“I’m one of the doctors that worked directly with Needed in creating this prenatal. It is so incredibly needed. We spent almost three years vetting every nutrient form, dose, and ingredient supplier to offer the most nourishing product. I’m excited to finally offer my patients and community of mamas and mamas-to-be, a prenatal without any compromise.”

- Dr. Leah Gordon, naturopathic doctor

Complete selection of vitamins, minerals, and botanicals

  • 14 vitamins, 10 minerals, and a high antioxidant organic botanical blend to fully nourish both mama and baby.
  • Most other prenatals are designed to give you just enough nutrients to avoid serious complications and birth defects, NOT to provide you with the comprehensive nourishment you and your baby need.

Optimal nutrient forms

  • 500mg of of Vitamin C delivered in plant-based beadlets for optimal nutrient absorption and protection. Supports immune function, healthy energy levels, and collagen production for healthy connective tissues and skin.
  • 916mcg of the active methylated form of Folate, the form readily usable by the body.
  • 100mcg each (200mcg total) of the two active coenzyme forms of B12, Adenosylcobalamin and Methylcobalamin, for energy and stress management.
  • Chelated minerals bound to Glycine, including 400mg of Magnesium, are easily absorbed and gentle on the stomach.

Dosages that are truly supportive

  • 4,000IU of Vitamin D3 supports bone development, immune function, and an overall healthy pregnancy.
  • 916mcg of the active methylated form of Folate to prevent the build-up of toxins in mama preconception and to support neural tube development in baby without negatively affecting mama's mood.
  • 550mg of Choline supports fetal brain development and maternal liver function.
  • 40mg of active Vitamin B6 helps curb nausea and other daily pregnancy discomforts.

Easy-to-take powder

  • Seamless to incorporate into daily meals, drinks, or snacks (like smoothies, oatmeal, nut milks, and more).
  • Tastes great.
  • It’s more easily absorbed into the body.

Expertly-formulated and tested

  • We designed our Prenatal Multi in partnership with naturopathic doctors and other practitioners and researchers.
  • Together we reviewed 1) peer reviewed, published research, 2) the clinical practice of health practitioners that regularly check nutrient levels, 3) the physiological mechanisms of nutrient usage, meaning how a particular nutrient form is actually used and stored by the body, and 4) traditional healing practices used across cultures for thousands of years (instead of just following the RDAs).
  • We vetted hundreds of suppliers and manufacturers, and did extensive sampling to create the optimal prenatal for you.
  • Every batch is third-party tested.
  • Dosed appropriately
  • Dosed too low
  • Dosed too high

Vitamin A

1,500mcg RAE as 50% Beta Carotene and as 50% Retinyl Palmitate as 50% Beta Carotene and as 50% Retinyl Palmitate
Retinyl Palmitate is an active form that is more readily usable by the body. Beta Carotene is often poorly absorbed and inefficiently converted into the active form. And, many women have a genetic variation that prevents the conversion completely. Our combination provides enough Retinyl Palmitate to be effective, while still being safe for all mamas and mamas-to-be. Our combination provides enough Active Vitamin A to be effective, while still being safe for all mamas and mamas-to-be.

Vitamin D

4,000 IU as D3 Cholecalciferol as D3 Cholecalciferol
Vitamin D3 is technically not a vitamin, but a prohormone. Prohormones are the building blocks of fully formed hormones. Your skin produces Vitamin D3 when it is exposed to sunlight. But, most mamas don't get enough sun and Vitamin D is difficult to get from food. In addition, many women contain genetic variations that predispose them to lower levels of Vitamin D. Vitamin D3 is more readily used by the body than Vitamin D2. Our dose provides enough to be effective, while still being safe for all mamas and mamas-to-be.

