Highly recommended: Congratulations! It is not only safe to take DHA supplements during pregnancy but highly recommended, as DHA is important for the formation of your baby's brains and eyes. Prenatal vitamins are helpful too, but each does not reduce need for the other. Look for DHA that's purified and guaranteed to be free of mercury. Best brand include Carlson, Nordic Naturals, Barlean's and Life Extension.
