This page includes my supplement recommendations based on things I am taking and believe to be effective for me. Keep in mind that everyone is different and you may benefit from different supplements. It is always best to work with your practitioner to see what is right for you.
It is also worth mentioning that supplements are meant to supplement a healthy, balanced and varied diet — not to replace real, whole foods in your diet.

I started taking Full Circle Prenatal Vitamins in October 2019 per @nutritionbyrobyn’s recommendations. They were developed by a Registered Dietitian and mother based on the best evidence available. (You can find her @aylabarmmer_rd on IG.) Full Circle delivers optimal forms and evidence-based doses of nutrients in an easy-to-tolerate formula. I never feel nauseous from taking these.
The nutrients are delivered in forms that provide the best absorption and support the female body before, during and after pregnancy. Even if you’re not trying to get pregnant, you can benefits from the nutrients in these supplements. In addition, they go through extensive testing to ensure they are free from harmful contaminants including heavy metals and chemicals.
You do have to take eight pills a day, in divided doses — this is how they were designed. I find it easiest to put 8 pills into a small baggie in the morning so I can keep track of how many I’ve taken throughout the day. I try to take 3 with breakfast, 2 with lunch, and 3 with dinner to make it easy to remember. You can also split into 4 and 4 — whatever works for you! You can find more info about the supplements on their IG page @fullcircleprenatal.
I recommend reading through the FAQs on the website linked below to answer any other questions you may have about the prenatals.
omega-3 FISH OIL supplements
Full Circle Prenatal Fish Oil
I recently switched to Full Circle’s omega-3s as well, because you only have to take one gelcap per day, and I just love this brand and all that Ayla has done to ensure it’s the highest quality supplement possible to support a healthy pregnancy.
Life Equals Omega-3s
I took Superfood Shot (formerly Life Equals) omega-3s for a long time and still really like them, too. You can use my discount code WELLNESSFORTHEWIN to save on subscriptions. Click here to shop.

JUST THRIVE PROBIOTICS
I have also been taking Just Thrive probiotics since October 2019 and so far have loved them. What makes Just Thrive unique is that their probiotics are 100% spore-based, giving them superior survivability so they can do their thing to support your gut and immune health.

Superfood Shot Supplements
I have been taking Balance The Superfood Shot for years now and still love them. Each shot delivers 1/2 your day’s servings of fruits and veggies all in one convenient shot (made with real fruits and vegetables). They are great for travel or just getting a boost of nutrition on day’s when you feel like you need a little extra support.
Superfood Shot sells 3 unique blends that are meant to support your health in different ways. You can read more about each one on their site. I recommend purchasing a mixed blend pack first so you can try each one!
My favorites are the Foundation Blend and Immunity Blend (elderberry flavored – great for supporting your health in the winter during cold/flu season!) They taste best cold.
I hope these Supplement Recommendations are helpful! I will be sure to update and add to this list as needed.
Please let me know if you have any questions!
