Pregnancy supplements have become a normal part of preconception and pregnancy care for women. It is fairly standard for your healthcare provider to suggest that you take a supplement specific for pregnancy. While these supplements address specific vitamins and minerals that are essential for a healthy pregnancy, they can cause problems such as constipation, reflux, and nausea for some women.

MamaCare Nutritional Pregnancy Supplement Shake can be taken as an alternative to a pregnancy multivitamin pill as it contains 26 vitamins, minerals and nutrients required during pregnancy.

There are some key vitamins that help support a pregnancy, and these are included in the Vanilla shake:

Folic acid: helps reduce the risk of neural tube defects such as Spina Bifida if taken prior to conception and for the first three months of pregnancy.

Iron: supports the growth of both your baby and the placenta that is nourishing your baby.

Vitamin D: helps build strong bones and teeth in your baby

Protein: to promote the growth of foetal and uterine tissue.

MamaCare Nutritional Pregnancy Supplement Shake is easy to prepare by mixing two scoops of powder with 200ml of water. You can add your favourite fruit and drink it as a smoothie, or turn it into a hot chocolate. It’s gentle on the tummy and easy to digest, which is great for those women suffering from pregnancy nausea. It can be taken any time of the day, or twice a day if your diet is compromised from morning sickness. Recommended in conjunction with a healthy diet.

It’s liquid form is easier for the body to digest and absorb all the nutrients, compared to tablet form supplements.

Manufactured in Australia under strict quality controlled conditions, it uses 100 per cent Australian milk powder. Being a pharmaceutical grade supplement, it is only available from pharmacies, doctors and dietitians or through MamaCare’s online shop.
