What is the best brand of prenatal vitamin?

My doctor said they are all the same, so I don't see why there are so many different ones.

There is not one best brand available. You may have special circumstances that need a special kind. Your doctor or the pharmacist should be able to recommend one/

Many women have trouble digesting prenatals because they are very hard on your stomach. I used the all natural Vegan ones from Whole Foods. They had no lactose or gluten in them. They were much gentler on my stomach than other ones. They were more expensive but they were worth it to me. My daughter was born healthy!

As long as it contains Folic Acid it's the same. Vitamin are under the impression that no one knows there's no difference so they can get them to pay more.

The more expensive vitamins will contain DHA, good for your baby's brain development and sometimes a stool softener which helps towards the end of pregnancy to prevent hemroids.

There are many companies that offer vitamins to ensure that your body are getting what it needs to survive. Some brands have the same things so check the labels.

Like anything, everyone just wants to make money selling them. Compare the amount of each vitamin/mineral/etc. with recommended doses (search online or ask you doctor).
