As mamas, we always want to give our babies our all—and that begins during pregnancy! My second pregnancy hit me much harder than my first, and when I told my midwife I was experiencing extreme exhaustion, she recommended adding an iron supplement to meet my daily nutrition needs.
Cue my introduction to MegaFood, a vitamin and supplement company that works with trusted partners to create premium products held to incredibly high quality standards. Not only did their iron supplements give me a much-needed boost while my body worked at growing my baby, but I also found top-notch nutrition support from other products in their line.
Be sure to talk to your health care provider before starting any vitamins or supplements.
Here are a few favorites for new and pregnant mothers:
AKA, the iron-building supplement that saved my energy levels postpartum. Safe for menstruating women, teenage girls, pregnant women, vegans, athletes and recent blood donors, this top-selling product boosts iron levels.* Made with whole foods like beets and organic oranges, it also includes folic acid and B12 to help maintain healthy red blood cell production.* You can even take it on an empty stomach with minimal unpleasant side effects like nausea and constipation. 🙌🏽
These supplements are made from real foods—like broccoli, carrots and oranges—with added nutrients to deliver a powerful combination of iron, vitamins B12, B6, and D3, choline and methylated folate to support optimal nutrition for you and your developing baby.* Simply take two tablets a day (even on an empty stomach) and feel good about how you're nourishing your body and your baby.
This innovative supplement is designed to support your nutritional needs while also supporting healthy brain development for your baby during pregnancy and during breastfeeding.* The unique liquid formula uses plant-based DHA from algae and slow-release choline beadlets to deliver nutrients over time.
Nutritional needs change if you breastfeed, and this supplement was designed to support you with everything you're dishing out. Each tablet contains optimal levels of key vitamins C, D3 and E, plus minerals like iodine and chromium. Moringa leaf is also added to help support milk production.*
Pregnancy is beautiful. Pregnancy nausea? Not so much. But I often found that nausea relief pops and candies left me feeling queasier than ever. Not so with these soft chews that taste like honey, lemon and ginger. Easy to pop as needed, these chews combine vitamin B6 with farm-fresh organic ginger root to ease morning sickness, nausea and even occasional indigestion with no added colors or artificial flavors.*
Studies have shown that taking probiotics during pregnancy (specifically the HN001 strain of Lactobacillus rhamnosus) can help support your baby's future immunity—while mamas benefit from healthier digestive functions and nutrient absorption.* For better results, it's recommended to store these in the fridge or freezer and then take them out to consume with meals.
Available late December
Support and maintain strong bones throughout pregnancy and beyond with this doctor-formulated supplement featuring vitamins C, D, K and K2 along with calcium and magnesium.* While these tablets are gentle on your stomach, it's recommended to take them with food for best results.
