PREGVIT PRENATAL/POSTPARTUM VITAMIN-MINERAL SUPPLEMENT (VITAMIN-MINERAL SUPPLEMENT)

PregVit Prenatal/Postpartum Vitamin-Mineral Supplement

When the time is right and you and your partner are ready to start trying to conceive a baby, talk to your doctor about the steps you need to take to ensure you stay healthy in order to provide a safe environment for the next member of your family. Proper nutrition is essential to both you and your growing baby so you can have peace of mind knowing you are giving him/her a head start to proper growth and development. Even if you feel you are eating a good diet that should support a pregnancy, most doctors will recommend a Vitamin-Mineral Supplement such as PregVit.

The Vitamins and Minerals in PregVit

The morning dose of PregVit contains Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, 2, and 6, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, iron, magnesium, zinc, pantothenic acid, and Niacinamide. The evening dose includes folic acid, Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, and calcium. The reason for taking PregVit in 2 separate doses is to avoid certain vitamins or minerals from inhibiting the actions of other vitamins and minerals as well as reduce the risk of adverse effects, such as diarrhea, nausea, and headaches. Taking PregVit does not take the place of still eating a nutritional diet before, during, or after the birth of your baby.

Why Be Concerned About the Need for Supplements?

The assurance that you are receiving sufficient nutrition to support a healthy pregnancy is the most important thing you can do to help avoid the possibility of birth defects. Neural Tube Defects (NTD) involve the brain and the spinal cord. The most commonly seen NTDs are spina bifida and anencephaly. Spina bifida involves failure of the baby’s spinal column to close completely during the first 4 weeks of pregnancy and usually results in nerve damage that effects the legs. Anencephaly is the failure for baby’s brain to develop.

What Your Doctor Needs to Know

Discuss any medical conditions and allergies you have with your doctor and provide a list of all OTC and Rx meds you currently take or use before taking PregVit. Include other supplements you take so your doctor will determine if there are changes that need to be made to avoid problems or interference with PregVit. As your doctor monitors the progress of your pregnancy, keep a list of any adverse effects you may experience as a result of taking PregVit or interactions with other medications you take.

PregVit is Not Just a Vitamin-Mineral Supplement

A prescription is required for PregVit so it should be treated as a drug to be kept out of children’s reach as there is enough iron in the pills to cause severe, possibly fatal poisoning if ingested by a child. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any meds you are taking during this time as it may cause an increased risk of side effects or interfere with how PregVit works for you.
