Medications and supplements in pregnancy
Our doctors recommend a daily prenatal vitamin to fill in nutritional gaps.
Most prenatal vitamins are similar but a good prenatal vitamin needs to contain at least the following:
- 400-800mcg of Folic Acid
- 30 mg of iron
- 1000mg of Calcium
- 600 IU of Vitamin D

Some herbal products can be unsafe during pregnancy. Always check with your healthcare provider before using any herbal remedies.
