Pregnacare Plus dual pack provides the original fully comprehensive multivitamin tablet, which delivers the essential nutrients for pregnancy including the recommended level of 400mcg folic acid and 10 mcg vitamin D as advised by the UK Department of Health D during pregnancy and breast-feeding, plus an additional Omega-3 capsule to provide a rich source of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) which contributes to normal brain and eye development of the foetus**.
Important: Some pregnancy formulas do not include the exact 10 mcg vitamin D, as advised by the UK Department of Health during pregnancy and breast-feeding.
Pregnacare Plus has been specially developed so that mothers-to-be can safeguard their extra dietary requirements, without confusion about which supplements to take.
Pregnacare Plus Provides
28 x Pregnacare multi-nutrient tablets with 400mcg Folic Acid
Pregnacare Tablets contain a careful formulation of 19 nutrients important for both mother and baby. Pregnacare has been carefully developed by experts so that all ingredient levels are within safe levels for pregnancy and are moderate rather than excessive. These include vitamin B12, plus vitamin D and folic acid at the exact level recommended for the development of the unborn baby. Supplemental folic acid intake increases maternal folate status†. Low maternal folate status is a risk factor in the development of neural tube defects in the developing foetus.
28 x Omega-3 capsules with 300mg DHA
The capsules contain high purity fish oil, which are a rich source of the important Omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA. DHA is especially important during pregnancy as it contributes to normal brain and eye development of the foetus**.
One Pregnacare Omega-3 capsule per day provides 300 mg DHA, the exact level recommended by international experts in lipid nutrition*** for pregnant and lactating women, plus 60mg EPA.
The Pregnacare Plus Omega 3 capsule contains the purest pharmaceutical grade fish oil, certified for sustainability by Friend of the Sea. The capsules do not contain fish oil sourced from tuna, shark, marlin or swordfish. The UK FSA advises pregnant women, and women intending to become pregnant to avoid shark, marlin and swordfish and not to eat large amounts of tuna.
Vitamin D in Pregnancy
The UK Department of Health advises a supplement of 10mcg vitamin D during pregnancy and breast-feeding, which is the exact amount found in Pregnacare.
Vitamin E in Pregnancy
Vitamin E contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. Pregnacare contains a low recommended dietary intake of 4mg. This is present in the natural form which is better absorbed by the mother than synthetic vitamin E.
The Importance of Omega-3 fatty acids
Adults can obtain DHA and EPA indirectly through the conversion of the essential fatty acid alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), present in vegetable oils such as linseed but this process is very inefficient. Fish oils provide a much more reliable, direct source of DHA and EPA. The foetus and infant in early life need to receive these fatty acids directly as they only have a limited capability to convert essential fatty acids to more active long chain fatty acids such as DHA.
Brain and eye development
DHA is the predominant fatty acid in the central nervous system, found in the structural walls of brain cells. Amazingly, the foetal brain is made up of 60% fats of which 40% is DHA. There is a large increase in DHA uptake by the foetus and a corresponding increase in cerebral DHA content during the last trimester of pregnancy and the first post natal months.1,2 At birth the baby's brain weight is about 70% of an adult's brain weight; 15% of brain growth occurs during infancy and the pre-school years.
DHA is important throughout this period of development.3 DHA is found in even greater concentrations in the retina, where it contributes up to 60% of the fatty acid content.
Maintaining Maternal Health
During pregnancy, the growing foetus and placenta can increase certain maternal nutritional requirements. As it can be difficult to maintain this requirement through diet alone. Pregnacare is proud to work in partnership with the Royal College of Midwives to support the health of mothers and babies by raising awareness of the benefits of good nutrition.
Quality and purity guaranteed
What the mother consumes has the potential to be passed on to the developing child, therefore only the purest pharmaceutical grade fish oil, has been used in Pregnacare Plus capsules. To ensure maximum benefit the oil is carefully concentrated to increase its DHA and EPA content and further purified. Each batch is rigorously tested, certified, and fully compliant with stringent EC and WHO rules on environmental pollutants.
