Nature made is one. Just eating right is a good start, but you are right that prenatal vitamins are probably a good idea, because pregnant and lactating women need more of some nutrients, like calcium, vitamin b12, folate (folic acid) and iron. And getting enough folate (folic acid) (400-800 mcg daily) is important before you get pregnant, to reduce the risk of spinal cord defects in the baby.