Vitamin E

30mg as Mixed Tocopherols as Mixed Tocopherols
Tocopherols are antioxidants that occur naturally in foods such as nuts, seeds, and leafy green vegetables. We source ours from rapeseed oil rather than the more commonly found soybean oil. We provide 64mg of mixed tocopherols overall, with 30mg from d-alpha tocopherols declared as Vitamin E. This dose provides extra antioxidant support to meet the needs of pregnant and nursing mamas. Our Tocopherols are naturally-occurring, and provide extra antioxidant support to meet the needs of pregnant and nursing mamas.

Riboflavin (Vitamin B2)

20mg as 50% Riboflavin 5-Phosphate and 50% Riboflavin as 50% Riboflavin 5-Phosphate and 50% Riboflavin
Vegan or vegetarian mamas have decreased dietary intake of Riboflavin. Deficiencies observed in clinical practice supports our higher dosage. The Riboflavin family are the precursors of the coenzymes, flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD) and flavin mononucleotide (FMN). We use both forms to support production of both coenzymes as Riboflavin contributes the flavin to FAD and Riboflavin-5-Phosphate is synonymous to FMN. Vegan or vegetarian mamas have decreased dietary intake of Riboflavin. Deficiencies observed in clinical practice supports our higher dosage.

Vitamin B6

40mg as Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate as Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate
Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate is bioavailable and ready to be used by the body. It's only found in animal products. Many, due to a common genetic variation, are inefficient converters of B6 Pyridoxine into the active form. Our dose is especially supportive for mamas, including for mood imbalance and nausea, and is highly safe. Many mamas are low in B6, as hormonal birth control significantly depletes the body of it.

Folate

918mcg DFE as L-Methylfolate, Glucosamine Salt Quatrefolic® as L-Methylfolate, Glucosamine Salt Quatrefolic®
Methylfolate paired with Glucosamine Salt is bioavailable and ready to be used by the body. We avoid Folic Acid, as it is unusable or harmful for many mamas. The unmethylated Folate form found in plants is not readily converted into the usable Methylfolate form. Our dosage provides enough Folate to be effective, especially for those with conversion difficulty, while still being safe for all mamas and mamas-to-be. While too little Folate can lead to mood imbalances, so can too much Folate. Methylfolate is bioavailable and ready to be used by the body. We avoid Folic Acid, as it is unusable or harmful for many mamas. While too little Folate can lead to mood imbalances, so can too much Folate. Our dosage is just the right amount.

Vitamin B12

200mg as 50% Adenosylcobalamin and 50% Methylcobalamin as 50% Adenosylcobalamin and 50% Methylcobalamin
Adenosylcobalamin and Methylcobalamin are the two active coenzyme forms that are readily usable by the body. Adenosylcobalamin supports energy and a healthy metabolism, and is often missing in prenatals. Cyanocobalamin, the more common form of B12, consists of a harmful compound that requires additional processing for safe removal from the body. We avoid this form. Our combination provides enough Vitamin B12 to be highly supportive, while still being safe for all mamas and mamas-to-be.

Choline

550mg as Choline L(+) Bitartrate (VitaCholine™) as Choline L(+) Bitartrate (VitaCholine™)
Our Prenatal Multi is the only one to match the full RDA for nursing women. Other research suggests daily Choline intake above 930mg is optimal. On average, pregnant mamas consume just 320mg of Choline in their diet (eggs are the most common dietary source), so our dosage helps to fully fill in what's needed. Most prenatal vitamins contain 55mg of Choline or less as it’s a bulky nutrient that can be difficult to formulate with. Our Prenatal Multi is the only one to match the full RDA for nursing women.

Potassium

100mg as Potassium Citrate as Potassium Citrate
Potassium Citrate is a well-absorbed form. Though Potassium is readily available in foods, dietary surveys consistently show that people in the United States consume substantially less Potassium than recommended. This dose provides a bit of extra support, especially with blood volume expansion in pregnancy. Potassium Citrate is a well-absorbed form. Mamas often need extra Potassium due to blood volume expansion during pregnancy.

Ready to talk to your health practitioner about our better Prenatal Multi?

