These are great as you know you are getting everything you and baby need, especially if meals aren’t staying down! However they do need to be taken on a full stomach and I found this difficult when my all day morning sickness was at it’s worst and I took just a folic acid supplement on those days. They can make sickness worse if not taken with or after food.
They are also very pricey, tho Tesco often have them in the 3 for2 offers.
Overall would take these over any other brand
Although quite expensive, you can often get them on offer. It provides all needed for mother and baby in just one pill which is good. I think they helped, specially in those first months where you feel so drained. Definitely recommend!
It’s peace of mind knowing me and baby are getting all the goodness we need! Promotes development of the brain and eyes. Tablets are labelled with the days of the week so you know if you have missed one.
The two tablets include all the extra little sparks you need during pregnancy, this in mind unfortunately they are a large tablet and can be difficult to swallow.
Have to shop around for them as they fluctuate in price greatly! Some places around £10 others £15-£17.
Previous packaging had helpful mon-sun markings that with baby brain are very useful! Although recent packs I’ve purchased haven’t had this.
Great tablets as all the vitamins are in 2 tablets but they are quite big tablets and aren't the nicest tasting. They can come across a bit expensive when there are shop own brands but I have been using these since week 6 and wouldn't change to a cheaper brand.
Cost is high compared to similar products on the market

Although costly (boots / Superdrug usually have some kind if 3 for 2 offer) this is a great product. Everything you need throughout pregnancy in one little pill (plus your omegas capsule). Can't beat it. Only advice I was given by my midwife was increasing folic acid intake for the first 4 months as I'm overweight.
These pregnacare packs only have the added omega tablets as a difference compared to the original pack. Slightly more expensive. I got a number of samples packs from bounty and midwife of these and quite honestly I used to eat a lot of fish anyways so I didn't actually bother buying these but they are great for women who have no fish in their diets as it supplements all those important missed nutrients. Vitamin tablets are quite large so sometimes I struggled to swallow them and they are pricey.
Took these everyday leading up to birth. I have colitis and so needed all the extra vitamins and extra help I could get during pregnancy. Tablets are rather big, I’m not very good at taking tablets, I found I choked on these quite a bit, but I am a big sissy.
No taste which was a plus!
Overall good, price fine.
This supplement gives you all the key vitamins and minerals you need to develop a healthy baby. Before I started taking this my blood results showed severe anemia with a real lack of vitamin D. I have been taking this since the 4th week of my pregnancy and it has really helped me get my essential vitamins back up.
The only downside I have found is that it doesn't help with the nausea as I find it makes that slightly worse. Nevertheless, I have continued to take it as I'm weighing up the benefits I get from it.
I find it reasonably priced and a trust worthy product.
These are really quite expensive compared to nhs and own brand vitamins. If vitamins are your thing and you get extra peace of mind taking name brand things then by all means these are good but if your happy with the cheaper alternative then these really do cost a lot.
For me these were pretty reasonably priced considering its everything you need to keep your baby healthy during pregnancy but after my first midwife appointment she gave me other tablets for free which contain folic acid and Vitamin D, which is all she said they recommend for pregnant ladies.
I found them fairly easy to swallow even though I'm not a huge fan of tablets.
The days are easily labelled on the foil tablet packet
It is costly and there are 2 tablets to swallow

These vitamins are a great addition to my pregnancy routine. My midwife said these were the best around. I did try the Pregnacare Max but found they made me feel sick so swapped to these. My hair and nails are in excellent condition and incredibly strong, I’m reassured that my baby will be growing strong and healthy too.
I started taking these before I was pregnant as I had heard that was best and have continued since becoming pregnant.
I am really reassured that everything me and baby need is in these tablets. I like the addition of the Omega 3 as even if you do eat fish getting the right amount needed can be really tricky. I now know that even if I have a day where I feel a little off and don't want to eat too much I am always getting what I need.
Only downside is the tablets are quite large in size for people who don't like taking tablets.
I took these at the beginning and at the end of my pregnancy because i wanted to have the omega 3 pills, especially because i don't like to eat fish. So they are a good replacement if you are in the same situation like me. Price it is a bit too much, in pharmacy you can find these pills at more than 10£!
Contains all essential vitamins, minerals and Omega 3

I have used these supplements since I found out I was pregnant and I think they’ve helped together with my diet to provide both baby and I with everything we need. My energy levels are good and I have not become anaemic. They are expensive though.
Gave me peace of mind throughout my pregnancy. Suffered with severe morning sickness till 24weeks. So great in the early days to keep me topped up in the essentials. My skin and nails are the best they have ever been.
These were life savers at my first pregnancy and I am taking them again on my second. My hair and skin didn't have a problem as everyone in the family did so I was really pleased with them. Easy to take as well. A bit pricey but they are great. I really recommend it.
