Nutritional Insurance for Mom & Baby
  • 1,000 mcg of folic acid to support healthy fetal development
  • 200 mg of DHA vital for baby’s brain and eye development
  • 1,200 mg of bone-strengthening calcium
  • 400 IU of vitamin D-3 to enhance calcium absorption
Prenatal Formula – 60 Caplets, Calcium 600 – 30 Caplets, DHA 200 – 30 Softgels

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 developmentGNC 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.

Multivitamin use around the time of conception could be a safe and simple strategy to improve pregnancy outcomes

Prenatal multivitamins help pregnant moms to fill gaps in their diet and meet their own-and their baby's-special nutritional needs. Now researchers have found a link between taking multivitamins around the time of conception and prevention of early births and births of babies born smaller than normal for their gestational age.

Nearly 36,000 women participating in the Danish National Birth Cohort, a large ongoing study of pregnant women and their children, were included in the study. All of them reported using multivitamins, just folic acid supplements, or no supplements in the 12 weeks around conception: 4 weeks before the last menstrual period until 8 weeks after.

Multivitamins improve the odds

The women were followed until after delivery and were monitored for preterm births (delivery before week 37 of pregnancy) and births of babies that were small for gestational age (weight, length, or head circumference below the tenth percentile for the number of weeks of pregnancy). These are important measures of newborn health because infants born preterm or small for gestational age are at greater risk for a wide variety of health and developmental problems.

When the researchers looked at birth outcomes and vitamin use, they found the following:

  • Taking multivitamins around the time of conception was associated with a 17% lower risk of small-for-gestational-age births in all women. This effect was strongest in women who took multivitamins in the weeks after conception.
  • In women who were not overweight prior to pregnancy, taking multivitamins around conception was associated with a 16% lower risk of preterm birth.
  • Multivitamin use did not affect risk of preterm delivery in women who were overweight prior to pregnancy. (These women are already less likely to deliver preterm.)
  • Taking folic acid alone had no effect on risk of preterm or small-for-gestational-age births.

Having a healthy pregnancy and birth

"It may be that multivitamin use around the time of conception could be a safe and simple strategy to improve pregnancy outcomes," the study's authors said in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, while pointing out that more research is needed to show this definitively.

In addition to a multivitamin, there are a few other key supplements that you can consider taking during pregnancy:

  • Omega-3 fatty acids. We get these from eating fish, but due to pollutants like mercury and PCBs, pregnant women should eat fish judiciously (perhaps no more than 2 helpings a week). Supplementing with omega-3 fats during pregnancy has been shown to help ensure full-term births and healthy-sized newborns.
  • Vitamin D. Most of us don't get enough sun all year to maintain healthy levels of vitamin D, and some research suggests that pregnant women with low vitamin D levels are more likely to deliver preterm.
  • Iron, folic acid, and zinc. Low levels of these nutrients during pregnancy are associated with poor birth outcomes. If you don't take a prenatal multivitamin, remember to stay on top of these nutrients.
