Description

We have designed our own supplement formula to suit your stage of pregnancy. You receive a four week supply in a handy dispenser with a single tablet to take each day.

Folic Acid (or vitamin B9) is extremely important for the development of a healthy foetus, as it can significantly reduce neural tube defects (NTDs), such as spina bifida. It is essential to take in the early stages of pregnancy (up to 12 weeks) this is why we have included the recommended dose (400mcg) up to this point in our essential supplements.

It’s highly recommended that mums-to-be take some form of iron supplements during their pregnancy. This has been proven to increase the mums haemoglobin levels and halves the risk of the mother becoming anaemic during their pregnancy. It also reduces the risk of low birth weight by up to 19%! This is why we have included the recommended daily does (27mg) of iron in our essential supplements.

During the summer you can get most of your daily intake of Vitamin D through the sun. However, this changes during the winter and during pregnancy. Therefore our supplements provide the recommended dose (10mcg) per day to aid in calcium production for both you and your baby.

During pregnancy your baby needs zinc for cell growth and for the production and functioning of DNA. This can increase from your normal intake of  zinc by over a half. Therefore our essential formula supplements include the daily recommended dose (12mg) of zinc, this helps promote healthy cell growth to help support your baby’s immune system.
