Nutritional experts recommend taking the prenatal around 3 months before starting to try for a family and for the duration of a pregnancy. This is because it takes a while to reach a new nutritional status.
It's crucial to reach these nutrient levels before becoming pregnant because the initial weeks of a baby's life is critical. It's important that your body is ready to support the baby!
We recommend taking the prenatal twice a day (preferably after a meal) so that your body can maintain the optimum level of each ingredient in the multivitamin throughout the 24 hour period.
However, it's safe to take two prenatal capsules at the same time as our prenatal is relatively gentle on the tummy. Some people may get an upset stomach after taking two capsules at the same time, so it is best to monitor how your body responds if you choose to do so.
