Vitamins During Pregnancy
Tickled pink (or blue)? Pick up pickles and prenatal vitamins at Vitacost.com!
Nine months ‘til baby arrives-that’s plenty of time for pint-loads of ice cream and late-night foot massages from Hubby. But right now, you’re looking for prenatal vitamins. Congrats! You’re doing the right thing, Mama. Here’s why:
You can stick to a wholesome diet, cut out caffeine and bump up calories for the added energy your body needs, but there are some nutrients that skyrocket in importance when you’re pregnant. Prenatal vitamins make sure you and your little bundle get everything you need-especially on days when drive-through tacos “accidentally” replaced the whole-grain pasta and veggie dinner you meant to eat.
These vitamins are loaded with vitamins and minerals, and they deliver just the right amount of top-priority-for-pregnancy nutrients, including:
- Folic acid: well-known for supporting the normal development of baby’s brain and spinal cord
- Calcium: needed by both baby and Mom for strong bones and teeth
- Iron: crucial for healthy blood and muscle cells
At Vitacost.com, you’ll find dozens of prenatal vitamins from top brands. Once you’ve picked the perfect one, head over to our Grocery section for some great organic and healthy snacks (yes, we really carry pickles!). If your order totals $49, we’ll ship it to you for free.
