An ironic thing about pregnancy is that you develop mommy brain, yet this time in your life brings a host of things to remember.
Thankfully, the books and apps are there to remind you what not to eat, how many calories to intake, what symptoms you may be feeling and how important it is to take a prenatal vitamin.
It’s easy to forget to take something daily, especially if you’re not used to it. I always keep my vitamins in the most obvious place that I could never possibly forget or overlook; right next to my coffee filters!
It’s an obscure spot, but one I will never miss. Thankfully, my doctor and numerous books I’ve read said I can safely have one small cup of coffee daily. (Of course, if caffeine intake during pregnancy is a concern, you should definitely speak to your doctor.)
Choosing a prenatal vitamin was a bit of a task for me. I’ve had three children and am at the end of my fourth pregnancy, and each time I’ve searched for the new “it” vitamin.
I’ve tried a bunch and know what I like and what I’m looking for. I didn’t want a vitamin with artificial ingredients but wanted one that tasted good and was easy on the stomach. These vitamins exist, I promise!
Since 2005, UpSpring, a mom-founded and mom-run company has made all-natural products based on true science that solve real problems.
They’ve created UpSpring Prenatal+, a complete multivitamin that also includes omega-3 DHA and choline (in the form of Alpha GPC), which are clinically shown to support fetal brain development.
Alpha GPC is a highly bioavailable form of choline and the only form that crosses the blood-brain barrier to nourish your baby’s growing brain. It also helps to enhance DHA absorption. This formula also contains the natural form of vitamin B9, folate, instead of synthetic folic acid.
While these yummy mango-peach gummies need to be taken three times a day, it’s easy to do so because you can take one with each meal. Besides the three gummies, moms will also need to take one easy-to-swallow softgel.
By taking these prenatals, you’ll get 100% of the daily value of 11 essential nutrients, plus omega-3 and Alpha GPC.
And even though I have a few days left until my fourth baby is here, this UpSpring Prenatal+ will be coming with me to the hospital.
Since I plan to breastfeed, it’s important that I continue to take my prenatal vitamin.
While I won’t be growing baby on the inside after delivery, I will be responsible for helping him grow while living on the outside.
Tell me, have you ever tried UpSpring Prenatal+? What do you look for when choosing a prenatal vitamin?
