If you are concerned about the health of yourself or your baby, talk to your health practitioner. If you have pre-existing thyroid conditions, seek advice from your medical practitioner before taking this medicine. This medicine contains selenium which is toxic in high doses.

The period prior to conception and the first eight weeks of pregnancy – before you may even realise you’re expecting – are critical for your baby’s healthy development. Research has shown that key nutrients, like folate and iron, are essential for a healthy pregnancy and can reduce the chance of birth defects. During the gestation period, your baby’s vital organs and nervous system are developing rapidly, so taking a scientifically formulated prenatal supplement lays a strong foundation to support healthy growth and function in utero and beyond.
Reaching a nutritional status requires consistent intake, which for some may include a mix of a healthy diet and supplementation. It’s important to help maintain essential nutrient levels before pregnancy, since those initial first weeks of pregnancy are critical (and someone might not even realize they're expecting yet). That's why eating a mostly-balanced diet — and starting a prenatal multivitamin early — can have a positive impact. Nevertheless, while nutrition plays a foundational role during pregnancy, the approach shouldn’t vary all that much from supporting the body with a healthy diet during any other life stage.See the research