Natural lemon oil is included in the shell of Pregnacare Plus capsules as an odour-mask for women who find it difficult to take fish oil supplements.
Pregnacare Plus is available in the UK from Boots, Superdrug, Tesco, Asda, Sainsburys, Waitrose, Morrisons, supermarkets and pharmacies, health stores including Holland & Barrett. Alternatively you can order online here.

Food supplements must not replace a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. As with other food supplements, consult your doctor or pharmacist before using if you are under medical supervision, have epilepsy, a thyroid condition, haemochromatosis, suffer from food allergies, or are allergic to any of the ingredients Allergy Advice: Made in a site that may handle nuts. For allergens, see ingredients in bold. As Pregnacare contains vitamin K, if you are taking oral anticoagulants (blood thinning medication) do not take Pregnacare except on the advice of a doctor. This product contains iron, which if taken in excess, may be harmful to very young children. Store below 25°C in a dry place, out of sight and reach of children.
During pregnancy, your baby is on what you eat as their only source of nourishment. So even with a good diet, extra specific nutrients may be very important around the time of pregnancy. Pregnacare Plus dual pack provides the original fully comprehensive Pregnacare multivitamin tablet including 400μg folic acid plus an Omega-3 capsule to provide a rich source of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). DHA contributes to normal brain and eye development in the foetus**. Pregnacare Plus contains the exact level recommended by international experts in lipid nutrition*** for pregnant and lactating women, plus 60mg EPA.
Why are Omega-3 fatty acids important?
Adults can obtain DHA and EPA indirectly through the conversion of the essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), present in vegetable oils such as linseed but this process is very inefficient. Fish oils provide a much more reliable, direct source of DHA and EPA. The foetus and infant in early life need to receive these fatty acids directly as they only have a limited capability to convert essential fatty acids to more active long chain fatty acids such as DHA.
When is Pregnacare Plus recommended?
Pregnacare Plus is recommended as soon as you start trying to conceive to help safeguard your nutritional needs before you find you are pregnant and throughout the whole of your pregnancy. Pregnacare Plus can be used for as long as required, and can be started at any point during pregnancy.
How pure is the fish oil in Pregnacare Plus?
What the mother consumes has the potential to be passed on to the developing child, therefore only the purest pharmaceutical grade fish oil, has been used in Pregnacare Plus capsules. To ensure maximum benefit the oil is carefully concentrated to increase its DHA and EPA content and further purified. Each batch is rigorously tested, certified, and fully compliant with stringent EC and WHO rules on environmental pollutants.
What do I need to know before starting to use Pregnacare Plus ?
Pregnacare Plus has been carefully developed by a team of medical experts including highly qualified pharmacists and medical consultants, and is based upon solid scientific research evidence, as a nutritional safeguard for women from before conception and throughout all of pregnancy. Pregnacare Plus is a multivitamin and fish oil supplement formulated to safeguard the nutritional needs of mother and baby. Pregnacare Plus replaces your usual daily multivitamin. Your doctor may wish to prescribe an additional iron supplement after the 13th week of pregnancy, which may be taken with Pregnacare Plus.
Can Pregnacare Plus be used alongside medicines?
As a general rule, Pregnacare Plus can be taken alongside medications because it contains only moderate levels of vitamins and minerals. However, if you are already taking prescribed supplements or medications, seek advice from your doctor or health professional first. As Pregnacare Plus contains vitamin K, if you are taking oral anticoagulants (blood thinners) do not take Pregnacare Plus except on the advice of a doctor.
How many tablets and capsules does one pack of Pregnacare Plus contain?
Pregnacare Plus contains 28 prenatal micronutrient tablets and 28 Omega 3 DHA capsules. It is recommended to take one of each per day.
How and when should Pregnacare Plus be used?
One tablet and one capsule per day is recommended with or immediately after your main meal, with water or a cold drink. Taking Pregnacare Plus with a large meal maximises the absorption of the nutrients, and can reduce nausea which is sometimes experienced if supplements are taken on an empty stomach. Pregnacare Plus should only be taken on a full stomach. Always ensure that Pregnacare Plus is taken with plenty of liquid to wash down the tablet and capsule. We do not recommend chewing the tablets or capsules because they have not been formulated as chewable preparations.
