If you have ever been, are or are planning to become pregnant, then you know for certain one of the best things to have in your baby arsenal is prenatal vitamins. It can be really hard to choose the right one and depending on your own health, the right one can be hard to find on your own. I tend to like things to be more organic and not so many chemicals as natural type of things. I have a friend who is a vegetarian and she recommended that I try this when I was pregnant with my first child.

This Prenatal vitamin has everything you need, except it doesn’t contain DHA, which I have noticed comes in a lot of other prenatal vitamins. I just wanted something that would be easy on my stomach, and not full of harsh chemicals. What makes these prenatals better than others is the fact that it contains no fillers or binders, its dairy and gluten free, as well as the fact that is untreated, unadulterated and uncooked. That made me wonder why should I go raw? The whole reason is that when you eat any type of raw foods, the nutrients stay as well as the probiotics and enzymes that are normally destroyed when they are cooked. I was told that folic acid is the best thing, until I spoke to my doctor who stated while folic acid is good, if it’s found in natural foods, the best in a prenatal vitamin is actually Folate. The RAW Prenatal contains that and more.
What this prenatal vitamin offers that others do not, is the ginger. Ginger is a natural relief for morning sickness, which I had constantly. When I first got these, I noticed that you could really taste the ginger when they are taken. It isn’t a flavor that I enjoy at all and the pills are larger than I actually expected as well. When I took these, I noticed that I wasn’t as tired, and everything about this vitamin helped to make my pregnancy so much easier. Let’s talk about the pro’s and con’s.
- All the vitamins needed
- Contains ginger which eases morning sickness
- Easy on the stomach
- All natural
- These pills are bit on the bigger side
- The ginger taste
- No DHA
Overall, this is a great prenatal for anyone. The fact that it is made all natural and it doesn’t contain all of the harsh chemicals that normally make your stomach turn, is a definite plus in my book. I also loved the fact that it was easier to take then any other vitamin and it helped get rid of my morning sickness, even though there is that nasty ginger taste, it does get easier to deal with as time goes on. I can honestly say that Vitamin Code RAW Prenatal Vitamin by Garden of Life is one thing that I will recommend and even use again myself.
