Can I take Daily Essential Nutrients if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?

Yes. The Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists recommends that women with no personal health risks take a daily multivitamin with folic acid at least 12 weeks before conception, throughout pregnancy, and 4 to 6 weeks postpartum or as long as breastfeeding continues. Daily Essential Nutrients meets the daily needs of women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.*


What are the benefits of taking Daily Essential Nutrients while breastfeeding?

Daily Essential Nutrients provides calcium, vitamin D, and many more essential nutrients to help meet a breastfeeding woman’s needs. Because breastfed babies rely wholly upon their mother for nutritional support, mothers need not only additional calories but extra vitamins and minerals. 

By continuing to take Daily Essential Nutrients, both mother and baby will receive the nutritional support that is so important for a healthy postpartum experience
