Pregnacare Liquid FAQ

Why has Pregnacare Liquid been developed?

During pregnancy, your baby is totally reliant 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 has been specially formulated so mothers-to-be can safeguard their extra dietary requirement without confusion about which supplements to take. Pregnacare Liquid has been developed for those that may have difficulty in swallowing tablets or simply prefer a liquid format, with a great tasting orange flavour. Pregnacare Liquid contains a careful combination of 18 vitamins and minerals, including 400mcg folic acid, 10mcg vitamin D, and vitamin B12.

When is Pregnacare recommended?

Pregnacare is recommended as soon as you start trying to conceive to help safeguard your nutritional needs before you find out you are pregnant; throughout the whole of your pregnancy and also whilst breast-feeding when extra demands are placed on your body. Pregnacare can be used for as long as required, and can be started at any point during pregnancy.

What do I need to know before starting to use Pregnacare?

Pregnacare has been carefully developed by a team of medical experts including highly qualified pharmacists and nutritional experts, and is based upon solid scientific research evidence, as a nutritional safeguard for women from before conception, and all throughout pregnancy. Pregnacare is a multivitamin and mineral dietary supplement formulated to safeguard the nutritional needs of mother and baby. Pregnacare Liquid 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.

 Can Pregnacare be used alongside medicines?

As a general rule, Pregnacare 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 contains vitamin K, if you are taking oral anticoagulants (blood thinners) do not take Pregnacare except on the advice of a doctor.

How many days' supply of Pregnacare Liquid provide?
 

Before and during pregnancy take two x 5ml teaspoonsful of Pregnacare Liquid per day (10ml total). A 5ml spoon is included in the pack. Each 200ml bottle provides 20 days supply.

How and when should Pregnacare Liquid be used?

Two x 5ml teaspoonsful per day is recommended with or immediately after your main meal. Pregnacare should only be taken on a full stomach. Taking the supplement with a large meal maximises the absorption of the nutrients, and can reduce the occasional mild nausea which is sometimes experienced if multivitamins are taken on an empty stomach. After opening store the liquid in the fridge. Pregnacare Liquid is suitable for vegetarians.

Are there any undesired effects whilst taking Pregnacare?

Pregnacare has no known side-effects when taken as directed. Do not exceed the recommended intake. In case of overdose, seek medical advice immediately.

What are the active ingredients?

Please see nutritional information

Does Pregnacare Liquid include calcium?

Pregnacare Liquid does not contain calcium, but if required an additional calcium and magnesium supplement such as Osteocare can be taken with Pregnacare.

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 are specific to normal requirements in pregnancy. This is why some levels of nutrients in Pregnacare are higher than the NRV (e.g. folic acid, the recommended level is 200% NRV). More importantly, all levels are safe for pregnancy and well within upper safety guidelines for daily self-supplementation.

Does Pregnacare contain Vitamin A (retinol), because excess may be harmful during pregnancy?

No, Pregnacare does not contain any vitamin A in the multivitamin liquid which has been carefully formulated specially for pregnancy to contain a moderate (non-excessive) level of betacarotene (provided as natural mixed carotenoids) 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.

I have been recommended by my midwife/G.P. to take a supplement containing 400 µg 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), after this time?

It is perfectly safe to take 400µg of folic acid per day throughout the whole of pregnancy. The U.K. Department of Health recommends that women planning a pregnancy should take a supplement containing 400µg folic acid daily, from the start of trying to conceive until the 12th week of pregnancy, especially in relation to neural tube development in the developing baby. However folic acid also plays a role in the process of cell division and contributes to maternal tissue growth during pregnancy. Folic acid on its own or within Pregnacare may therefore be taken throughout pregnancy. Pregnacare gives the advantage of not only providing folic acid, but other essential nutrients as well.

What happens if I forget to take my Pregnacare and miss a day?

A regular intake is recommended, but don't worry, this will not have done any harm. Simply take Pregnacare 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.

How to subscribe to Pregnacare Liquid?
