  • I tried a bunch of different brands, they all made me sick. I talked to my doc about it and she said to take them at night. It worked, I didn't notice them making me sick.

  • I tried different kinds, different times of the day, with various foods or lack of, and could not take anything. So I just didn't take them. My kids that I didn't take them with are just fine, and my midwife had no real problem with me not taking them.

  • I just take regular vitamins. Every pre-natal vitamin ever prescribed to me made me violently ill.

  • I got sick with all the ones I tried and that the dr recommended. So he said itd be ok if I took flinstones or gummies. I just had to double up on them.

  • My sister and a cousin both had bad reactions to prenatals. Both of their OB's told them to take 2 Flinstone with Iron each day instead.
