Vitamins are absolutely essential for a healthy pregnancy: before, during, and after. Expectant parents want healthy babies and to more easily navigate pregnancy s many ups and downs. Problem is, standard prenatal vitamins don t come close to meeting the needs of all women. Nutritional (orthomolecular) physicians have known this for decades. Many women would benefit from an abundance of nutrients during pregnancy and the advantages are clear: healthy babies and happy moms. Helen Saul Case has lifelong experience with nutritional medicine, having been born and raised with it her entire life. Still, she found pregnancy challenging, with new aches, pains, and amazing symptoms I couldn t have dreamed up if I tried. It became all too clear that how to best use high doses of vitamins to safely and effectively address health issues was conspicuously absent from the scores of pregnancy health books out there.
