Natural Prenatal Support

Women's bodies have very special nutritional needs, more so during pregnancy; they typically need fewer calories but more nutrients than men to be at their best.

Unfortunately most women aren't getting enough necessary nutrients.

This means baby is not getting enough either!

Confused about which
vitamins to take during pregnancy?

Folic Acid {800 mcg} may reduce the risk that baby will be born with a serious neural tube defect (a birth defect involving incomplete development of the brain and spinal cord) by up to 70%.
Iron {30mg minimum} essential for a baby’s growth and development and it prevents you from having anemia.
Calcium {1200mg} baby needs calcium for growth and bone development and strength and she’ll draw that nutrient from you
Magnesium{400mg} crucial for baby’s bone development, will help you relieve muscle aches, improve energy, and aid relaxation
Vitamin D{15mcg} helps mom absorb calcium and supports healthy blood pressure, but research shows its linked to better birth outcomes, too
DHA & EPA {200mg} important for baby’s brain and eye function and may even prevent pre-term birth and depression during
pregnancy and postpartum
Vitmain B {2.6-2.8 mcg} important for a baby’s brain development and nervous system, and can maintain your energy and keep your mood balanced
Vitamin C{85-120mg} essential for immunity, especially because we don’t produce it
Choline{450-550mg} may help with cognitive abilities and IQ later in life

For over 57 years Shaklee has been leading the way in natural health products and sustainable business practices

 Because the nutritional needs during pregnancy and lactation are unique to this stage of a women's life, we strongly urge all women who are pregnant or nursing to discuss the use of dietary supplements with their obstetrician

 I was not fortune enough to have know about Shaklee during my pregnancies. I do remember struggling at times with morning sickness (morning, noon and night). The many Shaklee Moms that I have introduced Shaklee to have all told me that they feel much better after consuming Shaklee protein as a healthy start to their day.
