Pregnacareavoids high dose iron which is not recommended
Vitamin D in Pregnancy
The Department of Health recommends that all pregnant and breast-feeding women take a supplement containing10mcg vitamin D,which is the exact amount found in Pregnacare.
Unlike many prenatal iron supplements, Pregnacarehas been specifically formulated with an ideal, moderate level of iron. High levels of iron are not recommended unless there is a particular requirement as identified by your healthcare professional.
Pregnacareis recommended before conception to build up the stores of nutrients such as iron in women who are trying for a baby. Good nutrition is important to help prepare a woman's body for the additional demands placed on it during pregnancy. Certain nutrients, like folic acid, vitamin B12 and zinc, are also of particular importance from the very first moment of conception, for neural tube development and cell division.
Vitamin E is an essential nutrient, important for helping maintain healthy skin, nerves, heart and circulation, muscles and red blood cells. Pregnacarecontains a low recommended dietary intake of 4mg. This is present in the natural form which is better absorbed by the mother and transported to the foetus than synthetic vitamin E.
For all of pregnancy
Good nutritional intake is vital throughout pregnancy, not just the first 12 weeks. Iron, B vitamins and folic acid are particularly important for blood formation later in pregnancy, when a mother must produce extra red blood cells for the baby's new blood supply. Pregnacarecan be started at any point during pregnancy.
Ideal if breast-feeding
Optimum nutrition is valuable during breast-feeding, to assist the production of nutritious breast milk and to help replace a mother's reserves of vitamins and minerals, which may be reduced. Zinc is important for milk production and vitamin K is important to help the baby maintain healthy levels of blood clotting proteins. Antioxidant vitamins in breast milk, such as vitamin E, may also be important for the baby's immune system..
