Pregnancy Home > Stuart Prenatal Uses

Stuart Prenatal is primarily used for supplementing certain nutrients that may be lacking in a pregnant woman's diet. The prenatal vitamins are available without a prescription and contain 800 mcg of folic acid (which can help prevent certain birth defects). Stuart Prenatal uses can also be beneficial for women who are breastfeeding or for women who are trying to conceive.

What Is Stuart Prenatal Used For?

Stuart Prenatal® and Stuart Prenatal + DHA® are nonprescription prenatal vitamins. Prenatal vitamins are specifically designed for pregnant women. They are used to fill in any nutritional gaps in the diet during pregnancy. Even women who usually eat a well-balanced and nutritional diet may be prone to having nutritional gaps during pregnancy due to morning sickness or other problems.
Stuart Prenatal + DHA is a combination product. It combines Stuart Prenatal tablets with gelcaps that contain docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), eicosapentaenoic acid, (EPA), and other omega-3 fatty acids.
Stuart Prenatal is also beneficial for women who are breastfeeding and women trying to conceive. Because it is important to get enough folic acid prior to pregnancy and during early pregnancy (including the early weeks before you even know you are pregnant), your healthcare provider may recommend that you take a prenatal vitamin while trying to get pregnant. In fact, because many pregnancies are unplanned, it is a good idea for any sexually active woman of reproductive age to take a prenatal vitamin (or at least a multivitamin with a minimum of 400 mcg of folic acid).
