Help-prenatal Vitamins

Recommended Posts

I was just diagnosed last week and am taking prenatal vitamins since I'm breastfeeding. No where on the bottle is there a phone number or website. They are Spring Valley prenatal vitamins that I got from Walmart. Any suggestions on finding out if they are gluten-free. I met with a dietician this week who thinks I'm malnurished and wants me to be sure I'm taking supplements.

Thanks for any help.

hey there,

I dont know about the ones that you are on but I am taking Rainbow Light.

the bottle says "Rainbow Light, Just Once Natural Prenatal Multivitamin.

They are awesome, I got them at a Local store here called Herb Mart.

they say gluten free on the bottle and it also lists all sorts of other allergies like, sugar, lactose, gluten or allergenic yeasts, Hypoallergenic. There is also another form that they make that is vegan. Hope this helps!

I use Freeda vitamins. I've found it at a local gluten free store but it is available online. Just search for freeda vitamins. They have all sorts, including prenatal.

The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.
