Specially formulated for the first trimester of pregnancy.  Every ingredient is exceptional quality.  Supports a healthy pregnancy and foetal development.

Does not contain iron. Iron supplementation in the first trimester may aggravate the symptoms of morning sickness. Seek advice from your health professional if you are iron deficient.

For best results, chew one tablet twice daily with food and keep taking until nausea resolves (usually around week 14-16), then continue with Prenatal Trimester 2 & 3 Plus Breastfeeding.
