We do our homework. See the research that went into making Prenatal Gummies.
Prenatal Gummies were thoughtfully formulated by experts (who are also moms).
Our high-quality prenatal gummy vitamins were carefully developed using peer-reviewed studies that reflect the latest research in prenatal nutrition. The formula development was led by our Medical Advisor and board-certified OBGYN, Dr. Kenosha Gleaton, an award-winning registered dietitian-nutritionist and specialist in fertility, Lauren Manaker, RD, and our Founder and EVP of Women's Health Strategy at Everly Health, Halle Tecco MBA, MPH.
We are committed to manufacturing excellence. Every batch of vitamins is tested for product integrity.
All of our vitamins are made in an FDA Registered and Inspected Facility, which meets or exceeds FDA 21 CFR 111 guidelines, and is also Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) certified. In addition to testing the raw material components of our vitamins to ensure their purity and accuracy, we also test each batch after it is produced to ensure final product integrity and quality. Testing includes a chemical analysis to ensure accuracy, a microbial analysis (salmonella, E. coli, yeast, and mold) and a heavy metals test (including arsenic, cadmium, and lead). Our prenatal gummy vitamins are free of artificial and synthetic dyes. Additionally, our prenatal gummy vitamins are manufactured under strict procedures to ensure there is no cross-contamination during manufacturing and storage.
Formulated with high bioavailability MTHF folate to aid in protection against neural tube defects.‡
MTHF folate (L-5-MTHF) is the most abundant folate found in the human body. It is naturally found in food, but is most easily absorbed from a dietary supplement. MTHF folate is the highest bioavailable folate found in dietary supplements. It can be immediately utilized by your body and doesn’t need to be converted by the enzyme methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR).
Up to 25% of the population has a variant of the MTHFR gene (MTHFR 677TT) that can significantly impair their ability to metabolize folic acid. Individuals with this MTHFR variation are also at a higher risk of having a child with neural tube defects. The research is still preliminary, but people with the MTHFR 677TT variant may benefit from MTHF folate supplementation over taking a folic acid supplement.‡ Learn more ⟶
Our Methylcobalamin B12 works with MTHF folate to decrease cellular homocysteine.‡
All B12 contains the mineral cobalt, which is why they are collectively called cobalamins. B12 can be formulated as synthetic cyanocobalamin or bioidentical methylcobalamin. Natalist Prenatal Gummies contain bioidentical methylcobalamin, the bioactive form of B12 that is naturally found in the human body. B12 is only naturally found in animal products, so prenatal supplementation is especially important for those who do not consume animal products. Both B12 and folate are essential to homocysteine metabolism, an amino acid in which low levels are linked with potential increased risks of neural tube defects, heart disease, and stroke.‡
Made with iron to help protect against pregnancy-induced anemia without blocking absorption of other nutrients.‡
Iron is the elemental transporter of oxygen in blood in the form of hemoglobin and the facilitator of oxygen storage in muscles in the form of myoglobin. Pregnant women require two to three times as much iron as non-pregnant women. Iron supplementation during pregnancy can help protect against pregnancy-induced anemia, a condition where you do not have enough red blood cells to carry oxygen throughout your body. Some studies have shown that anemia during pregnancy increases a person’s risk of hemorrhage and the chance of having a child with low birth weight.‡
Made with DHA to support brain, eye, and nervous system growth.‡
DHA intake during pregnancy is critical for the development of the brain and retina and is not made at high quantities in the body. Our gluten-free prenatal multivitamin gummies include 75 mg of DHA per serving.‡
Some prenatals lack choline; our Prenatal Gummies have 100 mg per serving.
Some prenatal supplements on the market lack choline, but growing evidence of shows choline can improve several pregnancy outcomes and may protect against certain neural and metabolic disorders.Approximately 95% of pregnant women don't get enough choline through diet, and most prenatals contain little—if any—choline. Some evidence indicates that lower choline levels are associated with an increased risk of neural tube defects. And while adding choline as an ingredient into a gummy was admittedly a challenge when it came to formulation, it was important to our team that our prenatal gummy include it. Natalist Prenatal Gummies contain 100mg of choline per serving, and when paired with a nutrient-rich diet, can help support you throughout every stage of trying to conceive (TTC) and pregnancy. For more information on choline-rich foods, read more here.‡
Contains 150 mcg iodine, as recommended by the American Thyroid Association.
