Iron and folate: The only problem with gummy vitamins is that most of them do not contain iron which is critical during pregnancy. A pregnancy multivitamin that contains Iron, and folate, is important to start before becoming pregnant so that your health will be optimal when you get pregnant. Regular Exercise, Rest and hydration is also important before and during pregnancy.
