Perfect prenatal vitamin??

Ok, I know, maybe it doesn't exist, but I want something without artificial ingredients (including food colorings), without herbs and preferably once a day. I'd also prefer a reputable (well known?) brand.

I've tried Rainbow light and Vita-natal and they give me diarrhea.

Nearly everything at the drug store has artificial food dyes--why the heck do I need my vitamin to be hot pink???

Any that people like? Could be Rx or OTC

I really liked Whole Foods prenatals.

They had a ton of good stuff in there.

I use NewChapter Organics - don't remember offhand if they have herbs or not. You have to take three, but you can take them in one sitting if you like. (Or at least, I hope you can, since that's what I've been doing!)

I'm with you on the hot pink thing, though. Had the worst time finding papaya tablets that weren't pink.

Me too! My iron levels were fine so I'm ok skipping it. But it does have DHA and folic acid.

I also take New Chapter Prenatals, it's pretty good in terms of not upsetting the stomach and has a lot of whole food nutrients. It is pricey though, but I got an okay deal on them through Amazon.
