Do Prenatal Vitamins Make You Sick? Here's an Alternative to Ask Your Doctor About! by Christy Garrett
Do your prenatal vitamins leave you feeling nauseous? Talk to your healthcare provider and determine if you can take alternative vitamins.
- Gummy prenatal vitamins are a great choice. They don’t contain any iron, but they do contain other nutrients that expectant moms need for a healthy baby. If you are anemic, you'll have to find an alternative iron supplement.
- Another option is to take a children’s chewable multivitamin.
I took the gummies while pregnant because the prenatal vitamins left me feeling sick to my stomach. Be sure to ask your healthcare provider about your specific concerns.