Are there any undesired effects whilst taking Pregnacare Plus?
Pregnacare Plus has no known side-effects when taken as directed. Do not exceed the recommended tablet/capsule intake. In case of overdose, seek medical advice immediately.
Need help swallowing a tablet or capsule?
Difficulty in swallowing tablets and capsules is quite a common experience. Vitabiotics have researched this extensively and recommend after chewing some food (e.g. banana), just before you swallow, pop it into your mouth and swallow it together with the chewed food, followed by some liquid. The throat opens up wider to swallow the chewed food and so it should go down with greater ease. Alternatively, the tablets or capsules may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies.
Is Pregnacare Plus suitable for vegetarians?
No Pregnacare Plus is not suitable for vegetarians as it contains fish oil in a pharmaceutical grade gelatin capsule. Adults can obtain DHA and EPA indirectly through the conversion of the essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), present in vegetable oils such as linseed but this process is very inefficient. Pregnacare Plus contains fish oil as it provides a much more reliable, direct source of DHA and EPA.
Some Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) levels are above 100%. Is this safe during pregnancy?
NRV levels are calculated to help prevent the most basic vitamin and mineral deficiency states. The levels contained in Pregnacare Plus are specific to normal requirements in pregnancy. This is why some levels of nutrients in Pregnacare Plus are higher than the NRV (e.g. folic acid, the recommended level is 200% NRV). Importantly, all levels are safe for pregnancy and well within upper safety guidelines for daily self-supplementation.
Does Pregnacare Plus contain Vitamin A (retinol), because excess may be harmful during pregnancy?
Pregnacare Plus does not contain any vitamin A either in the multivitamin tablet or the special fish oil DHA capsule. The multivitamin tablet has been carefully formulated specially for pregnancy to contain a moderate (non-excessive) level of betacarotene instead of vitamin A. Betacarotene (pro-retinol) is converted into vitamin A naturally by the body as required, and is safe and suitable for pregnancy. The Omega 3 capsule in Pregnacare Plus is produced from fish oils that are certified free from Vitamin A and therefore safe to take throughout pregnancy.
Why does Pregnacare Plus not include calcium, which is important during pregnancy?
Calcium is an essential mineral, however, it has not been included in the Pregnacare Plus formula since it is not possible to include a meaningful amount in the one-a-day multivitamin tablet. Rather that including just a token amount of calcium, as some products show on the label, Pregnacare Plus has been designed so that it can be used with the Vitabiotics Osteocare range of calcium products
I have been recommended by my midwife/G.P. to take a supplement containing 400 mcg of folic acid per day, only for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. Is it safe to take a supplement containing folic acid (like Pregnacare Plus ), after this time?
It is perfectly safe to take 400 mcg of folic acid per day throughout the whole of pregnancy. The U.K. Department of Health's Chief Medical Officer recommends that women planning a pregnancy should take a supplement containing 400 mcg folic acid daily, from the start of trying to conceive until the 12th week of pregnancy as folic acid has a role in the process of cell division. However, folic acid can be taken throughout pregnancy, not just up to the 12th week of pregnancy, since it plays other important roles later in pregnancy such as contributing to maternal tissue growth during pregnancy. Folic acid on its own or within Pregnacare Plus may therefore be taken throughout pregnancy. Pregnacare Plus gives the advantage of not only providing folic acid, but other essential nutrients as well.
What happens if I forget to take my Pregnacare Plus and miss a day?
A regular intake is recommended, but don't worry, this will not have done any harm. Simply take Pregnacare Plus on the next day when you remember, and take as directed. You should not take more than the recommended amount on subsequent days to make up for any day(s) that you have missed. Whilst it is important to take a supplement every day, if you miss one day this is fine because the beneficial effects of the vitamins and minerals build over time.
"I used pre-pregnancy Pregnacare for one month after trying to get pregnant for 9 months. I am now 6 weeks pregnant. Thank you for making our dreams become reality!"
