Vitabiotics Pregnacare Breast-Feeding Dual Pack - 56 Tablets and 28 Capsules 4.7 5 19 19
Outstanding all round vitamin product I have been using Pregnacare pregnancy for years pre-conception, during pregnancy and post-pregnancy and have to say I never got ill during my two pregnancies. I also found this product particularly helpful when breastfeeding as I noticed when I missed a vitamin as my ligaments would hurt and I would feel rundown and lethargic. I have just had my second little one and decided to try to the newly launched Pregnacare breast feeding dual pack and must say this seems to be even better than the pregnancy version. I did not take Pregnacare plus during my pregnancies as I was worried about the Omega 3 but it is great when breastfeeding. I have had little sleep with my newborn but I swear this vitamin is helping me avoid getting rundown and ill. Although this is quite an expensive vitamin supplement I do think it is worth the money especially if bought on the 3 for 2 offers. October 10, 2013
Peace of mind My wife took these for a year and she was very happy. It's good to know you and your baby are getting the right vitamins for a healthy life. October 13, 2013
Great Pregnancy vitamin range! These tablets are great. I have been taking them for a long time now. I started with the pre-conception ones then onto the pregnancy and now the breast feeding tablets. They are great to know you are getting a good amount of vitamins to keep me and my baby healthy and feeling good. I would definitely recommend all of the pregnacare tablets. November 3, 2013
