I was finding it very hard to swallow the big pregnacare tablets because of nausea and vomiting- sometimes even the thought of the tablet would make me feel sick.
I bought this last week and have been mixing it into my drink after lunch- it is soooo much easier to take down. It doesn't make me feel sick at all but the after taste is slightly metal-like (probably the iron.) I would defo recommend it esp for those that struggled like me to swallow the tabs or hated the smell of them.
I was given two of these bottles by a family member who is midwife and I thought they'd be easier to take than the tablets as the tablets can be hard to swallow due to their size but I struggled with the liquid form as I hated the taste and much preferred the tablet form instead. Price is very expensive for aswell for liquid vitamins but its great for someone who struggles with tablets. Also this is very sticky, used to get it down my front quite a lot as I would over fill the spoon too much in my eagerness to finish the bottle quicker.
Has a pleasant taste, easier if the tablets give you nausea
Can be overpriced to other mums to be.

I’ve been using this throughout my pregnancy. At first I started out with the tablets but my morning sickness would make it really difficult to swallow the tablets. This is great. Does what it’s supposed to do, tastes ok. Only fault I can give this is the price. Some mums who maybe struggle can find this to be a bit more expensive compared to the tablets and other brands.
I knew I wanted to take Pregnacare as it is highly rated and includes all the vitamins I needed. However I have bought the Pregnacare Tablet Plus to use once I have used this up as unfortunately the liquid doesn’t include the additional Omega. Price wise, the liquid seems the best priced product from the Pregnacare range. I don’t have a problem taking tablets but the tablets are pretty large so I opted to take the liquid for ease, might as well treat myself! I even quite like the taste, tastes rather orangey and it’s is very easy to take, just like calpol. Soon as I began taking this I felt a lot healthier too so I recommend this product.
Liquid form of tablets, no problems with swallowing
Taste not the best

In the first few weeks of my pregnancy this liquid supplement was really great. As soon as the general nausea kicked in, it became harder and harder to take due to the quite strong taste of it. However, it’s definitely easier for someone like me who struggles with tablets (especially the huge prenatal vitamin tablets!) it has been really helpful.
I do recommend this to anyone starting prenatal who struggles with sealing tablets- it’s so reassuring to know you’re getting the right vitamins and minerals necessary to help your little one grow!
It is great that pregnacare make a product In liquid for so I had the peace of mind that while I couldn’t take these products and folic acid in the tablet form I could take in the liquid form not many companies think of people who are unable to take tablets. It tasted nice for a medicine as well.
I bought the pregnacare liquid as I found the tablets difficult to take as they are quite large. I also suffered terrible sickness during pregnancy and i would that the tablets either set off my gag reflex or i was sick before i had chance to digest them. I felt the liquid would be better for me. It is much easier to swallow but it tastes horrible. I did find if i had a drink ready i could wash it down and it didnt set my gag reflex off! Wish it tasted nicer! I choose this brand as i wanted a well balanced intake of vitamins when pregnant and i felt this covered me well. I stayed healthy during pregnancy so i would like to say it helped!
We bought this product as I really struggled with the pill form. Did the job perfectly. To start with I found the liquid had an orangey taste to it, but after a while it did become quite ‘hard to swallow’.
Decided to take these instead of the tablets since they were easier to swallow. The tablets were enormous, just couldn't swallow them. Plus when I was taking the tablets, I had some stomachache and my stomach seemed fine while I took the liquid. It's on the pricier end and isn't so tasty.
While I was pregnant I couldn’t have the tablets as by body just didn’t agree and made me sick every time I had them, so this was a great alternative as I could have in the morning after breakfast and keep my food down, and it’s not too thick like some of the others :)
