Folic acid, iron, and zinc are needed in greater amounts and these are the nutrients most likely to be deficient in pregnant women.
Supplementing with a multivitamin is critical during the pregnancy since it is often difficult to ensure proper nutrient levels through diet alone. Additionally, it is important to continue supplementing while breast-feeding to provide the baby with important nutrients.
Jamieson’s Prenatal contains a unique complex of 33 vitamins, minerals and nutrients specially designed for the support of pregnant and breast-feeding women. It contains 1 mg of folic acid for the prevention of neural tube defects, 28 mg of chelated iron for red blood cell expansion in both the mother and fetus and 20 mg of zinc to prevent malformations and low birth weight in the developing fetus.
Prenatal is prepared in a natural base of acerolacherry, rosehips and bioflavonoids.

I give this product 5/5 not because there are not more natural options but because this product is an amazing value for quality. It has very little additives compared to other prenatals, it is delicate on the stomach and is fairly easy to swallow. It was also recommended by the dietician as a more natural option the other brands.
