You want the best for your baby. That begins with caring for your nutritional needs before you get pregnant, through delivery, and until the end of breastfeeding. Excellent nutrition is essential for supporting your well-being during and after pregnancy, as well as the normal growth and development of your little one. Discover the USANA products that help support a healthy pregnancy along with tips for babying your health to nurture your bundle of joy.*

In addition to a balanced diet of nourishing whole foods, the following USANA products are generally recommended for healthy women who are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or who are breastfeeding. Make sure to talk to your doctor about their recommendations, too.

Start with Everyday Foundational Nutrition

Prenatal CellSentials™


This advanced prenatal supplement provides essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients your body and your baby need. This includes 600 micrograms (mcg) of folic acid in Prenatal Vita Antioxidant. Adequate folate in healthful diets may reduce a woman’s risk of having a child with a brain or spinal cord birth defect. And, it’s made with beta carotene, which naturally converts to vitamin A when needed. Vitamin A is essential for a growing baby for many reasons, including supporting healthy vision. The Prenatal Core Minerals also supplies 28 milligrams (mg) of iron along with a range of other elements needed for healthy growth and development.*


Add Daily Optimizers for Your Unique Needs

BiOmega™


Taking a fish oil supplement while pregnant and breastfeeding will give your baby a smart start. Omega-3 fatty acids help support many aspects of infant cognitive development, including IQ, social skills, and behavior. And, when you take a product with exceptional purity, you won’t have to worry about the possible contaminants you might get from eating too much seafood. Omega-3s may also help support your mood after delivery.* 


Active Calcium™ Chewable


Your baby’s developing bones need calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D. Ingesting enough through your diet is a simple way to ensure those minerals don’t come from your bones instead. This chewable formula  gives you a boost in bone-building nutrients. And it can be easily consumed throughout the day, so you can take it when it works for you.*

If you prefer a tablet that can be swallowed with water, choose USANA® MagneCal D™.

Your lifestyle is also of utmost importance during this time. Follow any dietary or lifestyle restrictions recommended by your doctor, quit smoking, cut out alcohol, and limit your caffeine intake.
