Never heard about that supplement. Sorry for that. The supplement that my sister take during her 1st baby is the Omega 3 Fish Oil. it goods not only for the mother but also for the baby's vision and memory. It's been proven through many researches and studies how this oil is beneficial for both mother and child. In choosing for a supplement, makes sure it's free of any detectable contaminants. Many lab tests proven that Maxalife’s Omega 3 Fish Oil is the purest in the world. So you can considered that. Just an advice. Ms. Susan point of views is great!

Hi gelove

Thanks for your post and congratulations on your pregnancy!

When you are having a baby, you have a responsibility to make sure that any supplements you are taking are safe. You need to do this straight away and mention it to your doctor or midwife. Even "natural" things like herbs can be dangerous to a pregnancy.

With regard to an "antenator" supplement, I have never heard of this. What's in it? Do you mean an antenatal supplment? These are vitamins given to pregnant women to make sure they are getting enough vitamins and minerals (and iron and folic acid). If this is what you mean, they are safe to take!