Thoughtful inquiry is needed.

Why should I pre-order?
We are working hard to fully optimize our Prenatal Multi for you, and your preorder helps make this happen as we are a young company doing a lot of research and development. We also expect to have extremely high demand once our product is ready to ship, so getting your pre-order in now ensures it will be available for you. We anticipate shipping in early-December, and will keep you updated with an official delivery date.
What makes Needed's Prenatal Multi different from others?
We work directly with practitioners who regularly test mamas' nutrient levels before, during, and after pregnancy to know what's truly needed. Together, we have selected nutrient forms of 24 vitamins and minerals that work best in the body, and dosages intended to help you thrive, not just survive. Most prenatals are designed to meet bare minimum needs, and often contain inadequate nutrient amounts and tough-to-absorb forms.
Why do you offer Iron separately?
We recommend taking Iron away from our Prenatal Multi, as Iron can interact negatively with other nutrients. We also recommend taking only as much as you need (some mamas do not need to supplement), as too much supplemental Iron can generate oxidative stress and alter the gut microbiome. Talk to your health practitioner about testing your Iron status before, during, and after pregnancy, and supplement if you are falling short. Our Iron is bound to Glycine for better absorption and digestive comfort.
Why powder?
Powder allows our Prenatal Multi to deliver all of the vitamins, minerals, and botanicals needed for complete, comprehensive nourishment — many of the best nutrients are bulky and can’t fit into 1- or 2-a-day prenatal capsules. You’ll see that a number of nutrient dosages are quite unique including 550mg of Choline and 400mg of Magnesium. Powder is more easily absorbed into the body. There is no need for additives or coatings. And, it tastes great and is seamless to incorporate into daily meals, drinks, or snacks (like smoothies, protein bites, nut milks, and more).
When should I start taking the Prenatal Multi?
Take it before, during, after pregnancy — and even beyond — for the nourishment you need to feel your best and avoid depletion, and to give your baby everything their body needs to thrive from the very start. We like to stress the importance of preconception nutritional preparation and postpartum recovery, so this product is for you even if you are a few years away from having kids or a few years postpartum.
Why do the amounts of some of the nutrients in Prenatal Multi exceed the percent Daily Value?
We designed our Prenatal Multi to help you thrive, not just survive. Daily Values are set off of the Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDAs) which most often do not offer enough nutritional value for pregnant and nursing women.
Is your Prenatal Multi vegan, allergen free, and Non-GMO?
Our Prenatal Multi is vegetarian, but not vegan. There are considerable sustainability questions around the common vegan source of Vitamin D3, lichen. Lichen is a moss-like organism that exists as a composite of fungus and algae. It is an important part of the Arctic tundra ecosystem and grows "extremely slowly", less than a millimeter per year. For this reason, we prefer a “mind-fully made” D3 originally sourced from lanolin. It is allergen free, meaning no milk, egg, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, soy, and gluten. It is also free of GMOs, artificial colors, artificial flavors, preservatives, and other additives and fillers.
What "other ingredients" are included in your Prenatal Multi?
We are thoughtful about every ingredient we use, including our OTHER INGREDIENTS. Citric Acid: Citric acid exists in a variety of fruits and vegetables. We use citric acid to enhance flavor. We source our citric acid from organic mineral salts, not the commonly used corn source. Medium Chain Triglycerides from Organic Coconut Oil: MCT oil delivers short chain fatty acids providing creaminess, while being easy to digest. This purified oil contains no allergens. Acacia Fiber: Acacia fiber is a type of soluble fiber harvested from the sap of the Acacia tree. It is well tolerated and supports the texture of the powder. Natural Vanilla Flavor: Delicious vanilla taste on its own, or a great base to add other flavors like cocoa or berry to suit your taste buds. Modified Tapioca Starch: Modified tapioca starch is a hydrolyzed starch from the roots of the cassava plant. It is included in one of our vitamins to aid mixability of the powder. We