Hello, I’m Katy Bradbury, a qualified Nutritional Therapist, Private Health Visitor and qualified nurse. I have worked in Women’s Health, Maternal and Children’s Health for many years.
Today’s podcast is titled “Which Prenatals should I be Taking?” Today, I am talking about the differences between four of the hundreds of prenatal multivitamin products available on the market. I will compare prices, ingredients, volumes, forms and additives and discusses some of the pros and cons of each. Please remember to consult a health professional before starting any new supplements.
