    Great! Love them, November 28, 2011

    I have done SOOOO much research on prenatal vitamins, and this is the one I keep coming back to! It is perfect, the nutrients are bioavailable(readily absorbed by the body), it does not contain dangerous ingredients, and contains lots of healthy ORGANIC fruit and veggie juices, sprouted grains, etc.
    My midwife was thrilled to hear that I was taking these, and she highly recommends them after doing lots of research herself.
    I love that it contains probiotics which are so good for you and baby. 3 pills a day means that the nutrients are better absorbed because you are not taking them all at once(although if I forget to take them during the day I will take them all at night and have not had any probs, but I prefer spacing them out).
    And, these did not give me morning sickness(or worsen what I was already feeling) like other brands I have taken.
    These are a little low in calcium, magnesium and vitamin k which you can easily get from a healthy diet. This vitamin does not contain phosphorus which is also easy to get from a truely good diet.
    I recommend raw goats milk for the phosphorus and calcium(it does have a little magnesium too. It is higher in all of these minerals than raw cows milk. Pasturized milk contains no phosphorus and its other nutrients are depleted because of the heat treatment, and they are not as easily absorbed. It also loses its beneficial enzymes), and raw sprouted sunflower seeds for calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus(dont eat raw nuts/seeds that are not sprouted due to the high amounts of phytic acid that block the absorbation of minerals). Both of these foods are also high in protein which is very important during pregnancy. You need A LOT of protein while pregnant! My midwife has me drink organic alfalfa tea for vit k, and raw cows milk might be better in the 3rd trimester due to its higher vitamin K content(so you wont bleed much after delivery). Also for more minerals I recommend making your own broths from free range animals (organic if possible)(bone broth is very easy to make!). It is especially important to consume lots of minerals if this is not your first child because pregnancy and breastfeeding deplete the mothers body of vitmains and especially minerals that it stores, so its best to be doing these things before conception.
    I also recommend a DHA supplement for pre-conception, pregnancy and lactation. I recommend fermented cod liver oil, and its best if paired with high-vitamin butter oil. Both these supplements help the body absorb and utilize minerals and can help the body rebuild tissue, bones and teeth, and they contain many beneficial enzymes including CoQ. Green Pasture is the brand.
    Pregnant women, I recommend the video The Business of Being Born (I bought it on Amazon, its on Netflix too I know), as well as the book Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth! CONGRATS!

    so satisfied with these vitamins, February 13, 2011

    For some reason, this was the first prenatal I stumbled upon. The folks at Whole Foods recommended these and the transition from my old multi to this prenatal was seemless. I sometimes break them apart and sprinkle in yogurt, on food, etc. I asked my nutritionist about these, showing him the label, and he said it was one of the most comprehensive/best he had ever seen.

    Best Vitamin I’ve Even Had!, June 23, 2012

    This review is from: Garden of Life Vitamin Code Raw Prenatal Multivitamins, 180 Count (Health and Beauty)

    I’ll start by saying I’m not pregnant. But I’ve taken many different multivitamins before I researched them and found advice that women should take prenatal vitamins even during child-bearing years. These where the first ones I tried and after a few weeks I felt fantastic! I’ve never felt that way on any other vitamin. It’s given me a noticeable energy increase and I haven’t had any negative side effects what so ever!

    I’m on my second bottle!
