gluten-free Pre-natal Vitamins?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

OK - here's the scoop.

I call the OB - they say I need to start pre-natals asap but they don't know of any that are gluten-free so I need to find out and they will write me a script.

I call the pharmacy - they don't know, but there is a gluten-free book out there that will tell me but they don't know the name of it.

I call the Gasterintologist who diagnosed me recently with Celiacs and the nurse there says - this is a first for them that I need to check online with one of the Celiacs support groups.

So - I am new to Celiacs and now pregnant and need to start vitamins ASAP (I'm over 40) - any suggestions?

Lori,

So sorry you are having a rough time tracking this down! I personally take Nature's Way: Completia Pre-Natals (besides being gluten-free, it has DHA added to it). What I did was go to my local health food store. Those people know their stuff, and can immediately point out the gluten-free vitamins for you. Plus, any brand I picked up in the health food store made a point of saying "gluten free" somewhere on the bottle if it was. No need to scan the ingredients to determine for yourself. Hopefully you have a healthfood store in mind close to you?

I used Freeda Prenatal's. They are gluten free along with being free of some other things.

One more option... I'm still taking Rainbow Light's "Just Once" prenatals. I checked to make sure they were gluten-free. I've been ordering them from www.naturalhealthshoppe.com to get a good price.
