The importance of taking a prenatal vitamin is probably one of the first things that your health care provider brought up at your first prenatal appointment. Though you might have the best intentions and follow through for the first few weeks, life starts to get in the way. Whether it be taking care of older children, working outside of the house all day, or keeping up with family activities and appointments our schedules as moms are full and hectic. Sometimes remembering to focus on our own wellness by taking our vitamins just isn’t as high on the “To Do” list and that small task gets lost in the shuffle.
Not to mention that with pregnancy comes some unpleasant symptoms like nausea, indigestion, constipation, etc., that you may well already know about through experience. Swallowing a big old pill (or three) to get the proper vitamin amounts may be about as appealing as swallowing a bowling ball.
Incorporating your vitamin in to your routine means you won’t need to worry about forgetting this small way to care for yourself because you’ll be getting what you need by one small addition to daily tasks you are already doing. And once this becomes habit you’ll be set for when baby is here and needing to restore the nutrients in your body that you just depleted by growing your little bundle of joy and going through the birth process.
Remember that bowling ball sized pill you didn’t want to swallow? Forget that!
Premama has got you covered with multivitamin supplement powdered drink mixes for women who are conceiving, pregnant, or lactating. It has everything you need in a prenatal pill including equal or higher levels of folic acid than leading OTC prenatals and Omega-3 fatty acids and non-constipating iron that is usually only found in prescription prenatals. but comes in a convenient powdered form. It can be incorporated in to your daily routine by adding it to your favorite breakfast smoothie or just mixed right in to your bottle of water while on the go.
The single serving packets are so convenient to fit right in your purse or diaper bag so that you don’t need to worry about having forgotten to take your vitamin before leaving the house because you can just mix it up on the go.

These are perfect for those unpleasant GI symptoms during pregnancy and help with constipation, bloating, and immune support. They come in a yummy vanilla caramel flavor and are sure to please your picky pregnant taste buds. I’m not currently pregnant but that won’t stop me from enjoying both the sweet taste and the digestive benefits. These little fiber chews are perfect for anyone looking for a naturally made fiber and probiotic supplement.
Breastfeeding mamas, rejoice! There is now a delicious way to boost and maintain your milk supply without the herbal taste of teas that turn a lot of woman off. I personally enjoy herbal tea but I’ve had a ton of woman contact me in regards to past breastfeeding posts saying they hate herbal teas and tinctures so what else can they try. Until now I haven’t been able to offer much advice except to tell them to try icing their herbal tea. Well, Ta Da! The Premama Lactation drink mix is BERRY flavored. It still contains the regular breastfeeding herbs you’ve read about like fennel, fenugreek, and blessed thistle, but absolutely zero of the herbal taste. I like drinking this right in my water but you could also add it in to a breakfast fruit smoothie and be on your way.
Most importantly, I found this product to work! After having a stomach bug a few weeks ago I lost about 3 ounces per day while pumping. After drinking the Premama Lactation mix for a few days and being diligent about getting my 100oz of water per day I was able to get my supply back up to where it was in a pretty painless way (meaning I didn’t do any extra pumping!).
Overall, I’m really impressed with the Premama line of products. I very much appreciate that they source some non-GMO ingredients, test for heavy metals, use vegetarian and vegan ingredients, and keep their products at or above the recommended levels of each vitamin. I love how easy it is to incorporate Premama in to my every day routine and carry them in my purse for those “Oops! I forgot” moments.
