In brief: Why?

Why don't you want to take 2 pills at a time? Prenatal vitamins are proven to significantly reduce the incidence of birth defects when taken in early pregnancy, so if you have any chance of becoming pregnant please do yourself & future baby a favor by taking a prenatal.
If you are to stop one, stop maca, which is not essential, but i don't see any reason to not take both.

In brief: Don't stop prenatals

If you're pregnant, you need to take prenatal vitamins, whatever else you're taking.
You and your baby need the extra vitamins far more than you need an herbal supplement.
