There is no other time in a woman’s life where the taking of a vitamin supplement is more important than in pregnancy. In fact, the makeup of many prenatal vitamins is so good that some women use them even when they aren’t pregnant. Because the body is truly providing for two and because the fetus is growing and developing so rapidly, beginning a prenatal vitamin as soon as a woman knows she’s pregnant is vital to the health of the pregnancy.

 

Women who are vegetarians are often challenged in finding a proper prenatal vitamin containing vitamins with vegan sources. Deva Nutrition has taken the best and most natural vegan-based vitamins and combined them into a vitamin precisely tailored to the pregnant woman. Let’s look at some of the special needs of pregnant women and look at how this vegan prenatal product addresses those needs.


Two of the most important vitamins necessary for adequate fetal development are also the two most prone to being deficient: vitamin B12 and folic acid. Deficiencies in folic acid, in particular, have been linked to neural tube defects in early pregnancy. Deva Vegan Prenatal Formula provides 200% of the recommended daily allowances of folic acid. Vitamin B12 is difficult for vegans to get in their diet due to its presence primarily in meat products. The Deva Vegan Prenatal Formula provides over 1500% of the RDA of this vitamin. It is entirely possible that a pregnant woman who is also eats a vegan diet begins her pregnancy with less than adequate amounts of vitamin B12, so the amount in the prenatal vitamin can clearly put her ahead very quickly.


Vitamin C helps prevent some of the leg cramps, nausea and vomiting associated with early pregnancy. The Deva Vegan Prenatal Vitamin provides 200% of the RDA of this vitamin. As this is a water-soluble vitamin, it isn’t worrisome to take a bit extra.


While most prenatal vitamins try to pack in as much as they can into the vitamin, Deva Nutrition has been careful not to promote an excess of potentially toxic fat soluble vitamins. Vitamin A is provided as water-soluble beta carotene at a level that won’t cause vitamin A toxicity. Vitamin E is from an all-natural source and is provided in a safe amount. Deficiencies in vitamin E in pregnancy have been linked to birth defects so having “just enough” is important. Vitamin K, another fat-soluble vitamin, is also in amounts that avoid toxicity.


Vitamin D, important in calcium metabolism, is provided as vitamin D2, the only vegan source of the vitamin, at 100% of the recommended daily allowance. The body uses this form just like the vitamin D one can obtain from the sun.


The B vitamins are all well-represented in the Deva Vegan Prenatal Multivitamin. The B vitamins are safe when taken in higher doses and are vital to a healthy pregnancy. Research shows that up to 50% of all expecting mothers are deficient in vitamin B6, provided at 625% of the recommended daily allowance in this vitamin.


The Deva Vegan Prenatal Multivitamin provides biotin, another commonly deficient nutrient in pregnancy. Choline is provided and is necessary for fetal brain development.


The full range of minerals is provided in doses that maximize the growth and development of the fetus. Iron (in the form of an amino acid chelate) is extremely important to have in a good prenatal vitamin; it is provided at 117% of the recommended daily allowance. Iodine, Zinc, Selenium, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, Molybdenum and Boron are all provided in adequate amounts.


When available, the all-vegan sources are all-natural and provided in the most bioavailable way. This means that the once-daily pill the mother takes will actually be absorbed as easily as possible so that both mom and baby get the nutrients they need.

Because Calcium takes up a great deal of space in any multivitamin, there is no prenatal vitamin that provides the amount of Calcium a pregnant woman needs for proper fetal bone development. For that reason, separate Calcium supplementation is always recommended during pregnancy, especially if the daily dietary intake is lacking.

Deva Vegan Prenatal Multivitamin with Minerals provides the total-package in prenatal supplementation for any expecting mother, not just those on vegan diets. It contains the right combination of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients without providing any of them in harmful amounts. Taking one per day throughout the pregnancy and during lactation may make the difference between a healthy pregnancy and a pregnancy struggling to get the right nutrients.

Deva Vegan Prenatal Multivitamin is 100% animal free, and guaranteed for purity, freshness and labeled potency. Remember all Deva Products are 100% vegan, vegetarian and are certified by the Vegan Society, the non-profit organization that actually invented the word "vegan".

What to Eat for a Healthy Plant-Based Pregnancy

You’re expecting. And you're vegan. Congratulations! You can stop worrying. A vegan pregnancy is not only possible, it can be perfectly healthy, thanks to the abundance of vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients supplied by a nutritious plant-based diet. Eating for two – no matter which type of diet you follow – requires some changes. To be sure you’re getting everything you (and your little sprout!) need, focus on filling your plate with the following foods for the next nine months.

Go for grains

If you’re vegan, you probably already eat plenty of whole grains. Bread, pasta and other foods made from grains provide key nutrients to support overall health. What you may not have known is that the B vitamins in whole grains also help ensure healthy nervous system development during gestation. Found in fortified grains such as cereal, folate or folic acid reduces baby’s risk of neural tube defects such as spina bifida and anencephaly. Another benefit of grains, such as oatmeal – a natural source of selenium – is to supply antioxidants, which promote immune health to help fight illness throughout pregnancy.

Pile on the protein

Vegan protein sources can easily provide the daily recommended 71 grams needed to support healthy fetal growth. Bean and lentils provide iron, a crucial mineral during pregnancy that carries oxygen in the blood. Plant proteins are considered non-heme iron sources, so be sure to pair them with foods high in vitamin C to promote iron absorption and avoid deficiency.

Veg out

High in vitamins A and C, potassium, fiber, and folic acid, fruits and vegetables are well-known powerhouses of nutrition. Potassium specifically can help maintain fluid balance, keep blood pressure stable and help prevent muscle cramps. Aim to eat all the colors of the rainbow weekly and at least 2 cups of fruit and 2½ to 3 cups of vegetables each day.

Consider calcium

High-calcium vegan foods such as fortified plant-based milks, soy products (such as tofu) and leafy greens are important for the baby’s teeth and bone health. The daily recommended amount of calcium for women is 1,000 milligrams. Pregnant women who are vegan should be mindful about eating a variety of foods rich in calcium every day to reach that goal.

Take a prenatal supplement

Most doctors recommend a daily prenatal supplement to act as a nutritional “safety net,” and this can serve vegans well. For instance, while some plant-based foods (such as nutritional yeast) are fortified with vitamin B-12, you might find it hard to consume enough of this nutrient – which is vital for baby’s development – every day. A supplement can help ensure your intake is consistent. Another example is omega-3 fatty acids, needed for healthy brain development. If you aren’t obtaining enough through plant-based foods, such as flaxseed and walnuts, a prenatal supplement can be taken as backup.
