Our Five Favourite Organic Prenatal Vitamins
What we put in our bodies is always incredibly important but even more so when we are sharing our body with another. In this editorial REV editor and mama-to-be, Taylor, shares with us five of her favourite prenatal vitamins. All of which are safe for mama, baby, and the planet!
Garden of Life
In my early days of pregnancy, before the morning sickness kicked in, normal vitamins were perfectly easy for me to get down. Once the nausea hit and everything made me feel sick, I felt so grateful for Garden of Life’s chewable prenatal multi vitamin. They were so easy to get down and actually incredibly tasty – at a time when nothing was! Still from time to time, I go back to these gummy vitamins when my stomach is acting up a bit. I think that these vitamins are a must for everyone’s first trimester.
This UK based company is another one of my favourite go-to wellness brands. For months leading up to my pregnancy both my husband and I took their fertility vitamins religiously. Their food-grown pregnancy vitamin is such a wonderful choice when looking for a prenatal vitamin, because it is formulated with the best ingredients to ensure you are getting a blend of vitamins and minerals. It is even formulated to help ease nausea, restore energy, and balance hormones – while providing your baby with support to develop and grow! A major plus is that the brand offers a bigger refill bag, so you can top up your jar.
Ritual’s entire line of supplements are amazing, as each formula is made natural and non-gmo ingredients. The brand’s essential prenatal includes 12 nutrients that prep the body for pregnancy and supports the body throughout pregnancy. What make’s this prenatal so unique is that it is created with a delayed-release capsule design, so that it dissolves in the small intestine, which is an ideal place to absorb nutrients. I also love their formula, because you only have to take two a day, instead of the usual four!
Certified B Corp, Pure Synergy’s range is certified organic, non-gmo, gluten free, and dairy free. The brand’s Prenatal Vitamin can be used before conception, during pregnancy, and during breastfeeding to continuously support your body and your babies development. This formula is also very gentle on the stomach, making it a great choice if you’ve been experiencing any nausea or stomach sensitivity. Pure Synergy is completely transparent about what is in their supplements and the exact reasons why – so you know the benefits from every ingredient you are taking!
Rainbow Light’s high potency Prenatal Multivitamin is just one pill a day, making it just so easy! The brand’s innovative formula is made with vitamins and minerals to fuel the body at a cellular level, promote immunity, brain and bone health, and foster baby’s development from conception all the way to nursing. It is made with all organic fruits and vegetables, probiotics, and enzymes – so you don’t need to take too many other pills alongside this one! I’ve been taking Rainbow Light’s Prenatal DHA Omega-3 Fish Oil since I found out I was pregnant. DHA is super important while pregnant because it promotes baby’s brain development and eye health, while supporting my cardiovascular health. The brand only uses wild and sustainably sourced fish too. You can of course find great vegan alternatives out there!
