When I wanted to start taking prenatal vitamins I wasn’t sure if vegan prenatal vitamins even existed. I’m here to tell you that they do! I started taking them one to two months before trying to get pregnant. That is what Modern Fertility recommends for the health of you and your baby.
The folic acid is the thing in prenatal vitamins that is really important for women who are pregnant and women who are trying to get pregnant. Before getting pregnant I visited my gynecologist and showed her the prenatal vitamins I was taking and she said they looked great.
All of the following pills are vegan, which means that they are free from dairy, gelatin, meat, fish, and any other animal products.
Here are 10 prenatal vitamins for vegans you should take before, during, and after your pregnancy while you are breastfeeding:
1. Beli Women Prenatal Multi Vitamin
These prenatal vitamins are good to use before pregnancy, while pregnant, and postpartum. They are gluten free. allergen free, and dairy free. They boost fertility, help reduce nausea, and so much more.
2. Deva Vegan Prenatal Multivitamins
These are the pills I use. I have been taking them everyday for about a year and a half. I take them every morning with breakfast and they’re not too hard on my stomach. Other than while pregnant, I have only thrown them up once because I didn’t eat a big breakfast.
I took these while trying to get pregnant, during my whole pregnancy, and I’ve continued taking them since then because I’ve been pumping and nursing since my babies were born. I buy these from Amazon.
3. Naturelo Prenatal Multivitamin
This vitamin is non-GMO and gluten-free. Vegan prenatal vitamins with DHA are important, and this one has DHA. It also has folate and iron in it. These are capsules rather than tablets. A benefit of capsules is that they dissolve fast and get absorbed quickly into your bloodstream.
4. Mama Bird Prenatal Multivitamin
These vitamins are made from 100% natural whole foods. They are to be taken once a day.
5. No Fish No Fish Vegan Prenatal
The DHA in these vitamins is from Algae rather than from an animal source. If you’re unfamiliar with what DHA is, read this post. These are to be used during pregnancy and lactation. They are soft gels. They don’t have any artificial colors in them.
6. Nature’s Way Alive! Prenatal Multivitamin
If you’re wanting a gummy vitamin, then this vegan prenatal vitamin is perfect for you. It does not contain any gelatin, which is hard to find for gummies.
7. Garden of Life Organic Prenatal Multivitamin
These plant based vegan prenatal vitamins are made from certified organic whole foods. These organic prenatals are certified vegan, certified gluten-free, and non-GMO project verified.
8. Hairtamin Mom Complete Prenatal
The pink bottle for these vegan prenatals is so cute! They also have hair nutrition added to them. I think this is awesome for the postpartum hair loss period. I lost a lot of hair from about 3-6 months after I had my babies and would have loved using this vitamin if I had known about it.
9. Garden of Life Organic Prenatal Gummies
This is another good option if you’re looking for gummy vitamins. These ones are free of gluten, soy, and dairy. They don’t have any artificial colors or flavors. They are kosher, certified vegan, and non-GMO project verified.
10. Garden of Life Prenatal Once Day
Some prenatal vitamins have to be taken twice a day, so it’s really nice that this one is just once a day. They also support digestion.
