A mother or a mother to be trying to conceive, you have an obligation to take a step back from doing all ‘everything in life’, and take care of yourself.
Whether you are a mother, pregnant, or trying, you need to make sure you’re always taking care of your health and well-being too, otherwise it can have a huge negative effect on you and your conception planes.
I speak from experience when I say that….
As a mother, there are a lot of jobs you have and things you have to get done everyday… and even as I write this, it’s an understatement.
Everything from changing diapers, to taking care of babies, and even balancing a social life, a happy relationship, and work on top of it…
My head hurts just thinking about it!
So for today, I want to focus on our health a little bit, and some necessary steps you should be taking ahead of time, during, and after your pregnancy to take care of yourself and your baby to be. We are not only going to focus on prenatal vitamins and the importance of them, but also the importance of selecting organic and natural prenatal vitamins you can use for a healthy pregnancy. So without further ado, let’s begin!
Best PreNatal Vitamins
For Pre & Post Natal Care
1 ♥ Garden of Life Organic Prenatal Gives Me Life
If you’re a regular reader on my blog, you know that I went through a very difficult infertility period for several years where I lost a ton of weight and was not healthy in any way.
Both in my mind and body.
During that time, I was prescribed by the doctor to take prenatal vitamins in order to give myself a higher chance to conceive and get myself into a healthier state, as I was very underweight. I can tell you that since I started taking them, they have definitely made me feel much healthier.
I had more energy..
I felt better on the inside…
and I just had a much better attitude about everything.
For that reason, I would strongly recommend to any mama trying to conceive or trying to get back into a health state of being to take these beautiful vitamins.
Garden of Life truly brings life back into yours, and can greatly assist you in creating another!
And if you want more healthy tips and tricks, taking your prenatal vitamins, won’t do the wonders by themselves, you need to combine them with a healthy diet and lifestyle. You should definitely check out this beautiful momma blog called CountryPeony which has tons of healthy and delicious recipes that will help you get back into a health state if are in a bad spot like I was!
2 ♥ Mama Bird Organic Prenatal – Mama Bird Never Disappoints
Mama Bird has always been one of my favorite brands to use after trying their incredible stretch mark creams (that you can read more about on my post here).
But they also have an incredible prenatal vitamin that I absolutely love!
This is a great prenatal vitamin to take if others have caused you nausea (as they are prone to do). These organic prenatal vitamins are very gentle and don’t make me ever feel sick.
If anything, it makes me feel the complete opposite!
It also gives you about the same amount of energy boost as a cup of coffee does!
Praise the heavens…which is definitely a necessity if you already have wild and crazy babies running around! Mama Bird Organics is mama’s number 1!
3 ♥ Rainbow Light Organic Prenatal – Like A Rainbow In Your Tummy!
Taken and recommended to me by my sister on her pregnancy journey, she praises these like no other!
My sister is currently going through her own infertility period (bless her heart), and has taken prenatal pill after prenatal pill to assist her along the way and they haven’t done anything but make her feel sick.
But taking Rainbow Light, she says truly stands out because these are the first organic ones she used, and she truly feels better after taking them and like she is on the right back to her pregnancy.
She told me, and I quote,
“It isn’t like taking a pill or taking medicine, it’s just like having a yummy and nutritious snack throughout the day that just makes you feel good.”
Made with only natural ingredients, this little baby is a great addition to your health and pregnancy journey (and let’s pray my little sissy can have her own little bundle soon too!).
4 ♥ Country Life Organic Prenatal – My Forbidden Love
Okay, can I just praise this brand for a few seconds?
These are probably the absolute best prenatal vitamins I’ve ever taken (no, seriously!). If you regularly take prenatal vitamins, you’ll know what I mean when I talk about that terrible pill after-taste and how disgusting it is, or how they can get stuck in your throat and begin to dissolve with terrible taste!
But honestly, these vitamins are made from real fruits and vegetables, and have a wonderful taste that goes alongside them!
I find myself looking forward to taking them on a daily basis because they are delicious, make me feel so much stronger, and make my skin glow! It’s truly just like having a snack of health foods. They don’t remotely taste anything like most prenatal pills, and that’s what makes it so incredible!
So if you’re looking for a good and effective brand to help you out, give Country Life a try!
And like I mentioned above, taking pre-natal vitamins isn’t going to make you ‘healthy’. They should only be consumed along with a healthy and nutrient dense diet. A blog you can also check out, Mapleandthyme uses real food to help you feel good and make you healthy. The author, Amanda, has delicious looking recipes, one in-particular that I cannot wait to try is her Cilantro Lime Chicken Tacos and I strongly suggest you have a look at her precious blog and try some too!
5 ♥ SmartyPants Organic Prenatal Is The Smart Choice
SmartyPants Organic is the smart way to go! I’m going to be honest, I had never actually heard of these prenatal pills until after my pregnancies when I wasn’t taking pills anymore, so I haven’t gotten to try them myself.
However, based on all these incredible recommendations and 5 star reviews online, I would say they are definitely worth the money.
The incredible thing about this specific one is that it has folate and methlyfolate that aid specifically in fetal development, which will help your baby get all the proper nutrients it needs.
So if you’re a little on the skinny side or are lacking some nutrition and have just started your pregnancy journey, these pills are for you! Great for digestive health and incredible for bone support, it’s no wonder so many mama’s love this brand!
Overall there are plenty of prenatal vitamins options on the market, but it’s always best to go with organic and natural that will make you feel good, like any mentioned above. No matter where you are in your motherhood journey, prenatal vitamins are always a great boost of health you and for your healthy baby.
