Join as a Needed Practitioner Partner.

As mothers and trained nutritionists, we believe women deserve radically better perinatal care. Nutrition is one of the most impactful and immediate ways we can influence maternal and infant health – yet the importance of nutrition in fertility, pregnancy, postpartum, and beyond is largely ignored.

Women are left with more questions than answers about their nutritional needs. What’s more, standard prenatal vitamins are designed to meet just the bare minimums, leaving over 95% of women depleted.

We believe in the power of the collective to set a higher standard for women and their families. That’s why we turned to our collective of over 4,000 practitioners to design our products and educational content, based on the latest research and insights from their clinical practice.

Together, we are setting a new, radically better standard for perinatal nutrition – for women, their families, and our earth.

We are so excited for you to join us!

Needed’s Complete Plan is the optimal nutrition that all women deserve. As an OB-GYN, I recommend Needed to all my patients who are preparing to conceive, pregnant, postpartum, or breastfeeding. The quality of nutrients in these products is unparalleled."
Dr. Phabillia Afflack, MD, OBGYN
As a prenatal dietitian, I've been approached by other companies to design "the best prenatal" on the market. I've turned them down because it's already been done--by Needed!"
Kristin Brown, Registered Dietitian
At 11 weeks pregnant, I was introduced to Needed by my midwife after complaining about my morning sickness and lack of appetite. Needed’s Collagen Protein was a game changer and the only protein powder that I could tolerate. I still implement it now postpartum and love it."
Dr. Maxine Owusu, MD
Needed’s Men’s Line optimally supports the male body’s biochemical processes, with the right nutrients that are in the right forms. This is vital for overall daily function including reproductive health, including testosterone and sperm production. As a Naturopathic Doctor and dad, these are the top of the line products I take myself and recommend to all of my patients who are trying to conceive."
Dr. Rory Gibbons, ND
Needed’s Complete Plan for women and men is the most comprehensive line of perinatal supplements on the market. I recommend it to all of my clients, and my husband and I have personally used the products for the last year while preparing to conceive our third baby. I can’t recommend Needed enough."
