I first took this supplement when I was pregnant with my son, and it never upset my stomach, even when taken without food, and that was frequently important in the first trimester, as I often couldn't keep anything down! I continued taking this supplement postpartum and still take it today as I breastfeed my son, as it's the best one I have found on the market. Make sure you take this supplement separate from any other supplements containing iron, as the calcium will prevent the iron from being absorbed. I forgot this rule and almost passed out from iron deficiency while in my first trimester of pregnancy. It was scary! But I learned to never take the calcium with a prenatal or multivitamin that contains iron. Thank you, New Chapter, for an awesome product! After taking this calcium supplement as well as the New Chapter prenatal during my pregnancy, I gave birth to a healthy, 11-pound baby, and I'm so happy I gave him the running start he deserved. He's a strong boy, and I don't see any signs of him slowing down!

I'm in my first trimester, and so far, I have been quite pleased with New Chapter's Prenatal. I really love being able to take these prenatals with or without food, as sometimes my stomach can be quite touchy. I also feel much better taking an organic whole foods prenatal, as I can be much more assured that more of the nutrients are getting to my baby. The price is excellent, though I did find them a bit cheaper on Amazon.com. Thanks for offering such a great product for expecting and hopeful mothers!
