Yes: I have checked out the ingredients and it looks like a very good quality multivitamin, better than most!
however, I am concerned that your eating habits are not good. Vitamins are not a substitute for a healthy diet. A good diet is crucial during pregnancy. Please start improving your diet now- limit sugars, artificial sweeteners & fried foods, have salads & more vegetables & fruits! Good luck! ...Read more

Are spring valley prenatal vitamins good for you if you no pregnant, ?

Are spring valley prenatal vitamins good for you if you no pregnant, ?

OK but far from best: Spring valley prenatals are probably better than nothing but I have reservations. The best thing about them is the low price. The things I don't like: it has synthetic vit e which is probably hazardous. It's loaded with chemicals like titanium dioxide, polyethylene glycol, gmo corn starch & artificial colors. If you can afford a better vitamin it's well worth it. See http://www. Multivitaminguide. Org. ...Read more

Are alive! Women's ultra potency vitamins safe to take during pregnancy?

Probably not: I would stay away from "ultra-potency" vitamins in pregnancy. One has to be careful about vitamins that are potentially harmful to your fetus, such as vitamin a. Your ob/gyn should be able to review theses doses with you and you should take the bottle in to them so they can review these doses. ...Read more

How good are pregnacare before conception vitamins, would they really increase chances of pregnancy?

How good are pregnacare before conception vitamins, would they really increase chances of pregnancy?

No, but do take them: In developed countries, there is adequate food for everyone except an unlucky few. Thus, people generally do not suffer malnutrition, which means vitamin pills would not increase the number of pregnancies in the population. That means a healthy woman who has a balanced diet would not get pregnant any faster by taking vitamin supplements. The pills do benefit her baby, IF she were to get pregnant. ...Read more

Is emergen-c (i.E. High doses of vitamin c) harmful for pregnant women? What to do if you feel like you're getting sick?

Very safe unless...: Emergen-c is very safe for pregnant women to take. The only precaution is that some say that high doses of vitamin c (6-10 grams a day for several days) might induce a miscarriage in the first 4 weeks of pregnancy, though this is unproven. However, once someone is past the first 4-6 weeks of pregnancy there is no hazard to taking high doses of vitamin c, though this could cause loose stools. ...Read more

Can u give a pregnant women pepto-bismol? My niece is 12 weeks along and has been vomition eveytime she eats. Not a lot comes up. She can't even keep down the flintstones vitamins today. Would it be safe for her to take pepto-bismol for a couple days till

Pepto-Bismol: Pepto-bismol is categorized as a "class c" drug in pregnancy and should only be taken if specifically instructed to do so by your doctor. Only "class a and class b" medications are safe to take during pregnancy without a doctor's consent.

5 safe things your niece can do for her pregnancy associated nausea are:
- ginger - such as ginger tea or ginger ale
- saltine crackers - they absorb stomach acid and can help nausea
- eat small amounts of food frequently - eating too much food at once can trigger vomiting
- avoid odors that make you nauseous
- acupressure bands - there is a pressure point on the wrist that can alleviate nausea that an acupressure wrist band can trigger. ...Read more
