PRENATAL PROGRAM: GNC Prenatal Program is a daily multivitamin program that provides nutritional support for both mother and baby before, during and after pregnancy. Pregnancy is a special time in a woman’s life and an important time to be mindful not only of your individual nutritional needs, but the nutritional needs of your baby as well. Maternal nutrition before and during pregnancy affects both your well-being and your infant’s growth. As your baby develops through the early phases of life, your nutritional needs will also increase. After delivery, you need an adequate diet rich in essential nutrients such as calcium and folic acid to support nursing and replace depleted nutrient store. This delicately blended multivitamin offers supplemental nutritional support for both you and your baby.
  • Prenatal Formula A delicately blended multivitamin that provides you and your baby with supplemental levels of essential nutrients.

    This special formula features 1,000 mcg of folic acid critical during the earliest weeks of pregnancy when a baby’s organs are forming. Adequate intake of folic acid in a healthy diet before and during early pregnancy may reduce the risk of birth defects of the brain and spinal cord.

    This formula also provides 600 mg of bone-strengthening calcium and 400 IU of vitamin D-3 to enhance calcium absorption, as well as iron to support placental and fetal needs and a mother’s increased blood volume.
  • Calcium 600 Provides an additional 600 mg of bone-strengthening calcium which is vital during pregnancy, especially during the their trimester when fetal bones begin to calcify. If a mother’s calcium level drops, her body can pull calcium from her bones resulting in loss of bone density.
  • DHA 200 Includes DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), an omega-3 fatty acid naturally present in fish. DHA is the predominant structural fatty acid in the brain and retina and is passed through the placenta to the baby and then, following childbirth, it is passed through breast milk.

    Supplementing with DHA helps pregnant and nursing mothers replenish DHA necessary for a baby’s healthy brain and eye function development

    GNC DHA is ultra pure and natural. It has been purified and manufactured for freshness. We use the ICP-MS (Inductively Couple Plasma Mass Spectroscopy) method to verify the absence of contaminants such as lead, arsenic, mercury and PCBs.
A complete nutritional program should be followed prior to conception through pregnancy and maintained while breastfeeding. Talk to your doctor about adding GNC Prenatal Program to your daily nutritional regimen.

Caused extreme nausea for me!
I was on this prenatal vitamin program for about a month, and that month was horrible. I had almost round-the-clock, extreme, practically debilitating nausea. I attributed this to first trimester morning sickness and thought nothing of the prenatal vitamins, till I heard from someone that certain prenatal vitamins are harsher on the stomach than others. I stopped taking these for a few days and noticed almost immediate relief. Of course, I still had some morning sickness but it was normal, manageable, and temporary. To this day I have trouble swallowing pills because of my awful experience with these. Others may be fine as everyone is different, but based on my experience I don't recommend these vitamins.

Love it, has all the vitamins I need
I am pregnant with my first child. I researched all over what vitamins and how much of them I needed since my first prenatal appointment isn't until a few weeks but I wanted to start on them already.

Thankfully the prenatal program included all the different vitamins I needed and the correct amount of them I needed too. I've taken them with food and have had no issues like I heard alot of prenatal supplements give you. So I will use this vitamin throughout my pregnancy and for the first months as it suggests :-)

Great Program!
This is an all in one prenatal program. It includes 1 bottle prenatal pills with iron. 1 bottle calcium, and 1 bottle of omega 3. A complete 30 day system! The only con I see is that the calcium and prenatals are HUGE! Kinda makes me gag. But, all the other ones are huge also haha. You take 2 prenatal vitamins to equal 1 serving. *REMEMBER* don't take the calcium at the same time as the prenatal because iron containing products counteract the calcium (it makes the calcium not work)... so, take 2 prenatals in the morning and the calcium and omega 3 at night.

Excellent Prenatal program
I was really happy to see that this multi-prenatal vitamin contains 1000mc folic acid in it, which is the amount recommended by my doctor and pharmacist and it was also the quantity suggested that I read in a book for pregnant women. The fact was that I went everywhere else loooking for a prenatal vitamin but never did I find one that contained the 1000mcg folic acid in it like this one at GNC. And also to remark that they also sell the folic acid 1000mcg by itself, which is a quantity that I never seen somewhere else in all the places I went to look for. And GNC was the last place I went, thinking they also would not have it, but to my surprise they DO. I'm very sastisfied with the product.

Great Prenatal Vitamin Choice
I started taking these supplements before I became pregnant. There were no ill side effects and they generally improved my overall health and well-being. Once I became pregnant my doctor advised to keep taking these as they included everything they would normally subscribe, including the extra calcium and the DHA.

All of the essential nutrients needed.
After discovering that I was prego with twins my husband went to great lengths to research all the essential nutrients needed for developing healthy babies. I was surprised that many of the top shelf health food / natural brands did not have everything in their supplements and when they did they were very high cost. GNC prenatal program had all nutrients at the right levels and at a reasonable cost. Not to mention if you sign up as a gold member you are sent coupons and deals which are a real bonus.

My friends in China they all asked me to buy for them. I believe it's good for women and the baby.

Highly reccomend these!
These supplements are wonderful. They have everything your growing baby needs. I compared the vitamins in this product to the march of dimes recommended amounts of each vitamin and found that this product comes closest to meeting them all than any other prenatal vitamin I found. Even the prescription ones! In fact I ran out of my GNC prenatals and for two days I took a sample prescription prenatal vitamin that my doctor had given me and I immediately noticed that I was having intense cravings for chocolate and dairy (did not have any cravings before) which I believe is because they do not contain calcium. When I compared the labels calcium wasn't the only vitamin the prescription lacked! On my next trip to GNC I bought 9 boxes of these prenatals. I'm 36 weeks pregnant now and will not go a day without my GNC vitamins! The one consideration you do have to keep in mind is that you should take he calcium supplement at least two hours apart from the multivitamin because calcium will block absorption of iron in your body. Good luck mommas! Take this supplement your baby deserves it!

Great So Far, So Good!
These prenatals are super easy to get down. The abudance of vitamins cannot be found in other prenatals with a comparable price point. I am 6 months pregnant, and all my levels are great. The first month I used the prescription vitamins prescribed by my doctor...they cost me $110 AFTER insurance! And the vitamins had no where near the DV% these offer. All in all...these are wonderful prenatals, plenty of the vitamins that are needed (esp. extra calcium & DHA)and for the price...I'M SOLD straight through breastfeeding as well. Can't go wrong!
