Vitamins

Garden of Life, My Kind Organic, Once Daily Prenatal Multi-Vitamin: I love this vitamin supplement because it is organic, whole food, no synthetics and you only have to swallow ONE each day!

Amazing Naturals, Organic Once Daily Prenatal Multi-Vitamin: This looks like it is just as good as GoL My Kind Organic Once Daily, BUT ONLY 1/3 THE COST!

Garden of Life, My Kind Organic, Prenatal Multi-Vitamin: If you prefer to swallow 3 smaller tablets instead of one large one, this is the best.

Garden of Life, My Kind Organic, Gummy Prenatal Multi-Vitamin: for those who cannot swallow pills. This vitamin contains more sugar (from organic fruits) than the ones you swallow.

Nature's Dynamics Organic Gummy Prenatal Multi-Vitamin: another excellent choice for prenatal gummy vitamins. More sugar than prenatal vitamins you swallow, of course. This one is much less expensive than the Garden of Life version!

Garden of Life, RAW Prenatal Multi-Vitamin: This one is also excellent, no synthetic ingredients, though not every ingredient is organic.

Garden of Life, RAW B Complex: Natural B vitamins, no synthetics! Take one of these with any individual, isolated B vitamin you are supplementing. Ask your midwife why!

Source Naturals Coenzymated B-6

Jarrow Formulas Methyl Folate 5-MTHF

Viva Naturals Premium Non-GMO Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids and Rose Hips, 1000mg, 250 Veg Caps: This is "ascorbic acid" synthesized from NON-GMO corn. If you want a 1000mg capsule of vitamin C that is not too expensive, I like this one the best:

Garden of Life Vitamin C: natural vitamin C from whole foods, 250mg per capsule

Vitamin K Complex from Garden of Life

Minerals

Solaray Calcium and Magnesium AAC Capsules: This is CHELATED calcium and magnesium. This is the one I recommend. The chelation makes it absorb so much better than non-chelated, so you get more good use out of it. This brand is in capsules, so if you have trouble swallowing pills, you can open the capsule and mix in a little yogurt or other food.

Country Life - Chelated Magnesium: Sometimes you need a little extra magnesium by itself (not buffered with calcium). Ask your midwife why!

Ancient Minerals Magnesium Oil Spray: Sometimes trans-dermal magnesium is better than oral magnesium supplementation. I recommend you use gloves if you rub this around on your skin - you don't want to accidentally get some in your eye!

Salus-Haus - Floradix Floravital Iron & Herbs

Nature's Plus Hema-Plex

Sea Salt
Look for sea salt (not table salt) that has some color to it (not highly processed and bleached white). These are my favorites:

Celtic Sea Salt, Fine Ground

Light Grey Celtic coarse sea salt

Redmond Real Salt, Nature's First Sea Salt, Fine Salt

The Spice Lab Himalayan Fine Ground Pink Salt

The Spice Lab Pink Himalayan Coarse Salt

Herbs

Solaray Organic Alfalfa Supplement

Oregon's wild Harvest organic Gluten free Cranberry Capsules

Solaray - Organic Dandelion

Solaray Organic Garlic Supplement

Kyolic Garlic One Per Day Cardiovascular Formula

Kyolic Garlic Formula 103 Immune Formula

Kyolic Aged Garlic ExtractTM Candida Cleanse and Digestion Formula102

Nutribiotic Grapefruit Seed Extract Tablets: I prefer these for swallowing

Nutribiotic Grapefruit Seed Extract Liquid Concentrate: I prefer this one if making a salve or poultice

Solaray Organic Nettle Leaf Capsules

GreenLove ORGANIC Nopal Prickly Pear Cactus Capsules

Other Supplements

Nature's Sunshine Food Enzymes - to get more nutrition from every bite of food!

Bath Herbs

Earth Mama Angel Baby Postpartum Bath Herbs, Organic Sitz Bath: I usually make my own postpartum bath herbal blend, but if you need to purchase one, I like this one... you might purchase several of these instead of just one!

Natural Progesterone

Life-Flo Progesta-Care with Natural Progesterone Body Cream

Bezwecken ProgonB-L 4x Topical Oil Blend 10ml: This is not the brand I sell in the reception area of my office, but is similar! If you are in SW MO, please stop by the office to purchase.
