Would you recommend this to other mums?

If a friend was looking for vitamin support during pregnancy then I would recommend these tablets. They were easy to open, box was clearly labeled and generally everything that is expected from a box of multi vitamins was present. I would recommend them to a friend.

How did this product make your life easier?

The tablets are really priced and are also on offer for three for two meaning that they give me more money to spend on other things for the baby and my two ther children. The instructions are easy to follow giving me even precious time as well. They can be used for breastfeeding as well meaning they are multipurpose.

What changes would you make to this product?

Not sure there is much to change about this product to be honest. It's a box of tablets to be taken during pregnancy, not a show stopping product. As long as it contains the required vitamins there is not much that you can change really.

Tested by mum Lisa Macintosh for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Each capsule was easy to swallow in a pack of 30 support tablets and 30 omega 3 capsules with easy to use description on pack, hygienic blister pack means that they stay fresh for longer, on the side of the pack the nutrient information gives you cofindence knowing your getting the vitamins you need for you and your baby.

How did this product make your life easier?

Giving me confidence that I'm getting the right amount of nutritients for me and my baby, with quick easy dispensable capsules and easy to swallow, the vitamin b help maintain my energy levels reducing my tiredness and fatigue, and the ginger helps to maintain my digestive system, and I'm confident with the folic acis contributing to maternal tissue growth during my pregnancy.

Would you choose this product to win?

This multivitamin and mineral food supplement supports me through pregnancy and on to breastfeeding and its a great value for money compared to other leading brands, it leaves no aftertaste in the mouth after swallowing and is in an easy to use blister pack, also it's lactose free and free from artificial flavours and preservatives.

What changes would you make to this product?

It would be easier if the two separate tablets of pregnancy support plus and omega 3 capsules were combined, and would prefer the capsules to be in a plastic container with a child proof lid. Also I would like to see a vegetarian suitable pregnancy support tablet or capsule, and the blister pack to be able to be recycled.
