So it’s a good idea to take a multivitamin, but you
still haven’t said which one.
I found that pregnancy multivitamins are all quite similar in terms of
No matter which one you choose, as long as you take it properly, you
are going to get most, if not all, of the nutrients that you and your baby
But they are not equal in terms of things like how easy they are to take,
what they taste like and how much they cost, so when you are selecting your
prenatal vitamin these factors need to come into consideration as well.
Today we are reviewing Nature’s Own Pregnancy Platinum.
This multivitamin is available most places, including supermarkets and
major pharmacies. If you are a bit nervous about taking tablets or capsules
then you might need to get your courage up a bit; these are on the hefty side.

I found while taking them that I felt pretty good, all things
considered, so I feel like this product did it’s job.
With pregnancy you have
good and bad days, as you can have good and bad pregnancies, and it’s hard to
know what specific horrible symptoms you can attribute to what.
I had three
babies and they were all healthy, full-term and good sized. I didn’t suffer
from any pregnancy related conditions and had no side effects from the

While they are listed as around $50 a bottle, for four months’ worth,
you can very easily shop around and get a better price.
At the time of writing
this, Chemist Warehouse listed them for half that.
With everything else you are
shelling out for right now including all medical bills and expensive baby
goods, a more reasonably priced vitamin is a bit of a bonus.
Let’s take a look at the different aspects of this multivitamin.

are growing a baby.
When taking this product you will need to supplement the
supplement with another supplement or with some food high in iron.

This is not the cheapest prenatal vitamin on the market. At $55 for 180
capsules, Blackmores Gold are cheaper, and also contain iron.
There are more
expensive products as well; in terms of price, this one lands around the middle
of the pack.
Brand Strength 6/10
Again, in terms of brand strength, Nature’s Own lands around the

Blackmores and Elevit.

Considering that you still need to source your iron from somewhere,
this product has medium value for money.
(If you can get it on special then
this is obviously a much better deal, and therefore would be better value!)
a pregnancy vitamin is does work fine however, and is very good value for money
given the hard work it does and how important it is to you and your baby.
Ease of Use 7/10
The capsules are large, but slide down relatively easy and don’t have a
taste or start to dissolve.
There is no weird aftertaste.
Some vitamins catch

All I will say is that you definitely should be taking a multivitamin
of some kind.
The Nature’s Own Pregnancy Platinum works well and won’t break
the bank, so I highly recommend you take at least this as the minimum.
