Natural vitality calm pregnancy

I often get emails with questions about what supplements are most important to take during pregnancy and nursing, and which ones should be avoided. As someone who has been pregnant, nursing, or both continually since I got married, I’ve seen first hand how supplements can make a pregnancy (and delivery) easier!
Each woman’s dietary and nutrient needs will vary, but as a general rule, a nutrient-dense diet is the most important factor in her ability to get enough vitamins and minerals during pregnancy.
Other high nutrient foods like homemade bone broth, soups, fermented vegetables like homemade sauerkraut, fruit (especially berries) and green smoothies are also great for pregnancy and nursing.
The supplement folic acid is commonly recommended, but there is substantial difference between folic acid (the synthetic form) and folate (the natural form).
There is some debate on if a full multivitamin prenatal is necessary during pregnancy or not. There is a lot of emerging research that Vitamin D can help reduce the risk of many pregnancy related complications including gestational diabetes. Just as deficiency of some things can be dangerous during pregnancy, consumption or contact with other things can be harmful to a developing baby. I stand by my article: folate is the superior supplement, as it is the natural form of the vitamin.


Animal proteins are the most complete protein and the most complete source during pregnancy. Organ meats from grass fed sources are also wonderful for pregnancy and nursing and can help reduce the chance of anemia. While I don’t routinely recommend taking a multivitamin, pregnancy and nursing is one exception.
I think the benefits definitely outweigh the risks during and before early pregnancy, but I’m hesitant to take such high levels continuously. New research is possibly linking synthetic folic acid to miscarriage (and other pregnancy complications) for this reason **for this demographic of women.
In this case, using a natural progesterone cream in the second half of the cycle and for the first couple of months of pregnancy will help sustain the pregnancy until the placenta starts making progesterone. They help prevent the constipation that can sometimes occur during pregnancy, and are great for making sure nursing moms are getting enough vitamins. A deficiency in a vitamin or mineral won’t make a tremendous, immediate impact on an adult in most cases, but during the intensive developmental phases of pregnancy, a nutrient deficiency can have lasting consequences for baby. Proper magnesium levels also help mom’s tissue growth and recovery during pregnancy and may help baby receive more nutrition through the placenta.


Just look for a natural progesterone cream with no added herbs (like Dong quai) and no soy.
Sources like healthy meats, coconut oil and coconut products, olive oil, avocados, and nuts are especially good during pregnancy (peanuts are not nuts!). It is very difficult to get enough magnesium from food sources anymore, so I typically recommend magnesium oil on the skin, Natural Calm in the evening before bed, or an ionic supplement. Folate is one supplement that has been extensively studied for use in pregnancy and is extremely effective at preventing neural tube defects.
Probiotics also help mom avoid illness and constipation during pregnancy, and might reduce the risk of Group B strep. In total, a pregnant woman shouldn’t exceed 500 mg from all sources unless severely deficient.
After two high risk pregnancies with complications and a miscarriage, I wish I would have known this sooner.