use tapioca to avoid starch sourced from corn or grains. Monk Fruit Extract: Monk fruit, or Lo Han Guo, is a small round fruit native to southern China. This fruit has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine. We use a small amount, about 0.6% by weight per serving, of 100% extract from the fruit to add a little sweetness to the powder. Monk fruit causes no blood sugar spike. (Be careful that many will claim to be using monk fruit, but mix it with erythritol or xylitol.) Cellulose and Cellulose Wax: Cellulose, the main constituent of plant cell walls and vegetable fibers, form beadlets to encapsulate our Vitamin C for optimal nutrient delivery and protection. Sunflower Oil: Sunflower oil is the oil pressed from the seeds of sunflower. One of our vitamins contains sunflower oil for stability. Overall, it makes up less than 0.2% of a serving by weight. Annatto: Annatto extracted from the seeds of the achiote tree provides the pink coloring of our Vitamin C beadlets.
Can I give it to my partner?
Yes, we do. We make a “couples smoothie” almost every morning. We’re working on a specific formula for the men in our lives that will have a few more sperm boosters like CoQ10. In the meantime, our Prenatal Multi paired with our Omega-3 and Collagen Protein is a great start. Conception is a two-way street. (We then separately take our Pre/Probiotic.)
Will the Prenatal Multi make my urine a bright yellow?
It may at times, especially with consistent use. B Vitamins in particular can cause urine to change to a bright yellow hue. Your body is excreting what it doesn’t need. We use nutrients forms that are most easily absorbed by the body, but because we set dosages to be fully supportive, the nutrient amounts may sometimes be more than you need. At our dosages, this is not harmful in any way, but just a guarantee you hit optimal amounts. Less is not more in our mind!
Where is the Prenatal Multi Manufactured?
The Prenatal Multi is manufactured in the United States at a FDA, GMP and QAI Certified Organic facility.
What kind of testing do you do?
We test every batch for performance and quality, including through third parties that test for nutritional content, pesticides and herbicides, heavy metals, microbes, allergens, and other contaminants.
Everything makes me nauseous while I am pregnant, will your product work for me?
Many pregnant mamas find our product more pleasant to take than a pill, and can often find something palatable to mix the powder into, even while nauseated. It is simple to incorporate the powder into the meals or beverages that sound appealing like smoothies, meals, protein bites, etc.
Why do you suggest taking more than just the Prenatal Multi?
Our Prenatal Multi is the most comprehensive available, but some extra support is always needed during this life stage. Our products are designed to be taken together. We recommend pairing the Prenatal Multi with our Omega-3 powder, Collagen Protein, and Pre/Probiotic to fully support you and baby before, during, and after pregnancy. Keeping the products separate allows us to maintain quality. For example, we find the Omega-3 (DHA + EPA) is compromised when taken out of the context (our liposomes keep the Omega-3 in their natural context) and mixed into a multivitamin
Why should I start a subscription? How does a subscription work?
Daily, continuous supplementation is needed to maintain optimal levels for you and your baby before, during, and after pregnancy. Our subscription ensures you never miss a day of optimal nourishment. We’ll send you an email each month, a few days before we charge you and ship your next box. You can delay an order, or cancel your subscription at any time, right from your account page.
I’m not yet pregnant or a mama, is your product still for me?
Yes, our product is tailored for before, during, and after pregnancy, but it is beneficial at all stages of life. Research suggests that a mama’s habits prior to conception influence her baby’s well-being not just at birth, but also for its entire lifetime. We recommend taking our Prenatal Multi prior to becoming pregnant to build your stores of key nutrients that are commonly depleted during pregnancy. The more you have prior to pregnancy, the better you may be able to feel during pregnancy.
What happens if I miss a day? Or a few days?
Don't sweat it. We know how busy life can get. We suggest building your Prenatal Multi consumption into an existing routine (like your morning smoothie), to keep the habit strong. Taking your Prenatal Multi every day will provide positive, long-lasting results.
