Just like with most other expectant mothers, my nutrition both pre- and postnatal is vital to me. I began reading a lot of about the nutritional requirements that are needed for a healthy pregnancy. I was taking most of the vitamins needed daily such as Iron, DHA, and B12, so I just needed to add a few things in to my diet that would help me out a just a bit.
I began a vegan diet and was reading a vegan survival guide that stated I needed at least 70g of Iron, calcium, Folate, omega-3 fatty acids, B12, and zinc as well as some other needed aspects of pregnancy health. Once I had all of this information, I began to search for the perfect prenatal vitamin that would work just for me without making me too sick. I talked with my obstetrician and she recommended MegaFood – Baby & Me. She stated that it would have everything I would need even being a vegan.

I am very glad that my obstetrician introduced me to Baby & Me. It is made with whole foods not that synthetic stuff and even though the dose is pretty large, it recommends 4 pills daily. And it tends to be a bit more expensive than I would have expected but it is worth the money. The one thing that you will notice first hand is that they taste horrible, so take them with a full glass of water. You can take them on an empty stomach, because they are all natural, they won’t make you nauseous at all. Once you get past the flavor, you will notice they are a breeze to take and they work great.
Since it is made from all organic herbs and foods, the ingredients are non-GMO and completely kosher, so if you have religious biases against certain things, these will work great for you as well. It has digestive enzymes that makes it easier to swallow and even stomach and it is tested to be free of pesticides, dairy, herbicides, soy, and gluten. The facilities that they come from are even FDA registered.
MegaFood – Baby & Me has plenty of iodine, copper and zinc ration and work really well if you have to take any type of daily medications.
Let’s be honest, eating healthy all the time can be hard, especially if you are vegan, because we often are missing out on the right types of vitamins that come from certain foods. So being a pregnant vegan can be a real hit or miss type of issues. Choosing the right prenatal for me was a really difficult choice, but I am glad that I decided to go with MegaFood – Baby & Me. I haven’t been sick, I haven’t had issues taking it and the one issue that I found is the flavor of the pill, which I really couldn’t stand but I no longer really have an issue with. MegaFood – Baby & Me is a great choice for anyone. A cheaper but really great option you might like to consider is Spring Valley Prenatal Vitamins. Check out my Spring Valley Prenatal Vitamins review.
