Pregnancy Supplements


Until recently, the main supplements recommended for pregnancy were folic acid and iron. Increased blood volume and the developing placenta place large demands on iron stores, and maternal folic acid (ideally taken before conception) helps prevent spina bifida and other neural tube defects.

 Today however, there are any number of specialist multivitamin and mineral preparations designed for pregnancy and breastfeeding, as well as conception.

 The NHMRC (National Health and Medical Research Council) recommends the following key nutrients for pregnant women:

  •          Iron
  •          Folic acid
  •          Iodine
  •          Vitamin D
  •          Calcium
  •          Vitamin B12
  •          Omega 3 fatty acids
