BabyCare Prenatal Essentials includes Usana’s Prenatal Mega Antioxidant vitamin supplement and Prenatal Chelated Mineral supplement with added iron.

"Pregnant women and women who want to become pregnant can reap huge health benefits for themselves, as well as their children, by eating sensibly and taking a well-designed, quality prenatal supplement."
