Mother's Choice is specifically formulated to help meet the nutritional needs of women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. During pregnancy there is an increased requirement for nutrients. Along with a wide range of vitamins and minerals Mother's Choice includes a special blend of herbs traditionally used by women for centuries. A woman's need for iron varies during pregnancy increasing during the second and third trimesters. Therefore Mother's Choice is available with and without iron. Every bottle of Mother's Choice also comes with a packet of ArcticPure™ DHA (250 mg softgels). DHA is a fatty acid that is crucial for baby's brain development from the earliest stages of pregnancy through the breastfeeding years.