"I’m amazed at the Pregnacare Breast-feeding support vitamins. I have a 4 month old and have been breast-feeding since birth. Initially I didn’t take any vitamins and suffered fatigue, cracked skin, brittle nails, lacklustre hair.

She started life at 6lb8 and 4 months later is a wonderful 15lb9oz. She couldn’t be healthier.lthier. "

"I’ve used Vitabiotics vitamins throughout my pregnancy and I’ve tried using a supermarket brand, before reverting back to Vitabiotics. I feel secure knowing I’m getting all of my nutrients in one hit, and I do notice when I am deficient in something (magnesium and iron in particular). As someone that suffered with morning sickness for over 20 weeks, I started with the Liquid as it tastes nice (a novelty!) and is easier on your stomach. I then moved onto Pregnacare Plus. Since taking Pregnacare Plus I’ve been told my skin is glowing and I’ve noticed a difference in my hair and nail strength. I haven’t had cravings since I’ve been taking Vitabiotics so I am a complete convert, I will continue with Vitabiotics after my daughter is born."
"It's my testimony. My wife is based in UK (Bradford). But for about 7 years we've been looking for another baby after our first born. Just this year, she told me about Wellman for me and Pregnacare Conception for us both. After about two months of taking lo and behold she's pregnant now. Thanks"

"My best friend started taking Pregnacare in December 2015, within her first packet after 10 years of hoping for a baby she fell pregnant. I decided after having my own struggles to conceive (12 years ttc) and being told I have high testosterone and signs of pcos and irregular periods thinking "it will never happen for me". I bought Pregnacare thinking, worse case scenario, I get some vitamins in me. Well first pack down (just) and we have found out I am pregnant. It has just blown my mind."

"I naturally conceived aged 48 years old, and my son was born when I was 49. I believe I am now the oldest first time mum, who conceived naturally, in the uk. I took Pregnacare Conception before I became pregnant, and I believe this contributed to my fertility at this older age; for this I would like to thank your company."

"Hi, thanks for making Pregnacare it is such a great product. I used it as soon as I found out I was pregnant the first time and found it helped so much, I had a healthy pregnancy and everything went much more smoothly for me than friends who never took Pregnacare. I have now started taking pregnacare again on my second pregnancy as i felt constantly tired without it so the product definitely works, thanks for making this product it is excellent :)"

"As I sit here typing this with my 11 week old beautiful little baby girl in my arms I realise how very lucky I am. After 12 hours of labour my little girl was stuck and had to be delivered with forceps. I lost 2 litres of blood and I firmly believe that the reason I did not require a blood transfusion was because of your product Pregnacare which I took throughout my pregnancy. You see my haemoglobin level was very high and dropped, but still to a safe level. I feel it was a key part in helping throughout the birth process and after emergency surgery. So thank you from the three of us!"
"I started using Pregnacare conception and I didn’t even finish my first box and fell pregnant...Its amazing and really works. Thank you, I will be recommending to everyone."
"I just wanted to say how wonderful the Pregnacare Breast-feeding supplements are. I have a 7 month old baby and I am breastfeeding. I had been extremely run down and struggled to get day to day tasks done. My mother in-law saw these tablets in her local chemist just over a month ago, and I have been taking them ever since. Myself and my husband noticed a change in my energy levels within 2 or 3 days of taking them. Thank you for making this wonderful product, I feel like the old me again - I only wish I'd found them sooner! "
"My husband and I had been trying to conceive for 17 months. I took Pregnacare Conception for one month and conceived before I'd even finished the first packet! I'm now 11 weeks pregnant and have been taking Pregnacare Plus for the past 2 months and am so far, having an easy pregnancy - I feel great. I would definitely recommend these tablets to anybody else."
"I just want to thank you for your wisdom and expertise in coming up with Pregnacare. This product helped my wife give birth to a very bouncing and active baby boy. My baby will be 7 months old and he has been crawling and learning how to stand up already. Before pregnancy she was on WELLWOMAN and switched to PREGNACARE right from conception. By taking Pregnacare she has had a very healthy pregnancy and my baby was born healthy with a good weight. There were no complications during her pregnancy. Thank you."
