How to Choose the Best Prenatal Vitamin

About two weeks ago, a fellow dietitian asked me for a prenatal vitamin recommendation. I've written a post on prenatal vitamins before, but nothing in depth. Her simple question inspired me to write a more thorough guide to help you choose the best prenatal supplement.

This post gives guidance and suggestions, not hard and fast rules. If you can't find a vitamin that meets all the criteria, don't worry! Something's better than nothing. And don't forget, what you eat is far more important than any supplement you take.

I've answered eight of the most common questions I get about prenatal vitamins. If you have any other questions about prenatals, please ask in the comments section below or send me an email. 

Also, check out the end of this post for a free prenatal vitamin checklist you can download and take with you to the store. It'll help you sort through all the options you'll find on the shelves.
