What are Pregnacare Original tablets

Pregnacare Original tablets are a daily vitamin and mineral tablet which is designed to support you throughout your pregnancy and beyond. They’re ideal for all stages of pregnancy, helping you to be sure that you and your baby are getting the essential nutrients you need as your pregnancy goes on. These tablets are:

  • Vegetarian friendly
  • Gluten free
  • Yeast free
  • Gelatine free
  • Free from preservatives and artificial colours

 

How will these supplements support my wellbeing during pregnancy?

Pregnacare Original tablets contain 10µg of Vitamin D, which is recommended by the NHS for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Vitamin D helps to control the levels of phosphate and calcium in the body, helping to support healthy teeth and bones. They also contain 400µg of folic acid, which is also recommended by the NHS in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy and can be used throughout pregnancy. Folic acid encourages healthy development of the spine in foetuses and reduces the risks of your baby developing neural tube defects, such as spina bifida.

 

Which vitamins and minerals are in these tablets?

Pregnacare Original tablets contain vitamins and minerals which help to support your wellbeing during your pregnancy and beyond. These include:

  • Vitamin D – 10µg
  • Vitamin E – 4mg α-TE
  • Vitamin K – 70µg
  • Vitamin C – 70mg
  • Vitamin B1 (Thiamin) – 3mg
  • Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) – 2mg
  • Vitamin B3 (Niacin) – 20mg NE
  • Vitamin B6 – 10mg
  • Folic acid – 400µg
  • Vitamin B12 – 6µg
  • Biotin – 150µg
  • Pantothenic acid – 6mg
  • Magnesium – 150mg
  • Iron – 17mg
  • Zinc – 15mg
  • Copper – 1000µg
  • Selenium – 30µg
  • Iodine – 150µg
  • Betacarotene (natural source) – 2mg

 

Can I take these tablets if I’m taking other medication?

If you are taking other medication, then you will usually be able to take Pregnacare Original without any problems. However, you should speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using this product if you are taking medication to be sure that they won’t interact. Do not take this product if you are taking anticoagulants, or blood thinners, as these tablets contain vitamin K.

 

Can I continue taking these supplements after I’ve had my baby?
