Prenatal multivitamin support: Advanced Prenatal provides a science-based combination of vitamins and minerals, incorporating 1 mg of folate and an array of antioxidants that reflect the latest research in prenatal nutrition.
Fetal development, heart health, mood, and overall health support: EPA-DHA 720 is a quality-guaranteed omega-3 fatty acid formula manufactured and third-party tested in Norway to ensure greater purity.

iHerb Customer Reviews
Received the product several times with no issue. However, UPS did leave the vitamins sitting in full sun in 100 degree weather. But that is an issue with UPS not iHerb. Keep up the good work.
While this supplement is chock full of everything you might need, anyone who has ever been pregnant before can tell you 8 pills is a bad idea for anyone dealing with the trials of the first trimester. Also be prepared to taste these in every burp no matter how much food you attempt to hide them in.
