  • I'm doing both in one shot!

    One-a-Day makes a prenatal vitamin... it's a two-part system... you have your prenatal, the pink pill, then a gel capsule that contains DHA/EPA... I feel GREAT with them!

  • You only need one or the other not both. Prenatal vitamins are regular one a day vitamins with the extra added folic acid and iron needed for pregnancy. Too much vitamins and minerals can be just as bad as not enough.
