As far as I'm aware its entirely up to yourself if you want to take a pregnancy vitamin - I took folic acid up to 13 weeks and then moved on to Santogen which would be similar to pregnacare for the duration and still taking it. Your health care provided may advise you to take iron tablets at some stage but if your taking pregnacare or the like then there is iron in that - I think its a wise choice for the development of baby!!!!

I started Pregnacare at 16 weeks following the advise of the consultant. I think it's good to take it too. I would go with that for the moment anyway.

Hi all, My doctor put me on pregnacare when i went in for the first visit (@ Wk 4), she said it was better - an all round supplement. She told me folic acid was no longer needed then coz its in the pregnacare. I suppose every GP will differ but i don't think there is any harm in it anyhow. Best of luck :o)ll

I'm taking Sanatogen pro-natal and omega 3 supplements. Have been a bit erratic at taking them lately and feeling wrecked, so trying to remember to have them every day again!
