    Any recommendations on a gluten-free, food-based prenatal vitamin?

    Also, my midwife wants to start me on a calcium supplement. Looking
    at the ingredients, it contains barley grass. I know barley has gluten,
    but is barley grass ok?

     

    Thanks!

    Avoid the barley grass ingredient.  I use Thorne Pre-natals.  Very high quality product.

    Hi Dr. O.,

    I started taking the Thorne prenatals, and noticed they caused nausea. I was off and on with them to test if they were causing it, and they were.

    Now that I’m pregnant, I decided to try getting back on them again, and my morning sickness was unbearable after taking them. I also decided to only take 2 instead of the recommended 3, just to ease back into it. I did a little digging online and found that it’s probably the high dose of iron. Do you have any alternative suggestions?

    Thanks for your help. It’s always appreciated!