"I am 7 months pregnant and for the first 3 months I was using... just folic acid and iron tablets. I decided to move onto Pregnacare after the pharmacist recommended them to me. I’ve been on Pregnacare ever since and I wouldn’t go back. They give me all the vitamins I need to have a healthy baby. My pregnancy is going fantastically well, thanks to Pregnacare."
"We decided to try for a baby after 8 years of marriage. I decided to take Pregnacare Conception and after the first box, I fell pregnant and I had a very good pregnancy. I went on to take Pregnacare Plus and I gave birth to a health baby boy on his exact due date. I continued to take Pregnacare breast feeding, I would highly recommend this product. "
"I have just started using Vitabiotics Pregnacare Conception after a close friend recommended it to me as she has had trouble conceiving for years. She took Pregnacare Conception and didn’t even finish the box and is now six months pregnant. I have heard of the effectiveness of the product from several people and cant wait to soon live its wonders..! "
"I used Pregnacare for both my pregnancies and after my second pregnancy I used Pregnacare Breast-feeding and I cannot express how brilliant this product is! It is fantastic and gives you all of the vitamins you need! if I ever have another baby I will certainly be using these products again as both my boys are very healthy and happy :) thank you Pregnacare!"
"After being told I would have trouble conceiving I decided to take Pregnacare conception and after a year I fell pregnant, during my pregnancy I took Pregnacare with Omega and when my baby was born he was very strong and alert and he is very advanced for his age, so I definitely think it's down to Pregnacare. "
"I just wanted to say that the Breastfeeding supplement is amazing! I was determined not to supplement my son, despite slow weight gain so started taking Pregnacare Breast-feeding myself a month ago. He is a different baby which I am putting down to more nutritious milk. Thank you so much, would recommend to anyone"
"I just wanted to say a big thank you to Pregnacare! I am now 33 weeks along with a very active baby and have been taking Pregnacare with Omega 3 from the first month onwards. I am quite a fussy eater and was worried about not eating any fish during the pregnancy. With Pregnacare, I didn't have to worry about missing out on anything needed for my baby (DHA, Omega oils, Folic Acid) and so many people have commented on how healthy I looked during my pregnancy - they were amazed! I was so happy that I was able to get them when I was in Hong Kong because of your superb mail order service and I am now ordering them from Japan. I have stocked up on Pregnacare Breastfeeding for after the pregnancy and have even ordered Wellman for my husband to try. Thank you so much and I would highly recommend Pregnacare to anyone who is thinking about getting pregnant or is pregnant now - it really works!"
"After trying to conceive for 2 years, we both started to take Pregnacare His and Her Conception about 2 months ago. I am now 6 weeks pregnant-it really does work! Thank you."
"I travelled to London in September 2009 and bought Pregnacare tablets at Boots. After several months, I found I was pregnant and now my lovely baby is 3 months old.

"My husband and I had been trying to conceive for 2 years. I started to taking Pregnacare conception about 3 months ago. 8 weeks ago I decided that my hubby needs to start taking Wellman Conception and BAM I am now 6 weeks pregnant! It really does work! Thank you."
"I took Pregnacare Original throughout my pregnancy and not only did it ensure that both baby and I were getting all the best vitamins possible, but we now have a beautiful baby boy who at 4 months old surprises us every day with how strong he is. I'm convinced all the vitamins and minerals in Pregnacare helped him to be as strong and healthy as he is today and as parents it's great to know you've given him the best possible start, even before he arrived! I would absolutely recommend Pregnacare to any mum-to-be."

"I started taking Pregnacare Plus as soon as I was pregnant through the whole 40 weeks and what a difference it made in my wellbeing. My son was born very alert and wide eyed right from the first minute. His motor skills for a new born are amazing. I am continuing with the Pregnacare breast-feeding & new mum and am sure it will continue to keep me and my son very healthy and strong. Thanks for a very good product."
