I have a number of women's health issues (vulvadynia, vaginitis, etc - have done for many many years) and have been seeing a natropath and am on supplements currently. A whole lot of supplements... I'm surprised I don't rattle!!
Anyway... my natropath knows we're TTC #3 (I'm 5DPO, waiting to test) and have told me what is safe and unsafe to have. With my own personal research I am now left completely confused as to what is safe and what is not.
Is there somewhere 'official' or reliable that I can check?
What supplements did you take safely in pregnancy?
I'm currently on:
Probiotic (that is pregnancy and nursing safe)
Multivitamin (a pregnancy one)
Vit E Capsules
Mashmallow Root Capsules - which I've been told are unsafe... but have seen conflicting information. Natro says the tea is safe... the capsules are not. She wants me to replace this with Slippery Elm powder, which I have read conflicting information about.
Grapefruit Seed Extract Capsules - She says they are unsafe, so I have stopped
Curcumin/Tumeric Capsules - She says are safe... I read are unsafe and to only have the Tumeric powder
SO confusing!!! Just want to give baby the best start.
