It's best to take Elevit with Iodine when you first start planning to have a baby, and then continue throughout pregnancy and breastfeeding.
If you're pregnant, Elevit with Iodine can help! The unique formulation of Elevit with Iodine contains 800mcg of folic acid, ten other vitamins and eight trace elements, including iron and iodine. The high iron content can help prevent dietary iron deficiency (all too common when you're pregnant).
After a baby is born it also makes sense to take Elevit with Iodine. You may have lost a lot of iron during the birth process and it's important for your health to have adequate nutrition levels after pregnancy. If you're breastfeeding, you're also likely to feel like a machine! On average a woman breastfeeding will be making between 700-900mL of milk a day!3 That means you'll need extra nutrients to cope with the demand.