"I’m soo happy after months of trying, Pregnacare Conception gave me all my missing vitamins and after just two weeks of taking them i found out i’m pregnant soo happy "
"AMAZING - I have 3 children and my partner said let’s have another so i started taking Pregnacare Original and then found out i was pregnant. I am now 7 weeks and i just know it’s down to Pregnacare. A BIG THANK YOU "
"I think Pregnacare His & Hers (for women and men) is brilliant. We have been trying for a baby for about 11 months and after taking Pregnacare His & Hers tablets for only 2 weeks I have found out that I’m pregnant after the first month. I am now about 3 weeks pregnant. Thank you, my husband and I are soooo happy."
"My Husband and I have been trying for a baby for 3 years now. I decided to try Pregnacare Plus Omega 3, I took this for 2 months and I am 5 months pregnant now, our scan shows our baby is developing perfectly with great movement in the womb. I believe this is all due to Pregnacare, thank you so much!"
"I took pregnacare from about three months until the end of my pregnancy. My baby boy was born very very alert and could follow my partners finger the day he was born. He only weighed 6lb at birth but even the midwives commented on his alertness. I tell everyone it's due to pregnacare ... I'm sure it is :) now breatfeeding I take pregnacare breast-feeding and feel happy knowing I'm providing my baby the healthiest milk I can especially as I'm a fussy eater. Definitely recommend!"
"I was using Pregnacare Conception 2 and a half months before I became pregnant. I thought they were very good and also they weren't too hard on the stomach. I am nearly 7 weeks gone now and I am using up my remaining tablets."
"Dear Vitabiotics, after two years trying to conceive, my partner and I started fertility treatment as we were told we would need ICSI/IVF . I started taking Pregnacare Conception and my partner switched to Wellman Conception as soon as we found out about it. Less than two months later and I am five weeks pregnant - naturally. We are both 42 years old. I will be recommending your product to anyone trying to conceive."
"During my first 2 pregnancies i was prescribed high dose iron tablets which had side effects. The 3rd time round i decided to try Pregnacare which had a good level of iron and along with a healthy diet i didn’t have any problems .I can’t praise it highly enough!"
"I used Pregnacare Plus Omega 3 all the way through my first pregnancy and I felt great. My baby was so strong and healthy when he was born, and has continued to be so. When tested he was 7 months ahead in his intelligence and progress and although I can't prove it, I put a lot of this down to combining the Pregnacare Plus with a good diet. I will be using Pregnacare now I am pregnant again. I am just glad I am able to get these now I have moved to Chile."
"After 3 IVF attempts with no luck we decided the our fourth will be the last one, on the way to the clinic we saw the Pregnacare ad in the tube and decided to try..... What a difference that made, everything was so much better this time round and the result..........a twin pregnancy!!! So just like to say a big thank you. I have recommended Pregnacare to quite a few people, one family member who was going for IVF took it as well and now has twin girls also!!!"
"Just want to say Pregnacare is a great compact multivitamin. The antenatal doctor recommended your product and I have never looked back or regretted it. They are easily tolerated and instead of having to take folic acid separately I was happy with just the one pill to take. I have taken Pregnacare for just under one month & am feeling great. Highly thanking your team."
"Since I found out I was pregnant I have been taking your Pregnacare Plus Omega 3 and have been so so happy with the product and the way it has kept me healthy and given me the right amount of everything needed for me and baby. I have also used daily or every other day your Pregnacare streching cream which is fab and I have not one stretch mark on my body none at all, I have again used this from the beginning. I am 8 month's 1 week pregnant so really am at the last stretch and can't say enough how pleased I am I chose Pregnacare products."
"my husband and i want to say thank you very much for your product pregnacare conception.We've been trying for almost ten years to have a baby and nothing happened, but with the help of this product...I am almost a months pregnant now...thank you again."
"Dear Sir/Madam, i have been trying for a baby for 3yrs and after using Pregnacare Conception for 1month i finally conceived. Thanks for the production of this supplement."
"I would highly recommend Pregnacare Conception - i have been taking Pregnacare then changed to Conception - I got pregnant before the end of my first box. They are easy to take (with food) with plenty of vitamins & iron for energy - especially in the first few weeks of pregnancy. Thank You!!"
