Q&A: Prenatal & Postnatal
What is in a prenatal vitamin?
Goodness for mom and baby! New Chapter’s Perfect Prenatal supplement contains Folic Acid (including Methylfolate, the most active form), Iron, Iodine, Calcium, and other important vitamins and minerals. These help nurture your body while providing a healthy environment for your baby to grow and develop. For example, Calcium is helpful for both mom and baby to support bone growth. Iron also supports both mom and baby by helping carry oxygen through the blood.
Let’s talk when to take prenatal vitamins.
It's recommended to start taking prenatal vitamins before conception. Wondering why? It’s because that first month of pregnancy, before many moms-to-be even know they're pregnant, is crucial to the baby's development. The baby's neural tube (which becomes the brain and spinal cord) develops during this first month. So, if you’re planning to be pregnant, it’s a good idea to start your daily regimen of valuable prenatal vitamins including Folic Acid.
Why are postnatal vitamins important?
New Chapter postnatal vitamins include Vitamin D3, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin B12—essentials to keep both mom and baby healthy. While some doctors recommend women continue taking their prenatal vitamin after the baby is born, postnatal supplements have added nutrients to support new moms, whether or not you’re breastfeeding. Plus, our postnatal vitamins help support energy and proper immune system function. That’s important for busy new moms!
What vitamins should I take while breastfeeding?
Our postnatal supplement has you covered! Vitamin D3, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, and Iron are essential vitamins for mom and baby while breastfeeding. Look for a prenatal or postnatal multivitamin that delivers these vitamins, like New Chapter Perfect Postnatal. They help with red blood cell production, energy, and more. Plus, they include targeted herbal blends, too.
