For the health of mothers and their unborn babies, many–for good reason–turn to taking prenatal vitamins while pregnant and lactating (and even when trying to get pregnant too). There are a multitude of options out there, and although opting for an organic prenatal vitamin might be the best, some don’t know where to start when it comes to finding what’s right for them. Here are five brands of organic prenatal vitamins to consider when deciding what will be best for you and your baby during your pregnancy. As always, checking with your doctor about specific products will help make sure you’re putting into your body what it needs and not what it doesn’t.
New Chapter Organics: Perfect Prenatal Organic Whole-Food Multivitamin
New Chapter is the standard when it comes to organic prenatal vitamins. Branded as nourishing fulfillment for you and your baby, Perfect Prenatal is an organic probiotic whole-food prenatal vitamin. New Chapter’s Perfect Prenatal is designed to be easy digestible and completely safe. You can currently find Perfect Prenatal at sale prices of $49.97 (plus shipping) for 180 tablets-the suggested use being three tablets daily.
NewMark: Prenatal Synbiotic Nutrients
An organic alternative to USP vitamins and minerals, NewMark’s Prenatal Synbiotic Nutrients are cultured in organic whole-foods using health-promoting strains of probiotics. The Synbiotic Nutrients have been shown to be gentle and easily digested–even by more sensitive bodies. With 23 whole-food vitamins and minerals, and 17 energizing and protective superfood and herbal concentrates, Prenatal Synbiotc Nutrients pack quite a healthful punch.

SuperNutrition: Simply One Prenatal Multivitamin
Simply One is a food-based multivitamin enriched with organic greenfoods and herbs. Although some ingredients in the formula are certified organic, not all ingredients in SuperNutrition blends are.
