I've mentioned before that I am preparing to be a gestational surrogate (you can keep up with that journey on mom.me). Part of the preparation means making sure my body is healthy and ready to take on a pregnancy.
I met with the fertility doctor last month and he suggested I start taking prenatal vitamins. I have to admit that I was never very good about taking my prenatal vitamins in the past - mostly because a lot of them taste gross and are hard to swallow.
Healthy Mama reached out to me at just the right time and offered to send me their products. I was so excited to receive these goodies. You can learn about the Healthy Mama mission here, but basically they want to create products for mothers-to-be that are safe to take during pregnancy. I remember always being so worried about taking medications during my pregnancies because I didn't want to take anything that would harm my baby. It's nice to see a brand that has done all the research and created a trust-worthy product for pregnant mamas.
I've been taking the prenatal vitamins along with the DHA supplement daily and I'm pleasantly surprised that the pills don't taste horrible and are easy to swallow. Hopefully as we move forward with the surrogacy I will be able to test out the other products (bring on that sleep aid! haha). I'm happy that there is a safe and healthy option for medications out there for us mamas.
Here's to a happy and healthy pregnancy!
