5 Prenatal Supplements for Mums-to-Be

Pregnancy can be exciting and anxiety-inducing in equal measure; from the conception stage through to breastfeeding and beyond, you’ll want to make sure you’re doing the best for yours and your baby’s health.


It’s important to ensure you’re eating a healthy, balanced diet throughout your pregnancy, and to check in with your doctor or midwife regularly to see if there’s anything you should be avoiding or adding into your routine to support your individual health needs.


Prenatal supplements can also help you to make sure you’re getting essential vitamins and minerals for you and your baby, including:


  • Folic acid – a B vitamin that can provide vital support for foetal brain and spine development.
  • Vitamin D – provides essential support to bone health during pregnancy and beyond.

1. Vitamin Code Raw Prenatal Capsules


Taking multivitamins before you conceive, throughout your pregnancy and during lactation can help to make sure you and your little one are both getting the vitamins and minerals you need.


Our Vitamin Code Raw Prenatal Capsules contain both folate and vitamin D, as well as a blend of antioxidants, enzymes and lactic bacteria.



This wholefood multivitamin is made using a blend of 20 powdered raw and organically grown fruits and vegetables to provide nutritional support for both mother and baby.

2. Organics Prenatal Once Daily Tablets


Folate is known for its role in contributing to maternal tissue growth during pregnancy, and you’ll find 600mcg of this essential prenatal vitamin in each of our Organics Prenatal Once Daily Tablets.



Each capsule also contains a blend of 19 vitamins and minerals, as well as 18mg of plant-based iron to help to boost your iron intake.


This formula is also designed to support your energy levels during pregnancy, thanks to a blend of vitamins B2, B3, B5, B6 and B12, which can contribute to reducing feelings of tiredness and fatigue.

3. Organics Prenatal Multi Tablets


Our Organics Prenatal Multi Tablets also contain 600mcg of folate per capsule, as well as 800IU of vegan vitamin D3.


These tasty wholefood berry-flavoured chews are made with a blend of nine different organic whole foods, including organic blueberries, broccoli, carrot, mushroom, lemon, strawberry and green capsicum.

4. Microbiome Once Daily Prenatal Capsules


It’s also important to continue to look after your gut health during pregnancy, and you’ll find 16 different strains of live bacteria to support this in our Microbiome Once Daily Prenatal Capsules.



These capsules are gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, vegetarian and Non-GMO Project Verified, and are designed to be taken through pregnancy and the lactation stage to support both mother and baby.

5. Oceans MOM Prenatal DHA Omega-3 Softgels


You should also be mindful of your intake of omega-3 fatty acids during pregnancy, as omega-3 can play a key role in supporting foetal development and support your body at a time when it’s under extra strain.


With 365mg of omega-3s per softgel (made up of 350mg of DHA and 15mg of EPA), our Oceans MOM Prenatal DHA Omega-3 Softgels contain a distilled blend of fish oil in an easy-to-chew strawberry-flavoured softgel.



Some vitamin supplements are suitable for small children, so you can continue to support your child’s health as they grow and develop. Find out which vitamins children should be taking and when here:
