One Shake a Day

To get all your prenatal vitamins

What should I look for in a prenatal vitamin?

What's in my Mommi shake?

There are many over-the-counter prenatal vitamins to choose from. Your doctor may have a specific recommendation based on your individual needs. If not, the Mayo Clinic suggests choosing a vitamin which contains the following:

  • Folic acid 400-800 micrograms
  • Calcium 250 milligrams
  • Iron 30 milligrams
  • Vitamin C 50 milligrams
  • Copper 2 milligrams
  • Vitamin B6 2 milligrams
  • Vitamin D 400 international units

Prenatal vitamins come in various forms: pill, capsule, and liquid. Prenatal vitamins are generally taken once a day though that also depends on which vitamin you are taking.  Helpful hint: many women have an aversion to taking a prenatal vitamin pill (nicknamed horse pill) because of the aftertaste and the difficulty swallowing it.  Liquid prenatal vitamins tend to be easy to take and digest more quickly.
