As a mom in the new millennium, it can be a hard job to be a mom, stay healthy and prepare when you have a new baby on the way. That is one of the many reasons we are teaming up with Vitafol® to share information on a great way to stay healthy during your pregnancy and get #babybodyready !
Many moms in this day and age get tons of information from the internet, their doctors, doulas, midwives and more. Back in my mom’s day, they mostly just took the word of their doctors and didn’t ask too many questions. Millennial moms are definitely the researching kind, and I am extremely guilty of doing a lot of that!
When I found out I was preggers this time around, I did not want to go through all the complications I have had before so my main goal was to get healthy be healthy and stay healthy all throughout this pregnancy and afterwards! I researched doctors, midwives, foods to eat, and prenatals that could help me to give my growing bean all she needs even before she arrives.
It’s no secret that moms today parent in much different ways from their own mothers. Terms like helicopter parenting or free-range parenting just didn’t exist in the 70’s and 80’s. If you think these differences start the moment a millennial gives birth, think again. Even the way millennial moms approach pregnancy is different than how their mothers did it. These days having the capabilities to do your own research is one of the many differences you might come across.
I had heard about Vitafol through a friend, and then decided to ask my OBGYN about it since it is a prescription prenatal vitamin. I know, I know, you are probably thinking that only moms with complications, or some other issue are the only ones that take prescribed prenatal vitamins, but that simply isn’t true! What Millennial moms are learning is that prescription prenatal vitamins (Rx PNVs) can be for every woman, in every stage of pregnancy—whether just beginning to think about starting a family, actively trying, newly pregnant, very pregnant or even after baby has arrived. Healthy pregnancies can benefit from taking a prescription prenatal vitamin. For me personally, I prefer to have the Doc call in mine rather than wade through the many, many options on the shelf! Honestly, who can choose from all those bottles, and boxes and know you are getting something that has everything your growing baby needs?
For me, it was a simple choice since taking any kind of pills is hard for me. They always make me gag, and then the dreaded chain reaction starts (you know what I’m talking about mommy’s). I have always been better off taking gummy vitamins than any other, and they are kind of fun, plus they make me feel like a kid for just a minute, lol! When I asked my mom about her experiences with vitamins, she said they didn’t have a lot of options and if she did take anything while pregnant it was always what her doctor gave her, and she never questioned it. My response was “who does that, mom?!” She said that in those days you trusted your doctor and didn’t ask a lot of questions and they didn’t have the resources we do in this day and age. It kind of makes me sad for her a bit, but she told me she was always healthy during pregnancy, and didn’t have any issues so I guess they were doing something right back then. I mean hey, look at me, I turned out pretty awesome!!
Between asking my mom, and grandma about their experiences, and using all of the available tools such as the internet, my doctors, and a few close friends, I have found that taking vitamins isn’t just something you can do, it is vital to the health of your growing baby. You should be sure to get a prenatal vitamin that is right for you, and with Vitafol, they have 3 different options to choose from which can help making that decision even easier.
Vitafol Gummies (which are my personal fave), are complete nutrition with almost twice as much folic acid as over-the-counter gummies. Unlike over-the-counter gummies, Vitafol Gummies also contain iron. They are delicious and they are gluten and lactose-free.
Who knew getting Baby Body Ready would taste so good? Ask your doctor for the only gummy prenatal vitamin available by prescription.
Vitafol Ultra, which offers all of the necessary nutrients needed during pregnancy and is available in one of the smallest capsules you will find! They offer complete nutrition that’s trusted by women everywhere to get Baby Body Ready. Ask your doctor for the #1 prescription prenatal vitamin available.
Vitafol Fe+, for moms that need extra iron! This highly tolerable, easy-to-swallow soft gel is designed for enhanced iron absorption with an optional daily stool softener for flexibility and improved tolerability. If you need more iron, ask your doctor to get baby body ready with Vitafol Fe+.
You can ask your doctor which one is right for you at your next visit, but in the meantime you can visit their website HERE to grab a money saving coupon, and to read up on the different varieties they offer, and to get more great information!