"This product is Awesome. I wanted a prenatal supplement and went to the pharmacy to shop around. The packaging looked informative and appealing so I chose it. This was November, by December I was pregnant (1mth)! I took it every day. My baby was born in the ending of July at a whopping 8lbs11oz. He was beautiful: skin glowing, healthy and vibrant. I made it a point of my duty to invite every pregnant mother at my work place to use it. Currently there are six and they all testify wonderful things about their pregnancies on this pill. I would definitely recommend it to every mother. Thanks, Pregnacare. "
"I’ve already had two children so when the pregnancy test kept being negative i was worried! We tried for 1 year,then i read about your before you conceive vitamin. I thought i would give it a go and a month later a was with child,sooooo thank you i am sure its thanks to you guys!i feel great as well so fingers crossed"
"Since taking Pregnacare, I feel much more full of energy. Thanks!"
"An email to thank you for creating good products for me. When I wanted to get pregnant,I took Pregnacare- and had a healthy baby (naturally) at 46 !
"Pregnacare is a lovely supplement for pregnant women. It gives me so much energy that without it my pregnancy would have been very difficult and dull!! I never forget to take Pregnacare since I first started…and no other supplement compares to Pregnacare!! It’s fabulous!!"
"Hello, Just a quick note to complement you on your excellent, fast delivery and communication of despatch with my order of Pregnacare tablets. I have never ordered from you before and I am always dubious about internet transactions, but I needn't have worried as the standard of service is excellent. The bonus point scheme is a great idea also, I shall certainly use you again and shall recommend you to friends and family. Thank you.
"Working in a new job and just finding out you're pregnant is not easy! Of course you need to focus on trainings, inductions and all the rest, and you don't want to appear unethusiastic. Well, for the first 8 weeks, I had a tough time. Luckily, a colleague recommended Pregnacare. Ever since I started taking it, I have felt energetic and more alert during the day.
"I would like to thank vitabiotics for developing Pregnacare tablets, I took them every day for a year before I became pregnant and all through my pregnancy, and after, I had a very healthy 9lb 2oz baby girl now 17 months and now I am taking the Pregnacare again, whilst trying for another baby. My consultant in hospital said it was excellent that I was taking such a good combination of minerals and vitamins throughout my pregnancy, as it gave my unborn baby such a great start. Many thanks"
"I am 12 weeks pregnant, and recently started taking your Pregnacare tablets. I have already found them making a great difference and wellbeing. Thank you."
"When I first found out I was pregnant, I was lacking iron. I saw a leaflet that was given to me in a mum-to-be pack which was pregnacare. I thought I'd give it a try and ever since taking them I have felt great, and had no problems with the amount of iron and also my baby's growth is well too. I definitely recommend these to anyone. 21 years old, 30wks pregnant. (at time of this review 30/06/04)"
"I just wanted to tell you how wonderful Pregnacare is. I was ill all the way through my first pregnancy with terrible sickness and anaemia, was off work almost constantly and ended up in hospital. I dreaded the same thing when I became pregnant again. However I took Pregnacare all the way through as I was still breastfeeding my son as well and this time I sailed through the pregnancy with no problems at all. In fact the only day I was sick was the one day I forgot to take my Pregnacare pill the night before. Coincidence? Who knows? I know that every pregnancy is supposed to be different but the difference was rather extreme - from a miserable shivering wreck who could do nothing but lay down all day to an active healthy women full of life and energy. Thank you so much. I am still continuing to take Pregnacare as I am breastfeeding and would recommend it to anyone.
"I am trying for a baby, so I decided to start taking pregnacare,they give you every thing you need to keep you healthy, all the right nutritions
so you dont have to keep buying all different ones. It has everything you need to keep you both healthy"
""Pregnacare has made me feel terrific during my pregnancy. I have more energy than ever before and feel healthy overall. My doctor stressed the importance of folic acid duing my pregnancy and I feel confident I'm doing the best for my baby by taking Pregnacare everyday. I plan to continue taking it after childbirth to ensure my baby and I are getting all the vitamins and nutrients we need.""
