the differences in prenatal vitamins

Questions often arise about the differences in prenatal vitamins.

Rx vs OTC. If an Rx doesn't specify a brand, choose a generic you have in stock. Double-check ingredients first...most women will need one that has at least 600 mcg of folic acid and 27 mg of iron.

OTC prenatals (One A Day, Nature Made, etc) are also okay...and may cost less. Even chewing two Flintstones with Iron tabs provides enough folic acid and iron for most pregnant women.
