I love Quest vitamins and have been using them for years. After having done a lot of research, I just found that, for me, these were the best vitamins out there. I like amount of vitamins and minerals in their vitamins compared to other brands and while yes, you do have to take 3 of these prenatal vitamins per day spaced out, following meals, the reasoning behind that is that you will absorb more of the vitamins and minerals for your baby this way. With conventional one a day vitamins you end up peeing out most of the vitamins and minerals that your body doesn't need or store so your body doesn't absorb as much. The other thing that Mum's to be might find is that if you are feeling nauseous with your pregnancy taking a less potent vitamin throughout the day instead of one strong potent one may prevent any nausea you might feel taking vitamins. I highly recommend these prenatal vitamins, I took them with my first pregnancy and am taking them again with this one.

I was very disappointed to learn, just as I was about to start taking these, that you have to take 3 PER DAY, and they expect you to take those 3 pills spaced out throughout the day, all after you've eaten! I found this to be, not only impossible for me, but also a HUGE ripoff!
I used the bottle of these, then switched to the Jamieson All Natural pre-natals, for which you only have to take 1 per day, and I take them at night so I can ensure that I'm not taking them on an empty stomach.

As someone without any dietary restrictions or nausea issues I didn't find this vitamin worth the cost. I found it annoying to have to take 3 capsules a day which meant one bottle lasted just over one month. I bought it because it's "natural" and at about the same price point for other conventional prenatal vitamins but really it's 3 times more expensive. Didn't buy again simply because of the cost. Jameson prenatals work fine for me.
