwife recommended Pregnacare so I did take them for the first 6 months or so. Switched to Seven Seas after as they were cheaper.

I was initially taking just the healthy start vitamins given to me by the midwife (folic acid and vitd, everyone gets them here). Midwife recommended a multivitamin when my bloods came back because i was slightly low in iron but not so low it needed iron tablets. I just took pregnacare my sister had leftover.
