  • Brand doesn't matter.
    If multi-vitamins don't upset your tummy, any prenatal vitamin will be fine.
    If they do upset your tummy, try Centrum Children's Chewables. The content is nearlly identical to the most popular prenatal vitamins.

    Remember, you need to start taking the folic acid several weeks BEFORE you are pregnant. If you are low on folic acid there is a small chance that the baby will have spinal chord problems and these problems develop in the first few weeks - before you even know you are pregnant.
