When you first get pregnant, there are many concerns and questions that run through your mind. There are so many pregnancy essentials that make the list. It can be tough to know where to start and make sure you cover all of your bases. However, nearly every women knows one thing she needs to do immediately; go get prenatal vitamins! Enter Nestlé Materna.
Being pregnant with my second, I am now a pro at this pregnancy thing. So naturally, I had prenatal vitamins on the go when we started to try for baby #2.
Note – I have
crazy brave friends who have 6 kids. I am no where near pro.
Are prenatal vitamins fun? Well no, not always. They can kind of resemble horse pills and can be a little tricky to get down when you are battling the early stages of pregnancy. With this pregnancy, I struggled far worse with morning sickness than I ever did with Lilly. The last thing I wanted to do was shove pills down my throat. However, I have still made sure to take my vitamins everyday. Why? Because it is what is best for me and my baby.
A bit about the benefits of Nestlé Materna
Whether a woman is planning to get pregnant soon, pregnant now or breastfeeding, Nestlé Materna prenatal / postnatal vitamins help nourish their body with folic acid to help prevent neural tube defects when taken daily prior to becoming pregnant and during early pregnancy. They also provide 22 other essential vitamins and minerals they and baby need through pregnancy and nursing.
Experts say that when starting your family planning, you should start taking prenatal vitamins right away. Ideally, you want to have them in your system 12 weeks prior to becoming pregnant. Learn more about why prenatal and postnatal vitamins are important for you and your baby.

This would be for me, I am now 19 weeks pregnant with my second child. I am careful what I eat to ensure I am getting the necessary nutrients from food as well as taking prenatal vitamins. I also limit my exposure to anything that could increase any risk to my baby through work. I try to get enough rest and take a break when I can get one!
