prepping your body for pregnancy – Take a prenatal vitamin at least 3 months before trying to conceive

When prepping someone for pregnancy right way I start them on a good prenatal and omegas ( I love Nordic naturals ultimate omegas) . For the prenatal I prefer anything thats food based and my favorite is Garden of life raw prenatal : Imagel

http://www.gardenoflife.com/Products-for-Life/Vitamin-Code/Multivitamin-Formulas/RAW-Prenatal.aspx 

this is why I like this one ( copied from their website )

This unique formula is specially designed to provide immune support for BOTH mom and baby not only during pregnancy, but after birth as well: 

  • Supports the immune system of your unborn child
  • Supports the immune system of Mom and her newborn baby
  • Supports healthy digestion and elimination with Probiotics, Ginger, Vitamin D, and Zinc
  • Helps ease common digestive discomforts typically associated with pregnancy
  • Supports heart and blood health with Iron, Vitamins C, E, and B-Complex, plus Folate
  • Supports healthy neural tube development with 800mcg of Folate
  • Supports skin health with Vitamins A and C, Copper and Iron

Why Choose Vitamin Code RAW Prenatal?

With Vitamin Code RAW Prenatal, you can rest assured that our vitamins are uncooked, untreated and unadulterated, with no binders or fillers and always dairy-free and gluten-free. These factors alone should make Vitamin Code RAW Prenatal your multivitamin of choice. But there’s even more to Vitamin Code RAW Prenatal making it even more valuable.

Vitamin Code RAW Prenatal contains clinically studied probiotics that not only enhance the immune systems of mothers, but that of their babies as well.† Vitamin Code Prenatal is also a wonderful multivitamin for newly lactating mothers—with the immune support extending to that of the newborn, breast-fed baby.† For any mother looking to give her child a “head start,” supporting the child’s immune system, even before birth, is a must.

During pregnancy, blood volume can increase up to 50%, increasing iron requirements and causing the heart to work harder to support the developing child’s needs. Vitamin Code RAW Prenatal Formula supports heart health and blood health with raw food-created iron, vitamins C, E, and B-Complex, plus folate.

Vitamin Code RAW Prenatal also contains 800mcg of raw food-created folate. The Centers for Disease Control recommends at least 400mcg of folate in support of healthy neural tube development before conception through at least the first trimester of pregnancy. Folate is a B vitamin found mostly in green, leafy vegetables such as spinach or kale. Supporting healthy neural tube development decreases the risk of babies being born with a birth defect of the brain or spinal cord.

And of course, feeling your best at this unbelievable time is why Vitamin Code RAW Prenatal also contains ginger for morning sickness. Ginger has been traditionally used for generations to ease the common digestive discomforts typically associated with being pregnant.

The other 2 I like are New Chapter Organics Perfect Prenatal and Rainbow Light Complete Prenatal . 

This morning I was reading a chapter in Victoria Maizes book ;” Be fruitful “- The essential guide to maximizing fertility and giving birth to a healthy child . She reveals two studies taken in 2011 that shows woman who took a prenatal multivitamin 3 month before becoming pregnant reduced their chances of having a child with autism or severe langue delay . 

Here is another article in since daily  on talking a prenatal and Autism :