Adequate maternal dietary intake of iodine during pregnancy is essential for maternal thyroxine production and for thyroid function in the fetus. The American Thyroid Association recommends all prenatal vitamins contain 150 mcg of iodine, and ours complies with that recommendation.‡
Non-GMO, but that doesn’t really matter.
Along with 88% of polled scientists, Natalist believes that the majority of genetically modified foods are safe. That said, we also believe that bioengineered ingredients should be clearly labeled so that consumers can make an informed purchase decision. Transparency is essential in building trust between brands and consumers. Our products clearly state if they do or do not contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs)
The CDC recommends starting a prenatal vitamin one to three months before getting pregnant.
Most women are aware that prenatal vitamins are an important part of a healthy pregnancy. What a lot of them don’t know is that they should be taking them before conceiving. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), all women between ages 15 and 45 should be taking 400 micrograms (mcg) of folate. That recommendation isn’t just from the CDC either. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) also recommends folate supplementation to any woman who may become pregnant.
The ideal time to start a prenatal is one to three months before trying to conceive. The main reason for this because of the large number of unintended pregnancies. A study published in 2016 revealed that a staggering 45% of pregnancies in the US are unplanned. The window during which folate supplementation is most important is in the first 21 to 28 days after conception, which is much earlier than many of these pregnancies are recognized. Read more here.‡
Our gummies are made with pectin, not gelatin.
Pectin is a plant-based, vegan fiber that helps make our gummies easily chewable. It also lowers the likelihood that they'll melt together in transit.

Commonly asked questions about Prenatal Gummies:
Are your prenatal vitamins vegetarian?
Is your prenatal kosher or halal certified?
Natalist Prenatal Gummies are kosher and halal friendly, not certified.
What’s different about your prenatal vitamins?
Our vitamins are formulated based on extensive research and use high-quality, ultra-pure ingredients. We encourage you to compare our supplement label to others on the market, and look at what’s included (choline, iron, etc.), the quality of ingredients (e.g. as folate vs folic acid), and the dosages.
How will I know these are safe? What kind of testing do you do?
We have several quality control measures in place to ensure the highest safety and quality standards for our vitamins:
- All our vitamins are made in an FDA Registered and Inspected Facility, which meets or exceeds FDA 12 CFR 111 guidelines, and is also GMP Certified.
- We directly test the raw material components of our vitamins to ensure their purity before they are used for production.
- Certificates of analysis (COA) are performed on every batch of manufactured vitamins to ensure final product integrity and quality.
- Additionally, all our products are free of artificial dyes and most allergens.
How big are these gummies? Are they easy to swallow?
Prenatal Gummies are button shaped and 1.8 centimeters in width and 1.6 centimeters in height. Their gummy form factor makes them easy to chew and swallow.
I’m not pregnant or trying to have a baby. Can I still take prenatal vitamins?
Yes! The general recommendation is for women of reproductive age to take a prenatal vitamin if they are not preventing pregnancy, planning to TTC in the near future, actively TTC, pregnant, or breastfeeding. This recommendation stems from the fact that up to 45% of pregnancies in the United States are unintended. Furthermore, many such pregnancies are unrecognized for the first four to six weeks—which represents a vital time for organ development, especially the brain and spinal cord.‡
How often should I take your prenatals?
When trying to conceive or pregnant, take three gummies a day or as directed by your doctor.
Should I double my prenatal regimen if I’m expecting twins?
We do not recommend doubling up on prenatal vitamins as increased amounts of certain vitamins can be dangerous. In general, healthcare providers recommend increased folate intake with twins. Please talk to your healthcare provider about the recommended values. If you have a history of seizures and are on anticonvulsants, or if you have a history of a baby affected by a neural tube defect, talk to your healthcare provider about increased folate intake. Based on conversations with your healthcare provider, you can supplement with our MTHF Folate for reproductive health and fetal development.‡
